A Language Module allows you to display your BBCanada.com listing to visitors from around the world in English and French.
Please note that your B&B name, contact information and pictures will be identical to your primary language. Your additional language page is not a second listing. If you would like to purchase up to 5 additional locations, please see BBDUG Section 13 Location Management.
What are the benefits of having this option? There are many advantages; the most important one is that you have now opened your business to a greater client base nationally and internationally. People are much more apt to look at your site if it is in their mother tongue. This will allow clients to have a better understanding of the services you offer and provide for a more satisfying stay.
Some owners have expressed concern that they don't speak the second language and they don't want to mislead the prospective visitors. This is a fair comment and we would suggest that you note this in one of your 4-5 concise statements.
Language Module purchase options:
The cost is $15 + applicable tax per year.
Once purchased, we will activate the ability for you to use BBDUG and add the language information yourself. Modifying the language module is simple. Go to BBDUG; enter your username and password; modify your text under Section 4 - Description Area (Francais) / Language Module and save. Your modifications will appear automatically and immediately. Nothing could be simpler! Don't forget to keep both languages up to date to maximize the benefits.
Language Module with translation:
The cost is $50 + applicable tax (one time initial fee.) Our bilingual French speaking staff will translate your main page and bedroom page text.
