When moving into new locales, it is a given that businesses will need to translate all their marketing and promotional materials. However, it is never sufficient to simply translate the words directly from one language to another. To affect a translation without taking into consideration the culture, the customs and the colloquialisms of your target audience can prove disastrous. At best, you will fail to engage with potential overseas customers. At worst, though, you may unwittingly cause offense, which could seriously damage your brand’s international reputation and prevent you from making any further progress into those lucrative overseas markets.
At a fundamental level, cross cultural marketing involves taking into consideration the fact that words and phrases can take on different meanings in different cultures. Beyond this, care must be taken when it comes to graphics, design layouts, and even the formatting of such things as dates, prices, and telephone numbers. Our translation teams leverage their local expertise and conduct extensive research to ensure that all these key criteria are met.
