The challenge

The company was at a crossroads in its growth strategy on YouTube. Despite its popularity and a strong mission to address urban overcrowding through smart design, the company faced challenges in growing and engaging non-English-speaking audiences. The financial and logistical burden of translating and dubbing years’ worth of content (over 250 videos) into multiple languages was an obstacle to further growth.
