STAMFORD, Conn., Aug. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Conair is very proud to announce the launch of the Spanish-language version of Conair.com. This innovative new site provides our Hispanic customers with access to all that Conair has to offer online, in their primary language. Our ultimate goal at Conair is to ensure that our customers have the best possible experience with our products, both online and in stores, and this new site helps us to achieve that goal. To ensure accuracy and quality, Conair engaged industry leader MotionPoint Corporation to provide seamless translation services.
The Conair customer base is large and diverse, and we strive to offer products and services that appeal to the ever-changing multicultural face of America. Statistics show that the Spanish-speaking population is rapidly increasing, up 43 percent between 2000 and 2010. Hispanics now constitute 16 percent of the country's residents and are the largest ethnic group.* And because Hispanics are far more engaged online than primary English speakers**, offering a Spanish-language website is an essential element of the Conair online experience.
"The Spanish website underscores our focus on these important Hispanic customers by giving them a positive online environment," said Paulette Heller, Vice President of Marketing. "This will strengthen their engagement with the Conair brand and the products they love."
Robin Linsley, Vice President of Marketing, concurs. "Our Spanish-speaking customers are a vital part of our community, and we welcome the opportunity to make their online interactions with Conair as user friendly as possible."
To access the Spanish site, simply go to http://www.conair.com and click on espanol in the upper right-hand corner. Our customer service line now offers assistance in Spanish as well, at 1-800-3-CONAIR or 1-800-326-6247.
