Translation of Marketing Materials and Documents

 

Today, the marketing department is one of the main pillars in large corporations transforming ideas into practice using the marketing theory of 7Ps. We are aware of the importance of each category of service marketing (Product, Price, Promotion, Place, Personal, Process, Physical environment) and as language specialists we believe that we can play a strong role in some of these categories. Often, the efforts and resources invested in design and packaging, goes to waste when not enough emphasis is placed on a consistent and coherent product or campaign narrative. The Marketing industry is not about simple translation, but about the appropriate transfer of content, taking into account the linguistic and cultural characteristics of the target language.

Translation of Legal Documents and Procedures

Legal translation is an extremely complicated field of translation, as it requires the translator to have specialized knowledge of the respective legal systems, a mastery of the relevant legal terminology and, finally, excellent language skills in both languages so as not to miss a single nuance.
In order to guarantee high quality, legal translations at B&LS are handled exclusively by highly qualified translators.

Often, because of the difference between the legal systems of each country, there are no exact semantic equivalents between two terms. In order not to make mistakes, the legal translation is usually quite accurate.

However, at B&LS we understand that a law firm, a tax consultancy or a consulting firm needs to know what the equivalent term in Spanish would be, in order to better understand what stage a certain administrative or judicial procedure of their client is at. In case our client demands it, we would add this information in an appendix to the translation.
