General (Retail) Merchandising Translation
English to French General (Retail) Merchandising Translation and French to English General Merchandising Translation
We assist organizations within the retail merchandising with sector-specific documentation (or otherwise) that is written in the English or Spanish languages and requires accurate translation into French. General Merchandising subject areas for which we can source freelance translation expertise include: Ratail Store Design and Construction; Retail Marketing and Sales; Retailing Activities; and Retail Trade. (See also: Food Industry Translation – Food Distributors – Food and Drugstore Suppliers).
General merchandising encompasses a whole host of topics that touch upon a wide variety of retailing activities. Documentation requiring translation that we are capable of handling would include (but not be limited to) the following general merchandising sectors: Regulation; Lobbying; Research & Development (product design, store design, demographics); Marketing (promotion of brand name and generic products, promotion of new products, public opinion research, advertising, packaging, pricing, displays, public relations, etc.); Wholesaling and Distribution (warehousing, transportation and logistics); and, Retailing (shopping centres, shopping malls, big box outlets, boutiques, kiosks).
Of course, in addition to English or from French and English to or from Spanish general merchandising translation assignments, we can also assist you with the translation of the world's most popular languages into or from: Chinese; Arabic; German; Japanese; Portuguese; Russian; Korean; Italian; Hindi; and more...
General Merchandising (Retail) Services Language – Technical Considerations
Our translators, editors and proofreaders render well-written and clearly understandable texts. We place a high value on rendering a finished product that is faithful to the technical (i.e. general merchandising and retail sector) as well as cultural nuances of the target language text, where such may apply.
French to English General Merchandising Translation Projects and French to Spanish General Merchandising Translation Projects
We assist businesses in finding the best available French to English and French to Spanish general merchandising translation resources – including experienced freelance translators familiar with general merchandising jargon (actual current or former practionners in the field of general merchandising and retailing if appropriate or required).
In our experience, a target language native-speaker may not necessarily be the right freelance general merchandising translator for the job. (See: Common myths and misconceptions about translation.) Though a native-speaker may be preferable for certain translation assignments, having native language skills may not 'translate into' general merchandising jargon expertise (pun intended). An experienced linguist with strong Spanish and French or English and French language translation credentials, in-depth experience and professional credentials in general merchandising and retailing translation, regardless of native language, may often prove to be a better choice.
In a nutshell, we use professional translators who have a solid mastery of the language used in the general merchandising (grammar, spelling, technical and cultural nuances) and a solid understanding of the subject matter.
Once we are confident that the appropriate freelance resources have been identified and certain that we can honour the project deadline, we submit a quote for the translation assignment.
If we cannot secure the appropriate resources, we will do our best to refer you to general merchandising translation sources of information that we have confidence in.
