— Evolution Power Tools
 

The Requirement

Evolution Power Tools’ products are sold in many countries across the world. Their products and user manuals must conform to local safety laws and guidelines and Evolution must communicate with all of their customers in their own language; understanding local culture.


The Solution

Since 2004, Talking Heads has provided translation into any required language of user manuals, packaging, marketing materials, POS materials, website content, social media campaigns and customer support.

Research

Understanding our client and copy content is key to delivering effective translations. Every Account Manager and Project Manager conducts research into the sector, company, products and ‘tone of voice’, ensuring their complete understanding of the content they are managing.


Recruitment

Working from our in-house pool of over 11,000 worldwide linguists, internal recruitment and training is carried out to ensure the best linguists are chosen, based on mother-tongue language, sector expertise and experience in translating and copywriting for the sector, product and type of content. A selection of linguists is then shortlisted and trained / inducted in the account brand and project/s.

With such a long relationship, Evolution now has an experienced, passionate linguist team working on their translations who know the brand inside out.

Formatting / Implementation

Files are sent to us either in MS Word, Adobe InDesign or PDF format. For any format, our ‘target’ language files must mirror the ‘source’ language files as much as possible, allowing for cultural localisation. This includes layout, imagery, indexing, contents tables, font choice and technical implementation (incl. for script languages such as Arabic). Print-ready files are returned.

Pricing

Like any business, our customer Evolution Power Tools has strict budgets. After discussion about their limitations and requirements, we have created a bespoke pricing plan. Therefore our client always knows where they stand, and can often work out an approximate cost before they even send the work to us. They find this extremely helpful when they are at key pricing stages.
