Transcreation is often used in translating videos, advertisements, and movies to ensure that the content resonates with the target audience in the new language and culture. Here are some ways that transcreation is used in translating these types of multimedia content:
Transcreation is frequently used in advertising to adapt slogans, taglines, and other key messaging to the local market. This may involve changing the wording or imagery of the ad, or developing entirely new concepts that better resonate with the target audience. Transcreation can help ensure that the ad is not only translated accurately but also culturally-relevant and effective in driving engagement and sales.
Movies and TV shows
When translating movies and TV shows, transcreation is often used to adapt jokes, idioms, and cultural references that may not make sense to the target audience. The transcreator may also adjust the timing and pacing of the dialogue to match the original intent better and ensure a seamless viewing experience.
In corporate or educational settings, transcreation can be used to adapt training videos to different languages and cultures. This may involve translating the content and developing new examples, scenarios, and visuals that are more relevant to the target audience.
