What is translation?
Translation is the written transfer of text from one language to another. It requires not only an excellent grasp of terminology and linguistic knowledge in two or more languages, but also solid cross-cultural knowledge to convey true meaning.
Translation of marketing and communication materials in particular requires excellent writing skills and creativity, as well as an ability to convey the original tone while understanding cultural differences.
As Nelson Mandela so eloquently said,
“If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language that goes to his heart”.
