Localization of commercials and advertisements


Localization of commercials and advertisements

The skill of localization of commercials and advertisements is a good source of income because companies all over the world depend on presenting their products to the public. The better the product is presented to each target audience, the better it will sell. Inappropriate localization, i.e. poor translation and adaptation of the source content may be detrimental to the product visibility and appeal as well as the reputation of the company. Acquiring the skill of creative and appropriate localization will ensure more work in a highly competitive business thus improving the translator's position on the market.

Localization depends on the skill of understanding commercials and advertisements, i.e. the source content as well as the correct cultural representation of such content to a target audience so that the projected audience response to the localized content will be as expected.

This webinar is focusing on these two aspects of localization so that one part of the webinar will include work on the strategies needed in the process of analysis whereas the other part of the webinar will be directed at illustrating how to successfully localize content presented in commercials and advertisements.

The analysis strategies are an important aspect of the localization process because not all content presented in commercials and advertisements is immediately appropriate to be localized. Some content might be inappropriate due to cultural issues including politics, religion, tradition, etc. In such cases, a commercial or advertisement will have to be adapted at several levels, the semantic one being the least of the problems. The first part of the webinar will deal with the strategies that support the analysis of content to be localized.

The actual localization of the content which includes steps, such as adaptation and transcreation will be dealt with in the second part of the webinar. The difference between localization as a strategy, translation and transcreation as processes and adaptation as a technique will be dealt with in more details and illustrated by relevant examples.
