Magicard

CASE STUDY

Localisation of marketing collateral, both online and offline, into Spanish, French and Russian.

Magicard is a leading producer of hardware and software for ID card printing and issuance. With a successful UK HQ and US office, the company has more recently been working on expanding their business across Europe, and chose Web-Translations to help with this.

To expand the scope of their business, Magicard knew that they needed to be able to market some of their key products in other major world languages. Web-Translations oversaw the translation of marketing collateral into Spanish, French and Russian, using highly skilled linguists with a background in IT and technical translation. By providing linguists with detailed resources regarding stylistic preferences and product knowledge information, Web-Translations could achieve a uniform written style across all languages, and ensure that each text was technically sound. Seeing the potential for the further expansion of their products in Russia, Magicard have now commissioned Web-Translations with the translation of key pages on their website into Russian.

As a UK-based manufacturer wéb-tränslatiôns is always my ‘go to’ for quick and efficient multi-lingual translation. Whether it’s complete user-manuals (including the layout and design), lists of on-screen instructions for users of our products or marketing materials destined to reach partners around the Globe, I have total confidence that the job will be right first time and delivered fast. The team is an absolute pleasure to work with too and nothing is too much trouble. The day-job is always challenging and while I usually have ninety-nine problems, translation isn’t one of them.
