29 Mar The Importance of Brand Localization
To create a successful international brand, translation and localization are key to your global strategy. Localization is the process of adapting a message or a product to a particular place through translation and transcreation. Marketing your brand is key to success in growing your business internationally. Not adapting your product or message to your target market can negatively affect your brand, even if you have a great product. So, here are a few tips to take into consideration when localizing your brand across new markets:
Translate your product name into the target language. Hire a professional translator to be sure that your brand name can easily be pronounced and makes sense in your target market’s language. Professional translators will ensure that there are no negative connotations with your brand name.
Keep the colors of your brand as consistent to the original as possible. This is an important part of marketing localization that is often overlooked. Every country has different cultural meanings attached to different words, colors and concepts.
Double check there are not other brands or products with the same name. Due to patents, it is important to be sure that the name of the product is not already taken.
