When a user searches using Fast Browser Search, we want that user to feel at home on our results page. That means providing the user with an experience that is localized.
Englewood Cliffs, NJ (Vocus) October 1, 2009
Fast Browser Search, which features algorithmic results and sponsored listings from Google, Yahoo, and Bing, today announced that it has translated the vast majority of its site into 20 languages. These include, in alphabetical order: Chinese (Simplified), Czech, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Portugese, Portuguese-Brazil, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish as well as its initial language, English
“The decision to translate our search site into so many languages was driven by the universal appeal of our MyWebTattoo, Tattoodle, and Tattoons products,” said Michael Goldberg, head of product development for the company. “When a user searches using Fast Browser Search, we want that user to feel at home on our results page. That means providing the user with an experience that is localized.”
Fast Browser Search has grown in popularity, given the success of the company’s consumer products. MyWebTattoo and its associated Facebook and MySpace apps (branded Tattoodle) boast the Internet’s largest collection of free virtual tattoos for use on social networking sites. Each graphic is an individual work of art, created by world-class illustrators and colorists. Some are tranquil, while others appeal to a more edgy personality. Each displays a vibrancy of color that makes it worthy of being a Tattoodle graphic. The majority of these tattoos are available in “glitter” and “sequin” format, in addition to “plain”, further enhancing the diversity of these assets. Users can share these graphics or post them to their Profile. They can also create tattoo displays, which are user-customized collages of the company’s graphics. Finally, users can personalize tattoos.
Tattoons is a new section of the Tattoodle Facebook app that allows users to create caricatures of themselves. Users can then post their personalized cartoon to their Profile and send it to their friends on Facebook. Tattoons offers an incredible depth of personalization. Users can choose among a wide range of facial shapes, hair styles and colors, eye shapes and colors, noses, eyeglasses, and (for men) facial hair, including beards, mustaches, goatees, and even sideburns. In addition, users can accessorize their Tattoons with a wide selection of shoes, hats, and other fun items. And, of course, all of these various elements can be reflected in a broad spectrum of colors, as selected by the users. Users can even decide whether their Tattoon is right- or left-handed.
