Marketing Translation

Marketing for any culture in the world is about persuasion. In the most basic terms, this means that when you’re translating marketing texts from English to Swahili, you are not translating words, you’re translating concepts. Concepts that convey your product’s brand, yet resonate within another culture.

Various Types of Marketing Materials

Marketing texts aim to meet the customer at the exact point of their need or desire. Therefore, many subtleties are involved with marketing translation. Humor, idioms, slang, cultural references – these are often replaced with new creations inspired by the original, rather than just literal “translations”. Marketing translations that advance your brand globally can have a vastly different feel than the originals, while maintaining your core brand identity.
