The Power of Transcreation

Transcreation goes beyond the usual professional translation services to give the content more life and appeal in the target market. It is essential for the publication of marketing and advertising copy in a foreign language. For instance, transcreation is used when you need to localize your website to grow your online presence or if you need to launch your marketing campaign across borders without alienating the new audience.

It typically follows a free and tailored approach and requires both an excellent command of the target language and knowledge of cultural norms and values.

When Should I Hire Transcreation Services?

Transcreation gives your content that extra creative twist that makes it such a highly demanded service by companies looking to grow their brand internationally. We recommend our clients consider transcreation when they want to achieve the following goals:

w

Engage with Your Audience

Enable your business to cross cultural and linguistic barriers and engage with different audiences.

Stay True to Your Brand

While you transform and adapt your message to reach a multilingual audience, it is really important that your business stays true to its voice and values.

What’s the Difference between Transcreation and Translation?

Messages often require the need to communicate jokes, puns, plays on words, figures of speech, and other linguistic implications. Those elements of communication can often get lost in translation. Here are the main differences between translation and transcreation:

Target

While in translation the source text is translated into a specific language, transcreation transforms the source text to adapt it to a specific audience.
z

Tone and Voice

Transcreation pays special attention to tone and voice in order to convey a message that deeply resonates with the target audience and allows them to connect with your company. Translation primarily focuses on terminology and equivalent words.

Creativity

Unlike a translator, who must adhere to stricter linguistic requirements, the transcreator has a greater creative license to transform and create a new message while maintaining the company’s values and identity.

Content

Translation services are appropriate when translating technical, scientific, or academic texts. Transcreation does wonders for marketing-focused, highly-creative content and website translation.
