“Transcreation”, which is also known as “creative translation”, is a localized rewrite of texts for marketing and communication documents, including brochures, leaflets, press releases, market research, questionnaires, promotional texts, and also web sites. The aim is to create a message with the same impact as the original, but in the target language.
“Transcreation” helps to:
- ensure that the translated message is received in all countries simultaneously and with the same communicative efficiency;
- reduce the times needed to localize the same message in different languages, using unique, reliable partners;
- optimise the production costs of an ad campaign, guaranteeing increased ROI.
The aim of using “transcreation” is to transfer the intention, style, tone and emotional salience of the message in its original language to that of its intended audience. This process requires marketing expertise, language skills and a firm grasp of the target culture. This technique expands the translation so that its focus goes beyond the literal text, touching on the emotional responses of the users in the original language and working to arouse the same response in the target market. In plain terms, this means “taking a concept in one language and totally recreating it in another”.
Thanks to its careful recruitment processes, Eurotrad is able to provide “transcreation” project support services for successful ad campaigns and marketing strategies.
