With December firmly upon us, most businesses around the world are preparing for Christmas Day on 25 December. In fact, as this map shows, the majority of countries in the world mark Christmas with some kind of holiday:

If you’re working in a global company, odds are you need to deliver content in dozens of languages and channels and across an array of regions and cultures, in order to attract and foster relationships with clients, partners and employees and maximize returns on investments. Like other campaigns throughout the year, holiday messaging should be localized to show that you know your target. Whether they are to be sent via digital or physical platforms, to clients, partners or employees – the season is all about being welcoming and warm to everyone.
In a multicultural environment, the choice of words also needs to be carefully thought out and suitable for your target audience. As you probably don’t have the time or resources to create personalized greetings for everyone, neutral taglines such as “Happy Holidays” and “Season’s Greetings” are safe bets, applicable to audiences across regions and faiths.
To help you share the multilingual goodwill, we’re providing you with the translation of “Happy Holidays” or “Season’s Greetings” in 33 different languages:
