Creative Translation Services

When you truly need to make a deep connection with an audience in another language, sometimes a straight translation, however accurate, isn’t enough. Clarity, humour and cultural references can all be lost in translation, making your message at best ineffective, or at worst damaging to your brand. Our transcreation services use specialist creative translators to produce a version of your message that resonates with a new audience in a different culture, not just a different language. The end result might have a completely different wording or concept to your original version, but it will make an emotional connection with the audience because it will make the most of cultural knowledge and language. Creating a message that fits a local market is a powerful way for brands and companies to reach new markets. From a one-word brand name that represents your whole business to longform content on your website, our creative translation services include all types of copy, from website content and company literature to advertising straplines, brand names and taglines. Our translators can work in all media, including print, website transcreation, audio and televisual.

A Step Beyond Translation

We have provided creative translation services for a wide range of brands and companies across sectors from retail and technology to the medical industry and publishing. Our transcreation team have worked on slogans, jingles, taglines, brand names, adverts, website content, software and much more, delivering creative results that break free from translation into creativity. Our transcreation team understand branding, marketing and sales techniques and can help you leverage these in their native language. We are proud of our work for luxury chocolatier Hotel Chocolate, who asked us to translate advertising slogans such as “It’s so spicy it will blow your socks off”. This colourful English language idiom worked well in their home market, but the direct translation was non-sensical in their new target market of Spain. Our creative translation involved a Spanish phrase involving a bull and red eyes – unknown in English-speaking markets but effective in Spanish ones!
