What’s the difference between translation and localization? It’s a question we get asked a lot. The translation process involves translating a source language into a target language, say English to Spanish. Localization goes beyond translating. During the localization process, a document is translated into the culture it’s intended for. For example, Spanish is linguistically similar in Mexico and Spain. Yet the countries are completely different culturally. The same document would be localized differently for Spain and Mexico to account for local idioms, sayings and overall cultural values and mindset.
With marketing campaigns and websites, it’s particularly important to communicate fluidly with your audience. No one will buy from you if they can’t understand you. Your audience may not trust you as much if they see you as an outsider or someone who doesn’t understand them. Localization goes the extra step to ensure you’re speaking their language and culture.
