I wouldn't use the word 'exportation'. Eve though it's correct, according to the dictionary (see below), it's not commonly used. To me, it gives away that the text has been translated.
From the Apple Dictionary:
verb [ trans. ] send (goods or services) to another country for sale : we exported $16 million worth of mussels to Japan.
• spread or introduce (ideas and beliefs) to anothercountry : the Greeks exported Hellenic culture around the Mediterranean basin.
• Computing transfer (data) in a format that can be used by other programs. noun (usu.exports) a commodity, article, or service sold abroad : wool and mohair were the principal exports.
• (exports) sales of goods or services to other countries, or the revenue from such sales : meat exports.
• the selling and sending out of goods or services to other countries : the export of Western technology.
• [as adj. ] of a high standard suitable for export : high-grade export coal.
ORIGIN late 15th cent. (in the sense ‘take away’): from Latin exportare, from ex- ‘out’ + portare‘carry.’ Current senses date from the 17th cent.
