LOCALISATION SERVICES

Localisation services at Dialogue

Localisation attracts and captivates more clients in new international markets through pitch-perfect content that speaks to your audience.
Trust Dialogue’s native-speaking translators to provide you with an accurate translation of the source material, and improve on it by making idioms, names and local references culturally relevant and appropriate for the target audience.

Go Global by Staying Local

Word-for-word translation isn’t always enough. As a global player, your success lies in your brand appealing equally to consumers in many diverse countries. Consumers will enjoy, trust, and remember your brand when your localised content is culturally relevant to them.

Localisation might involve adapting the tone of an advert to become culturally appropriate; changing a name to one your audience has heard of; converting numbers to the correct currency and measurements; or even modifying a scenario to fit in with local customs and laws.

Localisation FAQs

Localisation provides an accurate translation into the target language but changes idioms, names, register or local references to make them culturally relevant and appropriate for the target audience. The translation is therefore not word-for-word throughout, but it ensures that it is fit for purpose, both for the audience and their culture.

While localisation adapts certain parts of a translation, transcreation changes the source text completely, writing for a different target audience with much more creative freedom. Localisation keeps to the original text but changes the currency and metrics and finds equivalent names, idioms and cultural references in a text or video in that target language.

You can use localisation services for any content that you wish to publish abroad that has culturally specific terms and references that need to be understood by clients in any given market. It helps prospects to relate to your marketing materials or easily navigate your website pages and, in turn, makes them more likely to trust your company and buy from you.
