Translation Isn't Blind: How to sell out of a new product in 24 hours with Vitamix from Smartling on Vimeo.

Translation Isn't Blind

Max and his team at Vitamix demonstrated how important it is to have robust technology and translation services in place to ensure products can be launched in global markets efficiently - and to a high degree of success. They even sold out of one new product in just 24 hours.

Their go-to-market strategy is two fold: first, they work with distributors worldwide who sell Vitamix products in market; second, they sell directly to consumers online in specific markets, like the United States and Canada. Vitamix uses Smartling's Global Delivery Network and language translation services to provide content and product experiences for users anywhere, today.
