Transcreation is an important aspect of a company’s marketing strategy in a foreign market. It is important that an organization is able to speak to its customers in a language they understand and are comfortable with.
Many marketing and advertising campaigns appeal to a customer’s sense of familiarity by using colloquialisms and utilizing language registers that bring about a positive emotional response towards the product.
A number of advertising campaigns have been so successful that their brand names, colors, logos and slogans are immediately recognizable, regardless of language and cultural barriers.
However, a number of concerns need to be taken in to account before a message can be brought over from one culture into another.
Chief among these concerns is whether the target language has a literal equivalent of the message intending to be conveyed. There are many expressions used frequently in one language, that when translated in to another would seem bizarre. Similarly, tone, context and cultural sensitivities must be acknowledged before a corporate message is disseminated in a foreign market.
