How it works

In order to achieve our clients’ aims, greatcontent puts both traditional translation services and innovative transcreation services at your disposal.

Translation is the literal transformation of a text from a source to a target language, used for rather static and more factual content. Transcreation, however, involves using a source-text as a touchstone to create a new, more culturally and linguistically appropriate text that resembles the original, but is adapted for the target audience and is a recommended option for marketing texts.

How Can 'Transcreation' Benefit Me?

Your business or website may require translation services from time to time, that is, the literal translation of a text word-for-word. However, if content has been written for a particular audience in a particular language, will the message resonate with a new audience?

There are many subtle language variations regionally and internationally, and some sentiments just don't translate well. Transcreation, as opposed to just pure translation, uses a writer's knowledge of their native language to adapt a text for an audience they know well. Allowing a writer some creative licence means they can tailor a text perfectly to its newly intended audience.

This element of freedom in transcreation also lets the personality of the writer as well as the underlying message of the content shine through, rather than being diluted by words and phrases that may have no meaning or resonance in a new language.

It may seem like a risk to let a writer interpret your text rather than translate it word for word like a traditional translation service, but it's far from it. The most important thing about content is the message. By giving the writer less shackles when it comes to exact creation, they can focus more time and energy on the focus of your piece. Pure translation definitely has its place but transcreation is great value compared to conventional translation prices, plus it's fast way to get quality content written for a new language audience.
