See What Happens When You Don't Use Professional Swedish Translation Service?
Any Swedish-English translator should always be aware that his sales materials are going to properly translate. For instance, the Swedish furniture company IKEA, which is very popular in North America - had a product in its catalog a few years ago, which was a workbench cart on wheels named “the Fartfull.” While “fartfull” means “full speed” in Swedish, in English, it implies something completely different, and probably not what IKEA was going for. This is a classic case of a sales and marketing oversight in a Swedish to English translation. Even Fortune 500 companies and billion dollar industries can make translation blunders. This is why it's so important to have Swedish sales translation and and Swedish sales translation proofreading performed by a professional human Swedish translation company like Tomedes.
The market research industry often goes hand in hand with sales, because the two are closely tied. Market research is needed to acquire sales, and even more necessary for translation of sales presentations. Cultural significance of translated marketed logos and catch phrases is extremely important to know. Often logos that are acceptable or marketable to one culture, can translate quite differently to another, and sometimes can even be offensive. Cultural transference is an extremely important part of any sales presentation translation or translated marketing campaign. Swedish to English sales translation requires all these same strides for effective and accurate translation services.
