Challenges of Automobile Industry Translations | Automobile Industry Translation Challenges
Specifically, or in the context of every market and automobile company, there would be many challenges. Nevertheless, the two most common translation challenges are that of catering to the large supply and manufacturing chain preceded by the output that reaches the automobile showroom, and also that of searching and hiring expert automobile translators. Automobile translations cannot be confined to customer brochures, or the core marketing collateral, or for that matter, translating documents for training and administration purpose, but must be extended to the companies associated with the automobile industry in some or the other way, or form an element of the automobile supply chain. Dealing with such a huge and specific requirement is certainly operationally a challenging task, let alone the regional or local implications that follow.
Besides, before hiring a professional and expert local language translator, it is important to realize that the automobile industry or the text involved would include several technical terms. Searching for the appropriate corresponding word in the local language, or to be able to make a decision to use the word as it is, based on the local language expertise, it is necessary that you have a translator who is a native language expert, but at the same time, understands automobile terms, and is able to put them across in the locally correct manner. In short, you need a language expert translator or an interpreter, as well as an automobile technical expert to help make the translation effective and relevant.
Why do Automobile Companies or the Automotive Sector Require Translations?
As they say, an example is better than precept, so let us consider the example of an automobile company predominantly operating in the English speaking countries, however, intends to expand in the non-English speaking market, or a market as large as India, which is home to several other locally strong and distinct markets. Now, although English is spoken and understood in most of the Indian markets, it doesn’t work everywhere. Of course, it isn’t that the local population doesn’t understand English, but yet prefer reading and responding to the text in own language, rather than dealing with the same content in English. This is where translations come into the picture!
The automobile industry deals with a wide range of online as well as offline documents, registrations, etc. the standard language for all of which is English, however, only in the metropolitan regions. In the interiors of the market, or say the rural regions of the country, the documents are still typed, printed and responded in the local language. Here, an automobile company that pro-actively has the documents, forms, approval requests, catalogs, training material, etc. printed in the local language would serve the local consumers in a better way, thus paving the way for a more personalized customer service, and eventually, resulting in increased sales, and brand loyalty in the long run. Besides, localization also augments the existing training process, thus contributing to human resource skill development, coupled up with a considerable help in the other departments such as sales, marketing when it comes to targeting the interior, but potentially large and promising zones of a particular region.
Besides, there are several technical documents that, when translated lead to a better comprehension of the message, thus also simplifying and expediting communication between the parties involved. Automobile translations aren’t limited to training and technical documents, but also extend to translating marketing collaterals such as brochures, flyers, advertisements meant to attract the local consumer base, etc. And, of course, we cannot forget the onboard digital systems, the modern dimension to the modern age automobile industry. Consumers love it when they are greeted and see the information displayed on the digital screen in their mother-tongue, or the native language spoken in the region. Now, that’s truly taking the automobile industry to the next level of personalized customer services, which is, however, possible only through locally relevant and accurate translations.
What Role does Localization Play in the Automobile Industry?
Despite being one of the largest industries across the world, the automobile industry isn’t an exception to the translation and the localization wave. This is because automobile companies too are willing to move away from the saturated metropolitan markets, to explore and move towards tier 2, tier 3, the interior and the smaller regions of every market. Another reason why localization and translations are important for the automobile industry is the range of vehicles manufactured. Here, categorically, every vehicle type, right from trucks, cars, MUVs, SUVs, and so on would have a distinct translation strategy in place. For instance, trucks that majorly sold in the outskirts of a particular city/ town would have a different translation strategy from that of the smaller vehicle range.
Here, besides customizing the product, locally correct translations are the automobile company’s passport to penetrate the targeted markets, and thus create an encouraging and sales-healthy business environment that would help increase sales, and also deliver a personalized and more effective customer service. However, besides sales, there are many other reasons why translations play an important role in the automobile industry. We will be looking at those reasons as we proceed, and also explore the significant role played by Filose in helping automobile companies with culturally and locally relevant and appropriate translations.
