Ordinarily people might think of the translation process as a straightforward task where words in one language are simply transferred over to another language and grammar rules of target language applied. However translation process can be much more complex depending on the language combination, subject matter, audience and intent of the text (what is the purpose of the text?) GALA (Globalization & Localization Association) describes the purpose of translation as “The purpose of translation is to convey the original tone and intent of a message, taking into account cultural and regional differences between source and target languages.”


Different forms of translation exists. Transcreation is defined by Wikipedia as “A term used chiefly by advertising and marketing professionals to refer to the process of adapting a message from one language to another, while maintaining its intent, style, tone, and context.” A useful article explaining the differences between translation and transcreation can be found here.


Localisation involves several different elements and translation is only one of several elements of the localisation process and described as “The process of adapting a product or content to a specific locale or market.” by GALA. The full definition can be found here.


Copywriting is described as “Copywriting is the act of writing text for the purpose of advertising or other forms of marketing. The product, called copy, is written content that aims to increase brand awareness and ultimately persuade a person or group to take a particular action” by Wikipedia. I can help Turkish speaking individuals and companies present their brands or services to English speaking audiences or customers. I can also help English speaking individuals and companies present their brands or services to Turkish speaking audiences or customers.

Post-editing Machine Translation (PEMT)

Wikipedia describes PEMT as “Post-editing (or postediting) is the process whereby humans amend machine-generated translation to achieve an acceptable final product. A person who post-edits is called a post-editor.”
