Opt for creative marketing translations to communicate effectively with your customers
Transcreation: creative translation
Transcreation or ‘creative translation’ is the act of re-writing marketing and communication content for a specific community or culture. Transcreation can be used on anything from brochures to leaflets, press releases, market research, questionnaires, promotional texts and websites. The aim is to generate the same emotional impact in the target language as in the original language.
Creative translation ensures that translated messages are equally effective in all chosen markets. The word ‘transcreation’ is a combination of the terms translation and creation. As such, it’s both more complex and precise than simple translation. The term was coined by marketing and advertising professionals with the aim of identifying a new way of translating, specifically with marketing in mind.
Take your business abroad with transcreation
Growing your business by promoting your products and services abroad is also referred to as ‘internationalisation.’ To succeed, you need a precise, powerful marketing strategy curated using certain criteria, all while making use of specialised translators who can convey your original brand message with the same impact in another language.
During the transcreation process, marketing content is localised to render it accessible to a target audience. Of course, it’s not only language that changes from country to country but also the culture. As such, Eurotrad begins by re-formulating the original message so that it speaks to the target audience, making sure to use cultural references that are relevant to the target population.
Transcreation allows companies to convey the style, intent, tone of voice and emotional salience of the original message to a target audience. With a team of translators specialised in over 70 languages, Eurotrad is able to overcome any language barrier.
