Amazon wants you to translate your listings professionally.
We already knew that professional, human translation was the best way to create relevant and optimised Amazon content in a foreign language.
And Amazon agrees!
This is what the Amazon Ads Retail Certification course (which I renewed for the 5th year running in October 2023) says:
𝗙𝗮𝗰𝘁𝗼𝗿𝘀 𝘁𝗼 𝗰𝗼𝗻𝘀𝗶𝗱𝗲𝗿 𝘄𝗵𝗲𝗻 𝗱𝗲𝗰𝗶𝗱𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝘁𝗼 𝗲𝘅𝗽𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗴𝗹𝗼𝗯𝗮𝗹𝗹𝘆:
💭 Language barriers
💭 Translation costs for listing ASINs in another language
✅ Acknowledging that translation has a cost which should be included in your expansion plans
𝗧𝗼𝗼𝗹𝘀 𝗮𝘃𝗮𝗶𝗹𝗮𝗯𝗹𝗲 𝗳𝗼𝗿 𝗴𝗹𝗼𝗯𝗮𝗹 𝗲𝘅𝗽𝗮𝗻𝘀𝗶𝗼𝗻:
🛠 Amazon Global Selling program with Currency Converter and Build International Listings tools
❌ Zero mention of using machine translation for your listings.
