The “Linked content” function, also allows you add links to pre-existing routes allowing your booklet to deliver even greater value from your content.

As our platform is multilingual and international in nature, both the content and layouts are exported to the booklet in the selected language of My Business. Not only does this mean that no additional translation effort is necessary, but you are also able to directly provide your guests with the content they need in the right language.
