Translation of marketing material may involve texts such as:
Advertisements and advertising texts
SEO and web texts
Social media content
And more besides.
You: “I’d like to order a translation, please.”
Us: “Certainly. It’ll be ready to collect in three days.”
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if it were that easy? But it isn’t. Sorry.
There is more to translation than “just” translating. There are multiple facets to the art of transforming a text from one language into another. Generally speaking, there are three buzzwords to know when your texts need just that: to be transformed.
It boosts your credibility
It reinforces your brand
It helps you to get your message across
It raises your profile
While it is one thing to have your website texts translated correctly, it is quite another to have them SEO-optimised for your new market. Your web texts might be the best in the world – but if they don’t help your company appear high on the list of search engine hits, they’re about as much use as a chocolate teapot.
Marketing translation is a rarefied discipline. Linguistic correctness always takes top priority, but when translating marketing material, there is often a tone of voice and a particular style that need to be replicated in the target language. This may involve elements of humour, plays on words, imagery and more besides.
That is why we always choose a translator with marketing experience to handle your marketing translation project. It makes a difference.
“Marketing translations are some of the most interesting projects I get to work on as a project manager because they can involve so many different facets of the translation process. In contrast to technical manuals, for instance, marketing texts often involve colourful language, slang, metaphors and the like – which all pose exciting and sometimes mind-bending challenges to a translator.
So if, like me, you’re captivated by everything to do with language, it’s fascinating to gain insight into the creative solutions translators have to come up with to tackle aspects such as cultural peculiarities, idiomatic expressions that simply cannot be translated directly, and so on. This is where I, as a project manager, really get to appreciate the translator’s skill and professionalism!”
A great many! Right now, we translate into 75 target languages in 250 language combinations. And our range of languages is expanding all the time.
This is one of the big advantages of our model, which is based on a global network of freelance translators: every time a new need emerges, we recruit a language specialist who has what it takes to handle it.
A number of parameters determine the cost of a specific translation.
These include the type of text, the language combination and the size of the Translation Memory we have built up for you.
We always quote you the best possible price based on these parameters.
We work primarily – and most regularly – with companies active in the fields of transport & logistics, software, data & IT, robot technology, agriculture, industry and trade & service.
However, we cover many more areas than that, and we have translators with a variety of specialities on our books.
