WHY TRANSLATION MATTERS for the
Digital distribution has continued to revolutionize and change the way consumers acquire entertainment and media content, creating new growth opportunities while diminishing others. Regardless of distribution being physical or digital, as a business transcends borders, the need to communicate in their target markets’ own language is vital to overall success, expansion, and maximization of exposure and profit. This requires not only translation but also localization, which ensures that the tone/style is properly conveyed to suitably portray the originally intended message to the target audience. An experienced language professional is needed to accomplish this, as creativity and cultural sensitivity are necessary for quality and successful entertainment-related translations into other languages.
While possible content types within the industry vary widely, some common documents and materials we frequently translate and localize include the following:
• Art exhibit programs
• Brochures/flyers/promotional material
• Business cards
• Closed captioning
• Critic reviews
• Magazine and newspaper articles
• PowerPoint slides/presentations
• Restaurant menus
• Social media posts/profiles
• Video game translation
• Scripts and books
• Website content
+ many other documents and materials!
