ADVERTISING AND MARKETING TRANSLATION
Creating a global strategy for a company is a very complex and delicate process. One of the most complex aspects is certainly the communicative one. In fact, marketing is key to a company’s success and the most direct instrument to get acquainted with in the shortest possible time. In a process aimed at conquering international markets, it is vital that a company’s marketing and advertising translations are not only precise and accurate, but also attentive to the target audience. An advertising strategy tailored to the country of origin should be entirely adapted to the country you are hoping to target. A task that requires extreme attention, but also a lot of creativity, as well as skills in the translation and digital marketing sectors.
The importance of advertising translations
The effectiveness of an advertising message is based on knowledge of the culture and social and cultural context of the country of reference. In the absence of in-depth knowledge, an advertising translator will not be able to carry out his or her job effectively. The true goal, when translating advertisements, rather than simply translating the original text, is to convey the original message’s intent in another language. Often this can, and must, involve words with a completely different meaning to those in the source text. Consider, for example, a slogan that uses a play on words or a metaphor that doesn’t effectively transfer into the target language: a literal translation would be entirely inadequate. The translator must find an expression in the target language that is “equivalent” to that of the source text while being completely different. Carrying out this sort of task requires the use of mother tongue translators with full knowledge of both the cultures involved in the process.
