Make an impact in all your markets

Where translation meets copywriting meets content creation.

Give your international customers the same emotional impact and “feel” of your product or service as your customers at home get. That’s what transcreation is all about. It’s essentially copywriting and content creation in another language Transcreation specialists are creative translators with strong marketing and copywriting skills. They recreate your marketing materials in another language and for another culture. And skillfully use every tool available to make sure your message hits home. Your transcreated ad may sound rather different than the original. But will have the impact you want in your target market. And that’s what counts.

Don’t just translate your marketing content—take it on a journey

How is the transcreation process different from translation?

Ideally, your transcreation process starts with a briefing—the more detailed, the better. Just like you gave the original copywriter. Our translator/copywriter then conducts independent research and gets to work fulfilling your brief. The process may involve feedback between you and the translator/copywriter, possibly with back-translations and deep dives into the material if necessary. We’re with you from the first step on this journey through to the destination: an adaptation that achieves the effect you need in your target market.

Different markets, same destination: a mini-case study in transcreation

A cosmetics company needs creative translations for their new “Flawless” line of facial care products. They have already prepared the product descriptions and newsletter for the German market. Now they need to advertise the product launch in France and the Netherlands, too. Our mission: transcreate and localize the slogan and product name for these two target markets. The transcreation process begins. Our experts answer questions like: What names will be well received in Paris and Amsterdam? What’s the best way to adapt the slogan so as to underscore the silky-smooth feel of the product line in words? Our experts will be delighted to work with you, exploring your core messages for each of your target markets and recommending culturally appropriate ways to convey them.
