Byte Level Research: Website Globalization Research and Consulting
 
 

About Us


Our Mission

Founded in 2000, Byte Level Research is dedicated to the art and science of web globalization.

We believe that the Internet should be fully accessible to all people, regardless of where they live or what language they speak.


We pioneered the practice of global gateway design, and we were the first firm to benchmark global websites across all industries. Over the years, we have studied thousands of websites and consulted with the people who manage these sites.

We've learned a thing or two about what makes a global website truly successful and we share this information through reports, benchmark services, and the popular blog: Global by Design. Want to learn more? Read our FAQ.

We manage the publishing imprint Byte Level Books.

And we provide in-house marketing and web team training on web globalization best practices. Please contact us for more information.
