Marketing internationally has become a step that no company can avoid. When the home market reaches its limit, the option to go international provides a whole new perspective.
But global branding and marketing is not just a matter of translating. It has more to do with adapting the message to the target audience while retaining global branding.
To take an example, TV advertising sometimes uses the same Ad worldwide with a local voice-over, but sometimes changes completely including product names. Yes, they sound similar, and they look the same, but they actually sell.
This is what needs to be achieved with Marketing Localization. The translation effort includes research and a spice of creativity.
