Quality Translations for your Global Business Needs

Translations can be a very stressful process at first. You don't know much about the industry, processes and what's involved. And what's worse, you will receive a file written in a language that you don't understand. How can you know whether your provider has done a good job?

So much can go wrong. Poor translations can lead to confusion or being seen as culturally inappropriate. In both cases there is potential to lose your prospects' trust. No trust means no engagement and therefore no sale. Would you risk it?

    Case study: How Cultural Adaptation
    Works in Translation Projects

    Translation is not just about language. Culture plays an important role in how effective content can be. As such, cultural adaptation is a key component of our quality-driven translation process. Here is how that can look like:

    A peak cancer organisation in Australia engaged Sylaba Translations in the translation into 9 languages of a set of fact sheets. The purpose of the translations was to inform Australian migrants, refugees and asylum seekers of basic information about cancer and cancer prevention.

    In our initial scoping session we identified the risk of certain concepts being culturally sensitive. For the translations to be effective, we knew that we needed to mitigate these risks by adapting the message to the beliefs of each cultural group.

    To do this, we ran community consultations prior to translation to:

    understand the barriers that different communities have when it comes to cancer prevention.

    address those barriers and produce information that speaks to each audience.

    This is some of what came out of the consultations:

    Some Arabic and Indian communities believe cancer is contagious.

    Some minorities in the Greek community believe cancer is incurable.

    To convey our key messages effectively (that cancer might be prevented by doing X, Y and Z), we adapted the message to address the misconceptions of each community. This meant adapting one paragraph of a 5-page fact sheet for each community to address the misconception that cancer is contagious:

    Can you catch cancer from someone else? No. Cancer is not contagious. People can’t catch it from someone who has it. It is safe to be near someone who has skin cancer or any other type of cancer.

    Because this statement only applied to the Arabic and Indian communities, we only included it in the Arabic and Hindi translations.

    Cultural adaptation at work!
