Have you ever wanted to race to conquer obstacles involving tunnels, 20-foot walls, nets, fire, ice, electricity, and mud? You can do just that in a Tough Mudder event. The Tough Mudder challenges are maybe a bit sadistic—and gleefully so as you might judge from the passion of the participants—but people sign up in droves. For example, there's an obstacle called the Augustus Gloop in which competitors climb up a plastic shaft through cascading water. Electroshock Therapy—probably the event’s signature challenge—has participants running through a gauntlet of dangling electric wires. (The rest of us are fascinated, but we will stay in our armchairs, thank you very much.)

It’s old news that customer experience (CX) is one of the biggest differentiators of our times. Ever since the digital revolution opened up international markets to pretty much anyone with a computer, businesses have had to step up their game to win global buyers. As a result, CX has moved to one of the top spots on the priority lists of CMOs everywhere.

For B2B companies, content marketing has proven to be a hugely successful strategy. It’s based on a simple idea: create a regular flow of valuable content that helps your audience understand and tackle their business issues—and keeps your brand top of mind for when they’re ready to buy. But getting that content right in your own market is challenging enough. How do you replicate the approach in markets you’re less familiar with?

Let’s be honest: traditional localization and marketing operations have never consulted each other much. In most companies, they operate in departmental silos, stubbornly refusing to acknowledge that they need one another.

Your business’s brand equals the perception everyone has about it and its products. When you’re a global business (or you want to be), it’s quite a challenge to control that.

  We’re beginning to see a lot of content coming up around the localization industry. In the past, we reviewed a book on globalization, and now there’s a massive open online course (MOOC) on localization. It can’t be anything but good news for the industry—we need as much attention as we can get.  Localization Essentials has a lot going for it, given that it’s offered by Google. Its celebrity status aside, the course, hosted on Udacity, has many nice touches, light humor, insider insight, and some hands-on learning, too. Overall, this student enjoyed it and learned quite a few new things.

We don’t think it’s radical to say that content is unstoppable in its move towards digital, and it’s getting more and more complex every day: there’s an explosion in the amount of online content, it’s being delivered in a huge array of formats and channels, and print is being left far behind. And if that online digital content doesn’t perform in all languages and markets, then you’re sunk.

We’ve always known it—and now we have the facts to back it up. A just-released report from KPMG and Google on Indian languages provides much-needed critical data to back what we’ve always said: you need to localize into Indian languages, despite the seemingly all-encompassing English proficiency.

Gone are the days of print-based marketing. Messaging and content types, channels, and processes have all changed in today’s digital marketing world. And then you go global and multiply it by any number of languages, and localization is now a part of marketing, rather than an afterthought once the campaign goes live.
