What all is Covered under Consumer Product Translations?
At the outset, it is important to understand that consumer product translations are limited to only the products sold through retail stores, or so. Besides the retail industry, consumer translations involve translations for the food and beverage industry, restaurants, media and entertainment as the content published in this industry as well reaches a large and diverse consumer base. Besides, consumer translations also involve translations for the tourism industry, which are again, accessed by consumers, termed as tourists here, on a large, and in fact, a global scale. Covering these many industries, all of which are global and superlatively large, subsequently increases the scope of translations. As a matter of fact, consumer translations are among the most challenging ones, as they are translated from the viewpoint of the consumer who’s going to access the content, and who could be hailing from a different region, culture, thought-process, language, etc.
So, considering the scope of consumer product translations, this particular area includes working out translations for a wide range of documents including advertisements, both web as well as for print media, brochures, catalogues, video subtitling, video translations, interpretation services, marketing campaigns, user directions, product details and vital information, and many others.
Consumer Product Translation Challenges
Given that consumer products involve many large industries, and with each on it having its own implications when it comes to translations, consumer product translations would never be simple and straight-forward. They need to be informative, but at the same appealing enough for the consumers to buy the product. Here are some common consumer product translation challenges faced by translators.
1. Cultural and Linguistic Challenges
As a translator translating for consumer products, you’ve got to be extremely careful. Remember, your words are directly reaching the consumers, and therefore, it is imperative that you translate content in a culturally and regionally sensible manner. Your translation may be grammatically correct, but if that’s contributing to discomfort within the natives, in the first place, it would not be accepted by them, let alone creating the translation creating a positive impact in the market.
2. The Range of Documents used in Every Industry
Regardless of whether it is the retail industry, or the tourism, for that matter, the food and beverage one, there are a large number of consumer-specific documents used in each one of them. These documents are fundamentally different from each other and also vary on the criticality front. For instance, administrative or legal documents require a different translation tone, as they directly deal with agreements, contracts, and alike.
These documents may not be directly concerned with the consumers, nevertheless, they exist. On the other hand, translating marketing campaigns, promotional content, etc. would be more consumer-specific, aimed at drawing people towards the product, and wherein, perhaps, if at all required, the translator might give grammar a secondary preference. Translators must be aware of these differences so as to contribute the desired impact based on the document translated and the context of the translation.
3. Technical Terms
Different industries use different terminologies. The tourism industry would have its own terminologies, the retail would use its own, and so would the food industry. As a translator working on consumer translations, it is necessary to be aware of the commonly used terms and terminologies from the consumer’s viewpoint. Improper or incomplete usage of the respective terms would have the translation appear amateurish, thereby failing to convey information in the right manner to the consumers.
