Multi-lingual Content

High Monkey and Medtronic worked together to determine a strategy for hosting multiple versions of each content page in different languages and how to display the various versions seamlessly and intuitively.

High Monkey tested the functionality of the new site, fixing any errors that occured to ensure that the site would be fully functional upon launch.

To do this, we provided the Medtronic team with training sessions throughout the project around design, build solutions, and best practices. We also provided the Medtronic team with detailed documentation of the project and overall site build.
