By Adriana Adarve | Published 03/15/2017 | Art of Translation and Interpreting | Not yet recommended
What Is Transcreation? How does it relate to translation, and why is it important in cultural diversity.

The following situation can arise in any business, but is particularly crucial for companies whose major asset is qualified staff. For a translation agency, these are managers, translators and editors. Base line: the head of a quite successful company feels a kind of stagnation in its development, or perhaps is just bored of the daily grind. They are not pleased with the way their employees communicate, how mid-level managers act, their working hours, company Internet misuse, etc. Moreover, they have heard somewhere that their competitors are more financially efficient. So they take a couple of training sessions, read a few booklets with titles like ‘How to Tame the Chaos Around You’, find like-minded colleagues and begin to implement reforms as if they have gained some secret knowledge. Below we will consider what results this may lead to.
