About the project
We supported KEEN in their path to entering the Japanese market by testing and localizing their recently renewed global online store website. We held an intensive four-phases long user testing session to assure that the website functioned as intended and the on-site customer experience was stellar. We performed tests on both the Japanese and English language versions of the website. In addition, we helped KEEN properly localize their website to the standards and expectations of Japan. We checked translations and advised KEEN on aspects of UX design that are specific to Japan, such as forms or checkout processes.
