WebInterpret Acquires Ecommerce Platform Ekos Global

Ecommerce translation company WebInterpret has acquired London-based cross-border ecommerce platform, Ekos Global.

WebInterpret have acquired Ekos Global to help them transition from a provider of localisation software for Amazon and eBay sellers, to a full-featured cross-border sales solution.

Ekos was launched in 2012 by British and Swedish entrepreneurs Fitch Richardson and Andre Borgstrom. The platform enables online retailers to rapidly expand into foreign markets through generating localised versions of their online store. Ekos connects with over 30 popular ecommerce platforms and allows retailers to run their international stores in parallel and in sync with their domestic store. The founders will join WebInterpret's team.

Webinterpet also announced the launch of their newest product "Global Stores". Like Ekos's own product, Global Stores enables retailers to rapidly generate and deploy localised versions of their store in international markets.

WebInterpret CEO, Patrick Smarzynski said "We are hugely excited with both the launch of our new product and the acquisition of Ekos Global. Ekos's expertise in taking domestic stores global combined with WebInterpret's technology and experience in localising retailers' businesses at scale is the perfect match. We've had a lot of demand from retailers wanting to use the same easy and affordable solution to not only localise their marketplace business but also their own online stores. We look forward to helping even more retailers grow their business globally thanks to this comprehensive solution".
