What we do! Leave a reply

Spring has sprung!

At least according to the calendar it has.

Spring brings out the best of us. With the extra sunshine and warmer days, we all feel just that little bit better.

We also become more creative in Spring. Whether it be at home renovating, or in the garage getting the „fun car“ ready for Summer. At work, Marketing Departments worldwide also use Spring to get their teams brainstorming for the 12-18 months ahead.

International companies often devise a campaign to be used worldwide. This not only keeps costs down, but it also keeps the company´s branding and imaging streamlined.

What  these companies need to ensure is that cultural marketing be applied when using these campaigns across the globe. What might be exciting for clients in the USA, could prove offensive for clients in say, China.

That is why our linguistic teams at Qordoba don´t just translate – they evaluate. Telling your story.  

Sometimes an interpretation is more suitable than a direct translation. However sometimes, minor changes in the marketing idea might be needed to make it acceptable in the target country.

At Qordoba, we use linguists who live in the target country to work on these projects. That way, your idea, gist and company goals don´t get lost in translation.

For more information about how this might apply to your company, contact your consultant or send an enquiry via this site.

It pays to pay…

I am sure many of you have seen some funny translations on your travels. Normally they have been done by „someone“ internally.

On the picture below however, are 7 stories of how multi-nationals have also had their own issues with questionable translations.

A translation is not just a translation.

Which is why we believe it is important to make sure that we use professional linguists who not only speak your target language, but also live in the target country of where your product is to be marketed. This ensures that cultural differences are also being localized.

Have a look at the cases below and remember: it pays to pay for good translations!

Friday Funnies…

The general conception about German, is that it is an aggressive and harsh sounding language. Here is an example of the saying “I love you” in various languages… yes, in this case, the Germans sound a bit, hmmmm, shall we say angry… Enjoy!

Announcing the opening of our European headquarters!

This step also improves our understanding of European markets and cultures, which in turn benefits the quality of our products and services.

If you wish to contact the European office, please call +49 (0)69 509 56 5629. Our office is situated in the Messeturm building in Frankfurt’s business district. Stay tuned for our German-language Twitter and LinkedIn pages!
