What is localization?
Do people outside the industry know what localization is? In this CSOFT classic, we watch hilarious and thought-provoking, man-on-the-street interviews in Beijing conducted by CSOFT staff to test people’s understanding of localization.
Should the term “localization” be called something else to better characterize the hard work we put in everyday to help connect businesses with their customers globally?
Translating your content to send the right message
Transcreation is the practice of combining translation and creation (rewriting) to adapt a message, especially in marketing and advertising, from a source language into other target languages. Unlike technical translation that is largely ‘verbatim’, transcreated text deviates – in terms of word choices and culture-specific expressions – from the source in order to convey the purpose and style in the target language. As a result, marketing translation services often involve one of three levels of service:
Translation only. This is the standard translation from the source into the target language. Our normal translation rates apply to standard translation service.
Transcreation. This is standard translation plus minor rewriting or reworking of the translated text to better target the local audience. The rates are standard translation rates +50% additional surcharge.
This is standard translation plus full copy rewriting in the target language which yields the best linguistic and culturally powerful content. The rate for deluxe service is standard translation rate plus our hourly rates based on the scope of each specific project.
