“As a business, we trade in many countries across Europe and faced regular challenges when it came to translating in-store signage. Working with Prestige Network, we were able to eliminate these issues and develop a reliable and fast-paced service. The service and skill I have encountered at Prestige Network from the beginning not only impressed but filled me with the confidence to recommend them to others.”
Localising in-store signage plays a central role in accurately identifying with customers. It is essential that all signage is correct, consistent and high quality in every language. Being an international Retail brand, our client’s in-store signs are regularly translated into 9 languages. When members of the Signage and Brand Presentation teams at the brand’s European headquarters became aware of inconsistencies and errors with in-store signage, they realised these errors resulted in expensive reprinting costs and took up the Store Manager’s precious time.
Prestige Network liaised closely with the client to understand the brand’s needs by raising multiple queries. Working with native speakers of the appropriate languages, Prestige Network developed an agreed set of accurate terminology and produced signage reference material and signage-specific translation instructions.
Our innovative Translation Memory Software ensured continued consistency in the use of these terms and formats, reducing errors and reprints, thereby saving costs to the company. Following this the company was confident to allow Prestige Network to work directly with their printing supplier, saving them both time and money.
Introduction of these new processes by Prestige Network demonstrated both cost and time savings. For the client, the decision to go with Prestige Network was not based on cost alone, it was important that mistakes of the past were resolved and not repeated. The client’s team took the decision to appoint Prestige Network, an established and top quality language service supplier, with the ability to handle the work efficiently and effectively.
