Sustainability Translation Services
Whether you represent a corporate entity, an NGO or government department, sustainability translation services are hugely important in today’s global community.
If you are responsible for your company’s sustainability programme, which may be part of a wider CSR or ESG agenda, then being understood across multiple cultures and understanding the points of view of those cultures is vital to your success. Similarly, your communications need to be readily accessible across a swathe of countries, cultures and languages.
The pillars of sustainability
Sustainability necessarily needs to be a global effort, simply because the effects of unsustainable practices are global in scale. The pillars of sustainability are based on economic viability, environmental protection, and social equity, and are all international in scope. They encompass a wide range of disciplines, sub-sciences, governmental policies and regulations.
Sustainability communication channels
There is a plethora of communication channels designed to reach every audience. Printed material, websites and apps, video content, white papers, social media posts and email correspondence all require a slightly different approach when it comes to translation. Print layouts, for example, should factor in translation uplift. Some languages can expand by as much as 40% compared to the source text, so it’s worth keeping this in mind at the layout design stage. Online, however, is far more forgiving.
No matter which communication channels you choose, your translated content needs to be engaging, clear and accurate. Mistranslations of key terminology could easily hamper your organisation’s efforts.
Planet Languages’ sustainability translation team are accomplished linguists with in-depth knowledge of sustainability issues and adept at conveying your message effectively in your target markets.
We can also advise on making the most of each channel by providing guidance on layout design for printed communication and editing appropriately for online audiences. Planet Languages uses state-of-the-art technology and custom workflows to ensure consistency in your message across multiple territories and campaigns.
