There are some ideas and concepts that are difficult to convert to another language – for example because of cultural differences or the uniqueness of a particular language’s structure.
In these situations you need to go beyond translation. Blackbird can help with a service called transcreation.
Transcreation is the process of dismantling the ideas in a text in one language and rebuilding them in another – while still evoking the same emotions and carrying the same implications.
A translator starts with the original text and takes a free approach to adapting the message into the target language. Whole concepts might have to be described in a different way. Phrases and sentences might be re-ordered or deleted entirely.
A successfully transcreated message will stay true to the intent, style, tone and context of the original.
Blackbird can help when you need to make an impression in any language, including your own – for example if you’re writing for your new website or a sales brochure and you really want the text to shine.
We recommend our copywriting service when you need to create a message with maximum impact and style.
It starts with a briefing from you about the message you want to convey. Then our professionals – copywriters and native speakers of your chosen language – work together to craft the text with your oversight and input.
