Proof read & edit your translation
Proof reading and editing translations from across the world, in order to market websites and other content to English native speaking countries isn’t easy, just have quick look at ‘what we mean’?
The world is a big place and there are millions of businesses looking to trade internationally. There are some superb companies out there all trying to capture clients from afar and the easiest way to cross international boundaries is to market your website abroad, especially native English speaking countries.
Unfortunately no matter how good your product is or how much cheaper you are able to manufacture it abroad, it is difficult to write convincing marketing content in native English effectively, whilst paying special attention to subtle quirks in the English language. Make sure you proof read & edit your translation effectively.
Now we expect you have had your website translated and are happy with the result, at least now we can understand what you are trying to market but you have to be so careful.
The following mistakes can ruin your credibility and convince a web visitor that you may not have the attention to detail they expected. It can damage the perception of your professionalism and cause your visitor to leave your website with the wrong impression if you don’t proof read & edit your translation
- Poor, clunky diction
- Spelling mistakes
- Words in the wrong order
- Sentences that make sense but a constructed poorly
- Poor use of punctuation
Real Marketing Example
For example, this passage from the ‘Why Us?’ section on a Chinese supplier portal should illustrate what we mean.
‘In internet age,it is quyte easy to find toys supplier,find new toys items like in Alibaba.com,Global sorce,but still not easy or need a lots of time to distinguish goods supplier and search exact match toys item.without face to face deal,have more risk than before.’
Unfortunately whilst this site looks like they are a worthy supplier, and indeed they may well be the best agency out there, a lot of web visitors will probably be on the move pretty quickly, it destroys all of your hard won credibility when you don’t proof read & edit your translation properly.
We would recommend the following edit in order to make a better impression to English native speakers.
‘In the age of e-commerce and global internet marketing, it’s really easy to find thousands of international suppliers.
You’ve got a huge choice on Alibaba or Global Source, but how do you distinguish between them all?
Who are the best suppliers to match your specific requirements and how do you navigate the minefields of international trade, without visiting these suppliers and negotiating the best deals ‘face to face’.
Leave this task to us, it will save you time, money and stress.’
