Marketing Translation & Localisation

We provide specialised marketing translation and localisation services to help your brand grow across different countries and regions.

 

Engage International Audiences with Marketing Translation and Localisation

Goodman Lantern’s marketing translation and localisation services will make your brand sound as fluent as a native speaker.

 

International brands use specialised marketing translation and localisation to adapt their marketing and advertising content to achieve maximum engagement with their target audiences worldwide.

 

Many of today’s brands aim to have a strong presence in international markets while also reaching audiences locally. This means speaking the same language and understanding the local society and culture. 

 

Awareness of the specific nuances is crucial, which is why excellent translation, localisation, and transcreation services are the way to go.

 

Localisation and transcreation are about adapting your content to the socio-cultural context, identifying and focusing on the points that appeal to your target audience. A good service provider will also help you to avoid using culturally unsuitable names and slogans or making other embarrassing mistakes.

 

Why Is Marketing Translation and Localisation Important?

In a globalised world, many companies compete internationally and have to adapt their content to the different markets, countries, and cultures in which they operate.

When it comes to marketing content, today’s international businesses need to ensure that local audiences notice and engage with their brands, ultimately establishing long-term relationships.

 

This situation means that literal, word-for-word translation—however technically accurate it may be—may not always be the right approach. Instead, you need to truly understand the culture of a country, region, or area: the idioms, connotations, and taboos that only native speakers will pick up.

 

Goodman Lantern’s marketing translation and localisation services will ensure your brand speaks the same language as your target audience. Partner with us, and your messages will be impactful, culturally sensitive, and on-brand in all the regions, languages, and cultures you target.

Our Marketing Localisation Solutions

Localisation and transcreation take your marketing content beyond the scope of translation, adapting your content to the social and cultural context where it’ll reach your target audience. 

 

A good translation will render an accurate version of your content in the target language. But localisation and transcreation will ensure the translated words and sentences are suited to the local culture in terms of tone, voice, and other nuances that outsiders often miss.

 

Localisation also applies to design. For example, some languages tend to have longer words than others. As a result, some design elements may have to be reformatted to fit the translated words.

Marketing Materials Localisation

Your marketing materials should be a perfect match for the local context: date and time formats, currencies, references, weights and measurements, and naming conventions can all differ in different countries.

 

Multilingual SEO

Using the right SEO keywords in different territories isn’t just translating the original English keywords. Instead, our SEO team will help you find keywords and strategies that work best in each country, region, and culture you’re targeting.

Industries We Serve

Banking, Finance & Insurance

The financial industries operate under particular and stringent regulatory requirements and offer highly abstract products that can be hard for their customers to understand.

 

When translating their marketing materials for a different country or language, it’s imperative to ensure that they remain compliant, clear, and suited to their new context.

 

At Goodman Lantern, we translate and localise brochures, presentations, advertisements and other materials for banks, insurance companies, venture capital funds, fund managers, and other financial operators. We’ll ensure your services are clear and appealing in every market you operate.

Marketing & Advertising

A big part of your marketing and advertising efforts revolve around branding. Product, price, place, and promotion are the key factors to keep in mind if you want your brand to work in a market with a specific target audience. Accurately conveying your message could determine whether your product or service stands or falls. Accuracy, clarity, and impact matter in all the marketing and advertising material you create

 

Maintain the value of your brand in every market, engaging with your target audiences by speaking the same language as them. We’ll adapt your content to the local social and cultural context, aligning your material with your customers’ and stakeholders’ needs and making your communication impactful.

Legal

Law firms are increasingly internationalised, working across borders, in different countries and jurisdictions. This means that lawyers need to be knowledgeable about the various legislations and that the way they offer their services should be adapted to each specific legal and cultural context. 

 

Our team of qualified translators and linguists are experienced in legal translation and will preserve all the nuances of your documents and materials.

 

We’ll also make sure that the tone and voice of your legal marketing materials are suited to the local context and culture, being mindful of the specificities and conventions.
