Have you ever wondered how certain products become mainstream in other countries who don’t even speak the language the products were exported from? The answer is label translations. Thanks to the great work of business translation services, companies can import and export products across the world in compliance with relevant regulations. Let’s take a closer look:
Label Translations For U.S. Exporters
According to the Bureau of Economic Analysis, the United States currently ranks as the world’s second largest exporting country (right behind China) with an annual total revenue of $2.1 trillion in 2022. Industrial supplies and automotive vehicles from the United States fall within the top five most popular products for international buyers. The top five largest countries to which the U.S. exports these products are, in order, Canada, Mexico, China, Japan, and the United Kingdom.
However, as the world still attempts to recover from the global COVID-19 pandemic and return to normal pre-pandemic trading numbers, the demand for American-made products has increased. Experts predict that U.S. products will be in great demand going forward and will be exported to a wider range of countries for the 2024 fiscal year. This will encourage a wide range of linguistic strategies to be used, including translation services and localization services to keep up with both regulations and global markets.
Who Regulates Label Translations?
For American businesses wishing to export their goods and services to other countries, there are approximately five separate government entities that companies must comply with to maintain legal exporting status within the U.S. One of the most important agencies to take note of is the International Trade Administration (ITA), an agency within the Department of Commerce that ensures adequate language access to potential buyers by regulating label translations. The ITA requires that both cautionary markings and ingredients be provided in English as well as the buyer country’s predominate language, which can be found under it’s “Basic Guide to Exporting.”
