The straight-foward answer (with three votes) lingers below.
Many merchants were in a situation where, upon expanding an online business, they needed to provide a localized version of their store, adjusted to local markets and languages. Creating multi-language (localized) store in Magento 2 is very much easy and in every aspect configurable.

5 ways AI and machine learning will revolutionize the marketer's role
Vinai Koop has opened his Mage2.tv service/channel as a free public beta. Right now there’s over an hour of free Magento 2 tutorials, and a roapmap for what content’s coming next.

These sort of systems are common, but are usually the product of an Enterprise Sales team or Global Digital Brand — both markets that lean away from simple straightforward software. If you’re working with Magento 2, I’d label anything Vinai puts out required viewing/reading.

One of the most powerful types available is bundle products. In my experience, this is the least used product type, and I believe there are several factors influencing its sparse appearance:
