Translation of Video Scripts for the World’s Number One Online Retailer
Boston, MA – Language Connections, a Boston translation and interpreting services company, has years of experience translating marketing campaigns for companies that need assistance making their materials effective in speaking to consumers and clients all over the world. One of our clients is a local multimedia recording studio that we’ve worked with for years. Recently, they came to us with a script for a video they needed to record in a few languages for a big client: the world’s number one Internet retailer.
Translation into German, French, Spanish, Italian and Japanese
The client asked us to supply translation services for a video script and text that would be shown on the video into five languages: German, French, Spanish, Italian, and Japanese.
When translating the script, there were a few important goals. Firstly, the translations needed to be elegantly localized so they felt organic to the culture of these languages. The second goal was to ensure that any proprietary names were translated per the Internet retailer’s protocols. This isn’t always obvious. Some companies will keep proprietary names in a source language. Some will translate. And some will translate to a phrase or name. This means any future translations including that proprietary name must be done in a consistent manner. Otherwise, consumers might encounter mention of a feature on this retailer’s website that they can’t find! This kind of sloppy translation would be endlessly frustrating to consumers and to the Internet retailer we were doing the work for.
Language Connections was able to quickly and accurately translate the video script and text within all five languages on time. The recording company had the ability to make their video for the Internet retailer with no linguistic issues, focusing instead on the job they were hired for: creating a great video for their client.
