When to use translation vs. transcreation

Translation is a process that converts text from one language to another. It’s the literal transfer of meaning from one language to another, while keeping the original text in mind as much as possible. Technical accuracy is more of a priority in simple translation.

Transcreation, though, is a more creative process that requires deeper knowledge of the cultural context for both texts. It’s a re-creation of the source text that takes the target audience’s beliefs, cultural values, and preferences into account. Transcreation is an approach that communicates the same message in a relevant way to the target audience.

When tone, style, and emotion matter

Preserving the original meaning of your content and conveying it in the right tone and emotion to your target audience can make all the difference. Transcreation carefully navigates a region’s verbal and non-verbal forms of communication to follow its beliefs and ideas while avoiding taboo topics or statements.

Transcreation is also essential to finding and building on brand words in another language. With consistency, these help establish credibility and create trust with your intended audience. It helps the reader understand the message as if it was their own.
