To sell to an international market using the Internet, the best option is to translate a website into the languages that customers speak.

Translation is expensive. Therefore, to avoid translation costs, some companies use a free machine translation service. Unfortunately, machine translation sometimes gives bad results.

To solve the problems of bad machine translation and the high cost of human translation, a company can use 'international English'. International English is a special type of plain English for people who do not read English as a first language. Machine translation of international English gives excellent results.
