One of the great things about Chicago is that it’s a true cultural melting pot. People from all over the world settle here, and they bring along part of their home countries.
As a company employing over 1200 people from the greater Chicagoland area, it’s only natural that Abt would reflect that same diversity. Our employees come from six continents (working on getting some penguins employed to make it all seven) and dozens of countries. Did you know that employees at Abt speak over 20 different languages? So if someone ever needs help ordering an amplifier in Armenian, a grill in Gujarati or a range in Russian, there’s an Abt team member that can help.
And to better help our online customers, we recently rolled out a language translation option for Abt.com. Powered by Google Translate, users can now shop the Abt Electronics website in one of ten foreign languages. To activate translation, simply scroll to the bottom of any page at Abt.com and pick your desired language from the menu bar on the left side.
From that point on, all Abt.com webpages will be auto-translated into the language you’ve chosen. And while computer translations aren’t always perfect, this option should hopefully make the online shopping experience a little easier for many of our customers.
And with that, we say adios, au revoir, ciao, auf wiedersehen, and until next time!
