Boréas’ global roadmap includes China, one of world’s largest consumer electronics markets in the world.
To target this high-growth market, the Boréas team has set up market-specific content on its Shopify site and localized that content accordingly with Weglot.
As Shopify sites inherently aren’t performance-optimized for China, they naturally searched for solutions to improve the overall performance, user experience, and searchability of their site for their China visitors.
