If your store delivers across Europe or the world as a whole, the biggest challenge is creating ads to be served in your audience’s native tongue. Since the launch of Dynamic Language Optimisation (DLO), this has become a worry of the past.

One ad can include up to 6 different language versions meaning no longer do you have to manually transcribe all of your ads into variety of languages (or pay through the nose for a translator), create multiple ad sets for each language or ignore a huge untapped audience due to language restrictions ūüéČūüéČūüéČ

What Does Dynamic Language Optimisation Work With?

We can use DLO with the following options (for now):


How To Create an Ad With Dynamic Language Optimisation

  1. From Ads Manager, start a campaign using the traffic (website) objective, the mobile app installs objective and the conversions (website) objective.
  2. Choose your audience, campaign budget and placements settings in the Ad set section.

To understand the performance of your ad:

  1. Go to Ads Manager.
  2. Choose the Ad Sets tab and select the ad set you want to view the reporting for.
  3. You can see the reporting for each language by selecting Breakdown and then choosing By Asset type (either headline or body text).

I will be using Dynamic Language Optimisation but there are a few things I will keep in mind. Firstly, to keep the language in the ads very simplistic and clear for a better translation. Secondly, if I have the option to have a person who is fluent in the language I am targeting available for manual transcription, I will go with the manual approach for accuracy.
