If You Want to be Global, You Need to be Local

The fact that we live in a global era does not mean that the world is becoming more culturally homogeneous. Quite the contrary, since the Internet can take you to the ends of the earth, but you cannot benefit from this unless you can communicate in the local language. Speaking to consumers in their own language has become an important selling point, and often gives companies a major edge over their competitors.

Thus, as globalisation strategies are imposed, translation needs increase. Multinational corporations are not the only companies requiring more of these services. Due to the changes the Internet has brought about in marketing and sales, even small companies are becoming global, further increasing demand for good translators, which are a scarce resource.

Everyone knows that pharmaceutical laboratories are major users of translators, since they devote a large portion of their budgets to internationalisation. In addition to the translation of traditional documentation (marketing authorisations, training manuals, sales and marketing materials, product packaging, articles for medical and scientific journals and so on), they now have new needs (websites and medical portals for the Internet) and new media (multimedia materials, presentations and databases). This has not only increased the volume of work to be translated, but also the diversity and difficulty of the translation.

A Rules Based Approach to Labelling and Artwork Management

Kallik

Many organisations today are experiencing unprecedented demands from regulatory authorities and consumers alike for product labelling to be made clearer and more informative. Forthcoming regulations (including the new EU MDR regulations coming into force May 2020) also require that labelling content to be published electronically in addition to print. As companies seek to continuously differentiate themselves in established markets as well as gain entry into new territories, the increase in both volume and complexity of product and market variations will have a direct impact on labelling.
