What is Transcreation?
To put it simply, transcreation is creating new marketing content in a foreign language. Transcreated content is based on the source language content, but customized to fit the culture, slang and idiom of your target audience. Unlike technical copy, it is not enough to simply translate the text—the content itself must be re-written so that it resonates with local consumers and ‘speaks their language.’
