Space NK Apothecary Partners with Translations.com to Launch International E-Commerce Site
NEW YORK & LONDON, April 28, 2016 – Translations.com, the world's largest privately held provider of language services and translation-related technologies, today announced a new relationship with Space NK Apothecary to support the launch and ongoing maintenance of four new language sites.
Serving customers in the US, the UK, and Ireland, Space NK offers the best specialist skin care, make up, hair care, fragrance and accessories sourced from around the world. Space NK will employ GlobalLink®—which features a certified link cartridge for Demandware users—to offer a selection of high-end beauty products in Simplified Chinese, French, German and Spanish. The GlobalLink Certified LINK Cartridge for Demandware Commerce will provide Space NK with a powerful solution to initiate, automate, control, track, and complete all facets of the translation process within the familiar Demandware user interface.
“Launching these new international sites is a huge step forward for us,” commented Jez Wilson, Head of E-Commerce at Space NK. “GlobalLink’s ability to integrate directly with our existing Demandware platform has made managing multilingual content easier and more cost-effective than we’d ever imagined, and enables us to expand our existing reach in new markets quickly and efficiently in a localized manner.”
