Viewers of the Middlesex Cricket website will now be able to easily view content in multiple languages at the simple click of a button, with translations available in Hindi, Urdu, Bengali and Sinhala; allowing more and more of our fans access to the club’s content.
The translation service, provided by online accessibility specialists, Recite Me, whose web accessibility service Middlesex has used for the past three years, has been built into the Club’s website to make accessing web content in your chosen language that much easier.
Website viewers simply need to click the ‘Choose Language’ button at the top of the Middlesex website, then select their preferred language from the drop-down menu.
Selecting any language from this menu will change all written content to the desired language across the entire website.
Speaking of this new addition to the Middlesex website, Ankit Shah, Co-Chair of the Club’s Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Committee commented:
“For a number of years now we have used Recite Me’s accessibility service on our website, which has proven to be hugely important in improving the experience for all visitors to the Middlesex website.
“The addition of a chosen language short-cut is a simple, but, important step forward.
“Our county has one of the most diverse populations in the country, and for us to be effectively engaging with the many diverse communities our county comprises, we need to make our website content easily accessible.
“With the additions of Shaheen Shah Afridi earlier this season, and more recently Umesh Yadav, we have seen an increase in engagement across our channels from all around the world, so to be providing access to our website in multiple languages is more important now than ever. This is one small step in improving accessibility and engagement for all Middlesex fans.
“Our thanks go to the team at Recite Me for bolting on this essential service to our website, and we will continue to look for ways that we can make ourselves more accessible to cricket lovers across London and throughout Middlesex.”
