  • Brand Vocabulary: The company’s unique brand vocabulary had to be seamlessly integrated into the translation.
  • Glossary Integration: A glossary containing key terms and their translations had to be incorporated to maintain consistency.
  • Transcreation: This involved adapting meta elements like meta descriptions and meta tags to ensure they resonate with the target audience while retaining the original intent.
  • Comprehensive SEO optimization: All key elements like image alt texts, URLs, and documents required translation to ensure the website’s SEO wasn’t compromised.
