Why Native Translators Are The Key To Transcreation
Your website, marketing material, social media pages, and product information are all an important part of the customer journey. So, when they don’t quite make sense, or just don’t hit the ‘sweet spot’, it can be costly to your business. That’s why you need transcreation.
What Is Transcreation And Why Do I Need It?
Simply put, transcreation goes beyond simply translating the words. Instead, it translates the message, essence and the culture as well. What does that mean, exactly? Well, when you have text in your native language, it’s not been written by someone with an in-depth knowledge of the cultural differences between the original and target languages.
So, when you translate just the words so that it says and means the exact same thing as in the original language, it’s entirely possible for things to get ‘lost in translation’.
Why Is Transcreation By Native Speakers So Important?
Translations can be done by someone with a high proficiency in a language, but they haven’t lived that language their whole lives. They haven’t experienced all the subtle nuances of linguistic devices and persuasion that go into marketing content. Native speakers have.
A native speaker knows exactly how to translate your content to enrich it with the cultural brilliance it needs to shine in the target country’s marketplace. From changing images and titles to sentence structure and localized slang – they’re the only choice for a marketing-related professional translation.
What Kinds Of Things Need Native Translation?
Any content that is designed to be seen by the general public should be translated using transcreation. It can also be a good idea to use transcreation for business plans and other documents that may be seen by investors or board members, so they have a better understanding of the content.
