Wix Website Builder – Now in Spanish

Now Spanish speakers can easily design custom Flash websites using a fully translated platform.

This week marked the launch of Wix Espa̱ol Рthe Spanish version of the Wix.com website builder. Now Spanish speakers can easily design custom Flash websites using a fully translated platform.

Wix Founder and CEO Avishai Abrahami comments, “This is the perfect way to start a new year and a whole new direction for the Wix community. Thanks to the incredible efforts of an amazing team across all departments at Wix.com, Wix is ​​entirely in Spanish.

The Wix product is an online graphics-based web editor that allows you to easily create your own website by dragging and dropping design elements onto a free website “workspace”. Users can add text, images, media files, buttons, links, widgets and more without having to enter a single line of code. There is also a large gallery of free web templates that users can customize with Wix. The tool is very useful for small business owners, freelancers, artists, photographers, nonprofits, and anyone else looking for a creative and streamlined solution for online promotion.

Translating the heart of Wix – the publisher itself – allows Spanish speakers to quickly compose their own free websites, with a natural workflow using prompts in their native language. Everything from choosing a site name to customizing design elements to adding pages to the post is done using intuitive prompts in Spanish.

The translation effort has extended beyond the product itself, into areas such as billing and support. Website builder users can get instant answers from an ISQ feature, in Spanish. Free website hosting is provided for all sites built with Wix, and users can now upgrade their free websites to a Wix Premium plan through a fully translated billing system.

Wix.com itself has also been translated. The main areas of the site, such as the free website template gallery, the showcase of the best Flash websites created with Wix, are in Spanish. When a person accesses Wix.com, they can click on the national flag icon located in the upper right corner of the page.

Wix has been multilingual “friendly” for some time; the company has been running Spanish and French channels on Facebook and Twitter since last year. The German, Spanish, French and Italian homepages were created around the same time, visible through the national flag icons in the upper right corner of each version of wix.com.

“This massive translation effort takes things to a whole new level, exposing the Spanish-speaking members of the Wix community to a much more personalized version of the entire user experience,” says Ido Rabiner, product manager of the Wix project. Languages.

Wix plans to continue the translation effort so that Wix users in all countries can create their own websites with the same ease of use as English speakers and Spanish speakers. The Portuguese version is due out this month, and at least 3 more languages ​​will be released this year.

Wix Español can be visited from the main Wix page via the Spanish flag icon at the top right. You can also join Wix Español on Facebook and Twitter for regular updates on new product features, promotions, and Wix-related news.

Wix was established in 2006 and is funded by Mangrove Capital Partners, Bessemer Venture Partners and Benchmark Capital. The company is located in New York, with offices in San Francisco and Tel Aviv.
