Web Pages by Language

According to Forrester Research, 50 percent of all online sales will be sold outside the US by 2004, meaning that multilingual sites are a must for companies looking to succeed in the new economy.

So what languages dominate the Web? It should come as no surprise that English still dominates the Web, with more than two-thirds of the Web’s pages being in English. According to a study by Vilaweb, a Web site in the language Catalan, Japanese is the second most popular language of Web sites.
