Hank Haney International Junior Golf Academy Launches Spanish Website


HILTON HEAD ISLAND, SC – Hank Haney International Junior Golf Academy (Hank Haney IJGA) has officially launched a Spanish version of the website (http://espanol.ijga.com). For the past 4 months, Hank Haney IJGA has worked closely with MotionPoint to create an effective “transcreation” of the current website into Spanish. This included paying close attention to current themes, popular terms, and particular dialects of Hank Haney IJGA users from Spanish-speaking countries.

MotionPoint's website translation and globalisation service easily localises any website for any market. Founded in 2000, MotionPoint has accumulated a long list of clients, including Best Buy, Delta Air Lines, and Citibank.

"We are excited to create a new virtual experience for our Spanish-speaking online users. Our business is truly international with our students coming to us from more than 28 countries worldwide. By providing our consumers information about Hank Haney IJGA in their own language, we hope they will spend more time on our website and look deeper into our junior golf training capabilities," stated Peter Orrell, CEO of Junior Golf Corporation, which operates Hank Haney IJGA.

Hank Haney IJGA utilized their strong relationship with the Mexican Golf Federation and College Prospects of America to develop this idea and make it a reality. Both organisations provided valuable insight in the development of the Spanish website.

"The Mexican Golf Federation is excited for the launch of the Spanish Hank Haney IJGA website. By providing the site in an alternate language, it will give our junior golfers and their families the opportunity to more easily communicate and find more information about Hank Haney IJGA junior golf training programs," said Alberto Kaneda, National Coach for High Performance Junior Golf Programs of the Mexican Golf Federation.
