Translation

Get your documents translated,

swiftly, and with precision.

In our globalised world where ideas and information needs to cross borders post-haste, translations of documents, articles and website content are becoming ever more sought after. As people and institutions want to share knowledge, and companies look to expand into foreign territories, translators bridge the gap between original meaning and final understanding.

These services should be performed with efficiency, accuracy and pragmatism, but also with respect for the essential meaning in the source text; which should not be lost on the end-reader. Linguistic talent, knowledge of both local cultures and last but not least emotional intelligence are all vital components for delivery of high quality translations.

Which subject matter do you need translated?

Subtitling

High quality subtitles are effortless to read,

without getting in the way.

Whether your video is made for broadcasting, streaming or simply embedding onto your website, you want the things that are said to be effortlessly understood without taking focus away from the video itself.

The art of creating subtitles is, contrary to popular belief, a fine one. Making sure puns don't flop, fitting a rapidly spoken line into a two-second clip, making executive decisions on whether to explain local knowledge literally (at the expense of elegance and ease) – is no easy feat and requires professional expertise.

As well as linguistic artistry, the subtitling process calls for plain and simple hard work in the form of using complicated software to transcribe and create time-codes for the captions.

Localisation

By localising your content,

you make sure nothing is lost in translation.

A localisation service is different to a translation service in that it is closer to transcreation, the creative art of taking a message and wrapping it up in a culture other than the one it was originally created for.

When companies decide to offer their products and services in another country, they need to account for the differences in culture, history, politics and world views. Expectations are different, and everything down to the tone of voice can make or break the reception of a message.

A new and miraculously efficient mop is something we're all interested in, however, in Norway an advert directed solely at female homemakers will most likely not go down a storm. A new approach to communicating the same essential message is key.

What kind of content do you need localised?

Copywriting

Build on your localisation

with content created for the local culture.

The copywriting service builds on localisation, and takes it further. Content is king and while it's all well and good to localise what you already have, it's always prudent to get some tailor-made material added on when approaching a new market.

Research and strategic thinking gives a good foundation, whilst a bit of literary flair coupled with idiomatic expressions complete the process. This leaves you with solid content which will strike a chord with the locals.

Whether you need copy for your adverts, social media posts, website, app or brochures – I can take your brand and introduce it to the Norwegian audience through a funnel of local knowledge.
