Tip #1: Interpreting Client Conversations
Every design project begins with a conversation with potential clients. We can help make that conversation easier with human interpretation over the phone or computer. These days, interior design and home decor services are outsourced all over the world. You may work with a client in another state or country from the one where you live, do all of the buying and communicating online, and then only travel for the install. We can be there every step of the way making sure there is clear communication between you and your client.
Tip #2: Editing Promotional Materials
We can review all of your promotional materials for your design or home decor business, including email marketing, direct mail, posters and more. If you provide us with your files, we can amend the materials directly for you and send them back or we can outline the exact words and spelling of them (including accents if needed) in the local language of the audience you are targeting.
Tip #3: Creating a Connected Web Experience
Website localization, or the practice of making sure a website reads in a way that a local audience would understand and respond to it, is increasingly becoming a service requested by many companies. You can have precise translation of all of your materials, but if there is less formal phrase you should be using or a dialect that should be included–we can flag that for you so that you can speak to your audience in a way that will engage them and draw them in to your design business and all it can offer.
Tip #4: Detailed Design Plan Interpretation
Every design project requires a detailed plan–whether that is the architectural plan of the room or the specific products and wall paint colors that will be used in your house. Our translation service ensures that no detail goes missing. You’ll be able to communicate your full design vision with all of the details involved to your clients so that they can make decisions and empower you to give them the designed rooms of their dreams. Don’t let miscommunication or fickleness occur because your clients don’t fully understand what they are looking at or choosing from. Get ahead of this happening but investing in a translator every step of the way.
Tip #5: Contract Interpretation
Design contracts can be nuanced, detailed and even hard to understand. Worst of all, they can be binding when you don’t read or understand all of the details. Add in a communication barrier, and it becomes almost impossible to communicate clearly with your clients. You don’t have to wait until a miscommunication happens and your clients are mad at you or think you have been dishonest. Translating the materials and talking about them can drastically improve the chances of this happening and help make your clients feel that you are looking out for them. We provide all kinds of document interpretation, including detailed contracts. This will give your clients peace of mind and allow them to fully understand all of the nuances of the contract they are signing.
Tip #6: Catalog Interpretation
Home decor catalogs are descriptive and detailed, and require proper translation in order to help your clients understand what they are buying. We provide direct translation of home decor catalogs so that your clients can connect with the products. Otherwise, they must go on sight alone–and photos do not always accurately communicate size and materials. Make sure your clients understand what they are purchasing with our detailed translation offerings.
Tip #7: Trade Show Interpretation
All designers and home decor buyers go to trade shows to show off their work and meet new potential clients. It’s an opportunity to inspire and drum up new business. Trade shows provide time for designers and potential clients to meet, talk to one another, talk about potential design projects or issues and make a plan. Some clients sign a contract right at the trade show. But it’s impossible to close the deal with a new potential client if you cannot understand what he or she is saying. We provide in-person, virtual and phone translation so that you can truly hear what the client is saying and they can hear you, as well.
