What’s the difference between translation, localization and transcreation?

Translation, localization and transcreation are three concepts that can easily be misused for each other and it can be tricky to spot the difference if you’re not familiar with the nuances of these three services. Let’s clarify the difference so you can know which service you need!

Translation is applied in highly specific contexts and expertise such as law, medicine or technical texts.

Localization is applied when you need to adapt the content of websites and software to a locale. Each country and culture has different conventions and traditions which directly have an effect on how they approach the internet and software they use. Knowing these differences and offering a localized product plays a vital role for the adoption of a product by consumers.

Transcreation is used to create a completely new content in target language based on a text in a source language. Although the final text may be completely different from the original one, it still delivers the same message. Creative translation can be used within the localization process or can be asked for content that needs to be heavily adapted to the target culture.
