GPI worked closely with McDonald’s Interactive Agency, Marsteller, who designed the English site. McDonalds was using a proprietary web content management system (web CMS) to publish their English content and needed to utilize the CMS to handle multiple languages. After reviewing the CMS’s functionality, GPI designed a simple 5-step custom localization workflow in order to interface with the proprietary CMS and provide website globalization services.
