Greater Fort Lauderdale Launches New Multi-lingual Website
in English, Spanish, French and German

Greater Fort Lauderdale, Fla. - June 16, 2009 - The Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau (GFLCVB) is pleased to announce the launch of a new multi-lingual version of the destination's website, Sunny.org. In addition to the English version, the site can now be viewed in Spanish, French, and German to create a more welcoming and convenient experience for international visitors planning their trip to Greater Fort Lauderdale.

Visitors to Sunny.org can access the multi-lingual versions of the site simply by clicking on the language selector in the upper center of the website’s homepage. The three language website addresses are: http://es.sunny.org; http://fr.sunny.org; http://de.sunny.org.

"To better serve our international visitors, it is so important for our Sunny.org website to speak their language to make it easier to plan their trips and learn more about our hotels, beaches, shops, attractions, and activities," said Nicki E. Grossman, president and CEO of the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau. In 2008, Greater Fort Lauderdale welcomed almost 2.3 million international visitors with Canada, Latin America and Europe the leading markets of visitor origin.

The Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau partnered with MotionPoint Corporation, the leader in website translation and globalisation, to translate the website into the multi-lingual version. MotionPoint’s proprietary technology makes it easy to add any language to any website. The company serves U.S. based and international clients from its headquarters in South Florida.
