Translation, Localisation & Transcreation Workshop
€70.00 – €85.00 Excl. Tax
Understand the processes and procedures involved in translation, localisation and transcreation. Transcreation is a broadly misunderstood term that means different things to different people. Companies that choose to transcreate their brand messages and materials ensure that audiences the world over experience the same emotional reactions to their brand. We will explain how transcreation takes translation further than the adaptation of content in one language to another whilst protecting the meaning of the words. We will talk though how it brings together marketing, linguistics, creative copywriting and design, taking account of tone, nuance, colour and style.
Who should attend?
This workshop is aimed at non-linguist Project and Product Managers across all sectors and those working on multi-territory research, marketing, PR and communications campaigns that are responsible for managing projects requiring translation, localisation or transcreation.
