I run my own English Premier League soccer results website. Given the popularity of EPL in Asia I would like to create Korean, Chinese and Indonesian language versions - as I have Adsense on it would be great to reach a wider audience. As it is basically only two pages I’m hoping that this shouldn’t be too much work.

 

Has anyone tried to do similar? I was wondering what are the key things I need to take into account, or major pitfalls, e.g..

 

 Fonts – how best to enable Asian fonts on a webpage

 

  • Are there a major cultural aspects to creating Asian language versions that I need to be aware of? Is it perhaps really not as simple as I am suggesting.
  • Is a local domain preferable?
  • How does Asian language work on Google search?
  • Translation – can I use online tools or has anyone used a service?
  • Anything else?
Any pointers appreciated.




My EPL football websites: Get the results but hide the score of your team at HidetheScore.net. Compare league positions with wage bills at RealPremierLeague.net.

Unicode should work everywhere; all of the major browsers support it. You'll need to choose fonts (and I can't offer any advice there) but the actual technical issues behind those fonts/characters are all already solved if you use Unicode.

Something I see more often than I should on international sites is when they mix up language and location. For example, my browser reports itself as UK English (it doesn't have an NZ English option). Some sites treat this as "I'm in the UK" and give me prices in pounds, UK phone numbers etc. This is the opposite of what you're asking, but hopefully it gets my point across - make sure that you either use the browser's language header or give a menu of some sort. Don't try to figure out the language from their IP address.

I don't know about your other questions.
