WHY TRANSLATION MATTERS for the
MARKETING & Advertisement
In a global economy, proper and innovative marketing as well as brand positioning according to various global cultures and values are vital factors in the overall success of a product. Translation plays an essential role in enabling a brand to branch out internationally and promote in as many countries as possible. In addition, a brand’s identity and message must be adapted appropriately for the intended international audience. 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 international audience. An experienced language professional is needed to accomplish this, as creativity and cultural sensitivity are necessary for quality and successful marketing of 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:
• Campaign Materials
• Customer surveys
• Market authorizations
• Marketing collateral
• Newspaper articles
• PowerPoint slides/presentations
• Press releases
• Rack cards/business cards
• Social media posts and profiles
• Website content
+ many other marketing and advertisement-related document materials!
