Consumer & Retail ProductsCSOFT is a leading provider of user document and product packaging translation, website localization, and multicultural brand marketing for consumer products and retail companies.
Consumer product companies derive more revenue from international markets.
Over the past decades, emerging markets have transformed the world’s economy. Smart consumer and retail product businesses such as Procter & Gamble, Sony, Nike, and Wal-mart capitalized on the opportunity by deploying their products internationally to meet overseas demand.
Today, as global competition becomes increasingly fierce, companies in the consumer and retail products industry must redefine their multicultural brand and global strategy for successful overseas development. Whether translating cell phones, fashion wear, product packaging & labeling, or creating user instructions and owner’s manuals, we have the experience, quality processes, and global resources to provide language support services for all your international business needs.
Through CSOFT’s extensive localization experience and global network of in-country linguists, companies will be better equipped to maximize profitability and increase scalability with speed, confidence, and at reduced costs.
Allowing companies to say it right the first time
From concept evaluation to packaging translation, we work with international businesses like P&G, Sony Mobile, and Kodak to ensure that both products and their literature make sense to consumers in their target language market.
As illustrated by the image on the left, poor consumer facing translation can tarnish your international brand image which can take years to overcome. We can help your company to get it right the first time, and communicate a clear message from the very beginning of your global process.

Frequently asked questions
What is in-store interactive product localization?
For years, consumer product companies have been trying to personalize their product offerings to gain greater customer satisfaction and to increase product sales. However, helping customers select the most suitable products from the myriad of choices has always been a challenging proposition. This is exactly what Procter and Gamble hoped to accomplish when they introduced ScalpSense, a portable and easy to use interactive device aimed to help customers select the best shampoo product based on their own hair type.
Should I use a multilingual LSP for localizing my product?
Unlike other types of localization requirements, consumer products often need to be tailored to customers of different locales. This highly customized nature explains why many companies handle consumer product localization through their regional offices in a decentralized fashion. However, although this decentralized model addresses the customization issue, it also brings many other problems such as non-uniform branding, inefficiency, and higher cost to consumer product localization.
