Foreign Language Videos

A foreign language video can be a huge asset to your business or organisation. Even if your potential clients speak English, there isn’t a better way to understand their needs and cultural desires than to speak to them in their own language. Producing a foreign language video helps make a great first impression, and it shows that you are willing to go above and beyond to maintain the relationship. In many cultures, attempting to speak the language is viewed as a sign of respect and has the potential to open doors in the future.

Did You Know?

When Pepsi launched in China, so the story goes, the translation of the slogan, ‘Come alive with the Pepsi generation’, promised consumers something a little different.

Could Pepsi really bring their ancestors back from the dead? The result was apparently a dip in sales.While this has never been properly substantiated, according to urban legend-busting website Snopes, Pepsi has never denied it.

Be that as it may, companies across the globe have come a cropper moving into foreign markets.

Braniff Airlines, for example, once offered Spanish-speaking passengers the opportunity to ‘fly naked’ rather than on leather seats.

But for businesses operating online, the push to be multilingual is hard to ignore.

Research commissioned by the European Commission found that 82% of consumers were less likely to buy goods online if the site was not in their native language.

Globally, research firm Common Sense Advisory found that 72.4% of consumers were more likely to buy a product with information in their own language.Arena Flowers’ co-founder and managing director, Will Wynne, would agree.

Say it with Flowers

The online florist launched in 2006 in the UK. In 2008 the business started moving into European markets, first in Holland, then Germany, France and Belgium, with other countries on the horizon.

Each site has its own url rather than running from the main site, and customer-service issues are dealt with by native speakers.

The decision to translate the sites was easy, according to Mr Wynne.

“I think the language is a no-brainer. You’re not going to have any success if you don’t adapt to the local language.

“It’s almost a matter of respect. If you think there’s 60 million people in France and 80 million in Germany, and the idea that they would use our website if we didn’t translate is probably a bit ambitious,” he said.
