The unique challenges of translating digital content
There’s no doubt that digital content presents many challenges to translators, whether they are working on websites, social media posts or e learning resources. Our experts are well-practised in overcoming them all.
The need for speed
Websites must be updated quickly and frequently. This is particularly problematic when every update requires translation and localisation. Social media posts are incredibly time sensitive and amendments to any content may be required at short notice.
Finding the words that fit
The translation of content isn’t simply a matter of finding the right words. It is also the art of summoning the words which can be accommodated within the confines of the design.
Given the inevitable time constraints and the limits of any budget, websites cannot be endlessly redesigned to accommodate translated copy. In addition, content must be crafted to work on a variety of devices and apps.
Distinct and yet unified
Content for a global market must be created so as to retain its essence while appealing to different audiences. It should be at once unified and culturally distinct. It must be written to resonate with conflicting cultures while not disrupting the integrity of the message or the identity of the brand.
Linguistic and technical accuracy
Linguistic accuracy and technical precision are both essential when translating content. Remaining clear and concise is paramount. But technical content is often the enemy of clarity and brevity.
Idioms, buzz words and humour
Buzz words, idioms and even a little humour can banish blandness from copy and engage an audience. But these are the very elements of any content which are the most difficult to translate appropriately.
Phrases that connect with readers in one country could mystify those in another. Literal translations may even offend a new audience. Buzz words can lose their …..buzz! All languages and cultures are nuanced. The perfect words can quickly become entirely the wrong words.
