Common Questions asked by our clients

Will my branding be preserved?

Yes! We utilise style sheets and translation memory technology to ensure brand consistency across languages and cultures where possible. If you don’t already have a style sheet created, this is usually one of our first steps in any translation project.

Can you help me translate my cosmetics website?

We offer a complete suite of website translation and localisation services, that will be built using our subject matter experts ensuring that your website is made suitable for your target market.

Can you help me translate my cosmetics and beauty packaging?

With the use of dedicated style sheets and advanced translation memory technology, we can effectively and accurately translate packaging and labeling. More so, the fact that we work with some of the worlds largest beauty brands means we can offer guidance and advice to navigate some of the regulations around cosmetics, beauty and skincare translations. 

How do I know my translation will be compliant?

Our dedicated project managers possess an intimate knowledge of the regulatory environments for a wide range of industries. Additionally, we employ sector specialist linguists who understand the terminology involved in even the most stringent industries.

I need quick translation services. Is there a quick solution?

As well as bespoke solutions, we offer a range of off-the-shelf services for quick and efficient access to the linguists you need. These can be purchased easily through our website.

Can you translate my ingredients?

With the use of sector-expert linguists, we are able to translate ingredient lists with care for regulatory environments as well as design and spacing restrictions.

I have complex requirements. Can I speak to a human?

Of course.  With sector specialist teams, our project managers will have comprehensive experience of working in your industry and will guide ad support you through the translation process to create the solution you need.

Why are some languages/subjects more expensive?

Some languages are more complex and can take translators longer to process. With some, it can be harder to find qualified linguists because the language is not as prevalent, and more work may be involved to source linguists with understanding of a given language as well as your industry. 

How long does translation take?

This depends highly on the length of the material, what form it’s provided in, and the rarity (or not) of the target language. In many cases, it’s possible to receive a same-day translation if needed.

I only have a few words to translate? Can you help?

We know that often brands will have a product name or short DFU to translate in a bid to hit deadlines or comply with distribution and retailer requirements.  Not a problem.  We have a range of packages and special deals for our clients meaning you wont spend a fortune on translations.  

Do you know about cosmetics regulations?

Absolutely.  In fact we partner with compliance experts and microbiological testing facilities to stay attuned to changing global regulations.  For example, we know the differences of Regulation (EC) N° 1223/2009 compared to the Federal Law No 28 of 2001 of UAE and how your labeling should comply.
