How to effectively create multilingual packaging

Does your business have the most amazing products for consumers and businesses? Want to take it to the next level? Want to promote your product or business globally? If you do, then you are going to ensure that your packaging will appeal or be understood on a global level. But how do you do this?

Always think about the bigger market

If your product has been a success, then chances are that it is largely because you have understood your market and where you fit in. When you want to take your product globally, you are going to need to think about how you fit in with the market that you are trying to appeal to. It might be similar to your current audience, but there also might be some key differences that you want to keep in mind for it to be success. This could be something as easy as colour, or perhaps any imagery that you use on the product too.

Do you translate your brand?

Another important consideration to make is whether or not you are going to translate one of the biggest parts of your business, your brand. Some businesses decide to translate their logo and their name to create greater appeal to their global customers. Others, perhaps those that rely heavily on their name (like Coca Cola and Nike), they will decide to keep their logo and name as it is and instead rely on their customers recognising their product.

Organise product packaging translation

Sometimes you just need to call professionals to make sure that your products are properly translated and that they appear as professional as possible to your customers. Thankfully there are translation companies out there specialise in product packaging translation, who will work with you to make sure that no matter what you are selling, the packaging will appeal globally.

Think about how many languages you focus on

Many people are going to say that you need to go big or go home, however, this might not always be the right approach when it comes to taking your business global. Of course it is always a good idea to try and do your best to grow your business, but if you want to make sure that you have the best chance of success, then you might want to consider smaller steps. Focus on one market, one language at a time and make sure that you do your best with that one before you move onto the next. Else you could find out that your global domination isn’t quite what you want it to be.

It can be hard to take your product to the next step and make it global, however, if you get it right then we can promise that it is going to be worth it in the long run. So, think about how you market that product and the packaging that you use, both of which can make a difference as to whether or not your product is a success, no matter where you are trying to sell it.

Always remember that Axis Translations can assist you with product packaging translations.
