Online translation agencies: why you can’t do without them
In the international expansion of new markets and businesses, the development of a good communication strategy is essential in order to operate successfully outside the domestic market. In fact, there are many important criteria to consider depending on the target country as well as the culture and habits of the different population groups. Below you can read why you should make use of the services offered by Smylingua in order to be successful abroad.
Steps to success
To successfully promote your international expansion, it is best to entrust Smylingua with your translation work. Our team is responsible for developing a good communication strategy. For this purpose, 4 steps must be followed:
Analysis of the communication objectives
For international communication it is advantageous to use message standardization. This can save you a considerable amount of time. If necessary, the translation experts at Smylingua will correct the content of the translated files. They will take care to adapt them to the cultural specifics of the target country. It is essential to adapt the messages to the market situation, especially if the market is in its start-up phase.
Analyse target market
When standardizing messages (in flyers and brochures, for posts on social networks or others) or information to be presented on your website, many criteria must be considered:
- The different generations addressed (age differences must be considered)
- Income according to the age range of the target groups
- Cultural differences
The right way to transmit messages
The right marketing strategy is not always easy to choose. It can therefore be advantageous to trust experts who know the sales market perfectly. These experts know the legal framework in the country concerned and are therefore very familiar with, for example, sworn translations or legal translations. In addition, the translation experts consider the preferences of the target audience and the availability of the various approved means of communication. Indeed, in some countries, certain means of communication are prohibited by law. For example, television advertising is prohibited for sales groups.
Choosing the right communication method
This step mainly concerns the design of the messages. Whether for flyers and brochures or for commercials, the decisive factor is the targeted adaptation of the communication strategy to the culture of the target country. The translation experts at Smylingua pay close attention to your translations, so they make sure that the communication style is studied in detail to find the most appropriate advertising style for your company.
