Why is professionally translating social media content important?

At BigTranslation, we are experts in web content and one area of companies’ marketing strategies which is ever more important is social media. Making your presence known on social media is now an effective (and indispensable) way to reach your target markets and increase brand recognition.

Social media is advantageous for companies in many different ways, not least of which is the fact that you are able to communicate, engage and connect with your audience in a way that is usually not possible though corporate websites. It also helps you to improve search engine rankings, increase inbound traffic and gives your brand more authority.

This means that, if you sell your products or services in different international markets, you cannot overlook the importance of having your publications accurately and effectively translated by a professional translation agency like BigTranslation.

It is very easy to assume that a shorter text like a Facebook post or tweet can be improvised by someone in your office with a decent level in that language or by relying on tools like Google Translate. Nothing could be further from the truth! Remember, the whole point of social media is that it is easily and frequently accessed by a large and diverse public. Don’t harm your reputation for the sake of 125 characters!

How to produce and translate effective social media content.

Translation is also something that you need to bear in mind from the very start of the process when creating your marketing content. The success and effectiveness of the social media translation, inevitably, depends heavily on the quality of the original text. For social networks, the key to success is to keep it simple yet effective. Say what you want to say in as simple a way as possible – get straight to the point and aim to catch your readers attention.

However, equally as important is the work of the translator. When it comes to social networks, localisation is of vital importance! Publications need to take into account the current political and social climates of each target market, as well as important local events and the social habits of your intended public. This is why it is essential to work with professional native translators with the necessary cultural knowledge. But, even more than this, you need to define your market well and work with translators that know and understand your specific sector and target markets.

Native professional translation is important.

At BigTranslation, we work with qualified native translators from all around the globe and with different backgrounds and areas of expertise, so you will always find the perfect linguist for your social media translations. Have your social media content professionally translated and see the difference for yourselves!

Why Translate into Different European Languages to Enter into the Global Market?

In the global business market, the most important thing to bear in mind is that a wide variety of cultures exist. The borders that separate each culture are very often hard to overcome, and it is here that the native translator comes in.

Different European languages for different markets.

In the global business market, the most important thing to bear in mind is that a wide variety of cultures exist. The borders that separate each culture are very often hard to overcome, and it is here that the native translator comes in. We specify native because no translator, regardless of how good they may be, will ever fully understand the traditions and customs that make up the fabric of a culture that is not their own.

A translator’s objective is to allow a message to be passed from one language to another, between different cultures and different ways of thinking, via a translation which is as close as possible to the customs of a given country. This is also a translator’s task, to pass a message from one side to another, allowing a product which is being launched internationally to cross cultural borders and reach the intended public so that it can be marketed. Without translation into different European languages, everything produced in one market would stay within that market, in a kind of closed circuit, sacrificing the value of the worldwide market and the growth and internationalisation of the business.

European languages and translations to fit your customers’ needs.

As outlined above, translation will make your business grow. In the global market, variety and differences are all around. Culture is defined as the collection of material and intellectual characteristics belonging to a society or cultural group which shares a common set of values, beliefs and traditions. We must make the global market adopt each of these principles, so that every product can reach every market without the need for a lingua franca like English. This is done by carrying out translations in numerous different target European languages according to the chosen markets.

For this reason, texts must be translated into various different European languages, according to the markets that you want to ‘conquer’. It will open up the dissemination of products, for example, much more effectively compared to the results obtained by only translating into one language, even if that language is an international ‘bridging’ language, such as English. Without a doubt, translating into English is fundamental because, as mentioned, it is a language of cultural and business connection. However, translating into the language of the target market you have chosen to expand into, that is the key to success! What better way to reach your customer than through their own language? When translated by professional natives, who capture the essence of what is being communicated, everything you want to say will cross any borders.

Do You Want to Sell Internationally?

Whatever business you are in, from financial services to dropshipping shops, catering to retail, you may well be able to list your services or products in English. But, how about if you had these same services or products listed in Swedish, Polish, Latvian, Russian, Portuguese or Hungarian to name but a few?

To correctly create a link, highlight the word (or word string) that requires the link in your target text. Right click on the word(s) and select Insert link.

A dialogue box will appear. You then need to ensure that the correct code appears in the URL code field (our system uses codes rather than web addresses for link URLs). No other text or numbers should appear in the URL box other than the code.

The following are the correct codes for the corresponding words in EN, you will need to use them accordingly in your translation.

In the Target, you should see the word None.

Links

IMPORTANT NOTE:

When a product website address is included in the text, the link can be copied and pasted from the source text. Once you have done this, you will still need to right click and select Insert link. You should then check that the URL code and Text to display both show the website address. Importantly, for this type of link you will need to set the Target to New Window in the drop down menu.
