Fed up with your message being lost in translation?
Text translation isn’t just about converting words into another language (although that’s nice).
Translation is about:
- Choosing the right words that spotlight your business;
- Connecting with your Dutch audience emotionally;
- Delivering your message in a culturally appropriate way; and
- Keeping a consistent voice across your brand.
So how do I tackle translations?
I want people to understand you, and understand you in the right way. So I’ll do a bunch of research before I start, so I can really get to grips with your industry, your audience and your brand.
Then I’ll come up with a creative translation, making your texts sound fresh and compelling while maintaining your original style. Crisp, clear and natural-flowing, your documents will be a pleasure to read—particularly relevant for marketing and PR texts that are intended to convince, entertain and inspire people. For legal and technical texts where precision is essential, I take a more literal approach, sticking closely to the wording of the source text.
And yes, I will make sure your product names don’t sound duff in Dutch!
I work with everyone from start-ups to big translation agencies. So whether you need 10 words or 20,000 words, I can help.
