February 14th, better known as Valentine’s Day, has become an industry valued at almost $20 billion. Across the world, couples and friends exchange gifts as a sign of affection for each other. Because of this, Valentine’s day is one of the biggest days of the year for many companies across the globe. Companies that operate internationally, such as Hallmark Cards, require professional business translation in more than 30 languages for their cards that are sold worldwide in more than 100 countries. Professional business translation services are a must for these international companies. Read on to learn about a few of them.
Professional Business Translation Services for Baci Perugina
Baci Perugina is an Italian company founded in 1922 in Perugia, Italy by Luisa Spagnoli and her husband Giovanni Buitoni. Their products are small, chocolate covered hazelnuts which are wrapped in notes that display a romantic quote translated into four different languages by professional business translation services. The languages these quotes are translated in can vary from: Italian, English, French, German, Greek, Spanish, Portuguese, and Chinese. It is believed that the multilingual note tradition originated from Luisa and Giovanni, who exchanged hidden love messages through chocolates while being clandestine lovers.
In 1991, the multinational company Nestle bought Perugina. 100 years later, Baci Perugina is one of the most famous chocolates in Italy and the most gifted brand during Valentine’s Day. With the help of global business translation services, the brand is now able to sell worldwide and introduces love messages in new languages every year. Now, people in Brazil and China can celebrate their love while exchanging love messages wrapped around a bacio or “kiss.”

Professional business translation services also help companies such as Mars translate messages written on personalized M&M’s, one of Mars’s products, into any language the consumer wants. Language Service Companies are also big on the flower industry. According to an article by Pro Flowers, in 2010, an estimated 198 million roses were produced for Valentine’s Day. Most of them include a card with a message, which can be translated to any language necessary.
Website translation services are also popular on Valentine’s Day as they provide companies that sell their products internationally with exceptional translations to better suit international customers’ needs.
