Expert Japanese Marketing Translation Services

February 29, 2024

The ability to communicate effectively across cultural boundaries is paramount if you’re planning to expand your business internationally. Expert Japanese marketing translation services provide more than just linguistic accuracy. They ensure your message resonates with cultural sensitivity and precision.

We demonstrated this in our latest English to Japanese translation project for an indigenous non-government organization (NGO) seeking to translate marketing materials to promote their products in the Japanese market.

Our Client

Our client reached out to us as they planned to promote their NGO's products at a conference in Japan. The products they're promoting are their crops and produce from their communities' farms and indigenous groups, as well as their advocacy for sustainable agriculture and indigenous practices.

They sought out Tomedes because of our experience in handling projects related to translating various Japanese marketing content. For this reason, the client reached out to us because our Japanese translators' cultural and linguistic expertise ensures that each word is accurately translated, conveying the message properly. This is crucial as they will not only be promoting products but also the cultural and indigenous heritage of their communities.

The Project

Since their company will be visiting Japan in a couple of weeks, they need their marketing materials and postcards, to be ready as soon as possible. They gave us four days to finish the task.

The project's objective is that we needed to translate marketing materials from English to Japanese, like brochures, business cards, leaflets, and promotional posters, which will be handed out or placed on display at the conference area. We also need to ensure that the Japanese marketing translation not only accurately captures their organization's message but also makes it culturally relevant to their Japanese audience.

Translating Marketing Visions: English to Japanese

The essence of this project lies in its challenge to convey the brand’s identity, values, and messaging through culturally resonant marketing materials. This is especially true when translating marketing materials for the Japanese market.

Its economy relies on imports from the global market for various goods like agricultural products. According to the International Trade Administration, the US alone exports to Japan agricultural produce, industrial materials, natural gasses, and medical products that are worth 80 billion USD.

For agricultural-based organizations like our client, this makes the Japanese market one of the best countries to expand and fill in market gaps not yet addressed by local businesses and competitors.

This is also where Japanese marketing translation is essential for businesses and organizations seeking to do cross-cultural marketing and attract the target Japanese customers. The translation process was meticulous, focusing on adapting slogans, brand messaging, and promotional content to reflect Japanese cultural preferences and values.

The ultimate goal was to enhance the brand’s presence and appeal in Japan, fostering a connection with the local audience that goes beyond mere translation, aiming for true market expansion and brand enhancement.

The Challenges

Since marketing translation is a specialized form of translation, it's to be expected that we would face some challenges. Below are some of the challenges that we encountered:

Ensuring Relevant and Accurate Translations: One of the primary challenges was ensuring that all translations preserved the essence of the original content while being sensitive to Japanese cultural nuances. This was particularly challenging as we needed to have a deep understanding of both source and target cultures: the indigenous culture of the NGO and the broader Japanese market.
Preserving the Original Message: Maintaining the brand’s voice and messaging across from English to Japanese posed a significant challenge. Besides changing the tone to cater to the Japanese market's more formal approach towards business and marketing, it also had to balance it out with remaining true to the NGO's unique style and message.
Adapting Technical Terminology and Jargon: Translating technical terms and jargon into Japanese required not just linguistic skills but also industry knowledge to ensure accuracy and appropriateness.
