What is a Multilingual Chatbot?
A multilingual chatbot provides multiple language support to users and can interact with customers in multiple languages. Nowadays for businesses that are operating worldwide multilingual chatbots are a mandatory requirement.
The world is now more connected with social media, and multilingual chatbots resolve the language hurdle for any kind of business.
Why do Multilingual chatbots are needed for Businesses?
Consider a scenario where you are marketing and selling your product worldwide.
One of the Spanish speaking customers visits your website and start inquiring about the product & its features in the Spanish language, but your chatbot can only answer in English and it’s saying “Sorry I’m unable to understand your language. Could you please type your query in English?”
That’s it, the customer will leave your site and will explore other options and you have lost a potential client.
With Multilingual chatbots, you can provide 24X7 service and also able to provide a better and personalized conversation experience in customer preferred language.

Most of the users choose their native language while chatting with the chatbots. So, if you want your business to grow and become popular globally, you need to invest in multilingual chatbots.

With multilingual chatbots, you can enhance customer satisfaction and engagement to a different level. Consider you are having an eCom store selling worldwide. The multilingual chatbots easily resolve the native language customers’ issues like product exchange, returns, etc.
If the chatbots don’t support their preferred language then there is a high possibility that the customer can explore other options.
