Since the rollout of our Chinese and German sites, Trinseo has created a better user experience to strengthen our customer relationships
Senior Digital Marketing Representative, Trinseo
In 2012, Trinseo engaged MotionPoint to translate and operate its English website for the German market. The success of the site led to the launch of a Simplified Chinese website for the Chinese market in 2014. Trinseo subsequently re-platformed to the Sitecore CMS, and the website underwent a major redesign about a year later.
Through the entire process, MotionPoint worked closely with Trinseo and its digital agencies, delivering authentic translations, excellent site uptime, and a smooth and successful migration and redesign.
"MotionPoint optimised Trinseo's multilingual websites with translated URLs, a global sitemap, and on-site search functionality that improved organic traffic and enhanced the user experience."
With MotionPoint, Trinseo now serves customers in Germany and China with translated websites that support the company’s fast growth in those regions.
“Since the rollout of our Chinese and German sites, Trinseo has created a better user experience to strengthen our customer relationships,” said Natalie Yuengel, Trinseo’s Senior Digital Marketing Representative.
MotionPoint also optimised Trinseo's multilingual websites with translated URLs, a global sitemap, and on-site search functionality that supports multiple languages. These resulted in improved organic traffic and an enhanced website experience.
Throughout the website redesign in 2016, MotionPoint, Trinseo and its digital agencies collaborated closely. "MotionPoint did a great job of working with our other agencies, ensuring that all the intricacies were covered on the redesigned translated sites," noted St. Germain. "Everybody was dedicated to getting it done. That's what really made a difference in the end."
"MotionPoint's expertise elevated our website," said Yuengel. "Not only did MotionPoint make recommendations for our Chinese and German sites, but their suggestions carried into the design of our English site as well. For example, we learned to consider that English translations into German extended the length of the text while English to Chinese shortened the text. These details ensured that we designed our corporate site to be user friendly across all three languages."
Trinseo's success illustrates that even companies with lean teams and limited resources can easily and affordably serve global customers. "MotionPoint has been a great partner. Customer service is definitely one of their major differentiators," said St. Germain.
Trinseo's global business is also growing faster than ever. With MotionPoint, the company is well-positioned to sustain its international growth of customers in Germany and China-and beyond.
