Our service with eBay - overview

WebInterpret localises items sold on eBay into international markets using a listing process which involves the following:

  1. Item selection process
  2. Title optimization
  3. Mapping terms to our industry dictionaries
  4. Automatic or Manual translation (depending on requirement)
  5. Localising listings to marketplace rules, currencies and shipping requirements
  6. Listing items on international marketplaces

Most of our translations are automatic but we often manually translate listings when faced with new expressions. Our system, a unique ecommerce, category-focused translation memory built on over 44 million listed items, is more accurate than any other automated machine translation process on the market.

Please check this guide on how we localise on eBay.

Additional things we can do for you

Since we take on the responsibility of managing your international listings, we can also do the following:

  • Put your items on holiday mode (you must put the original items in holiday mode)
  • Translate the automatic messages in holiday mode
  • Add extra information to header and footer templates
  • Customise your translations using the WebInterpret dashboard
  • Blacklist items you do not want translated
  • Retranslate if you are not satisfied (we will use the same method we used in the original translation)
  • Manually retranslate your automatic listings for an additional fee. For more information about this service, check our article on manual translations
  • Remove countries you do not want to sell in
  • Change item prices
  • Convert sizes in specific categories

    • Keep sizes in translated titles if eBay’s 80 character limit has been reached (if it hasn’t, we will retain size in title)

    • localize JavaScript templates.
