This paper describes an experimental study examining the impacts of culture on web site design and usability, in terms of localisation and internationalisation. A pilot study has been undertaken to determine the effectiveness of the research design, methodology and the following enhancements for a much larger study, addressing the cultural differences among people and issues in relation to the localisation/internationlisation of web sites. The rationale is to investigate whether web sites are useful for specific cultural groups or for a general population of users. This paper presents an overview of the experimental study and reports on the results of a main study phase.
