Helps You Reach Multicultural Audiences, confidently
Information localization is the transformation of literature originally created for audiences of a specific cultural background, in order that this same literature can be understood by audiences of a different cultural background. The process involves advanced translation and documentation activities performed by specially trained teams.
Unless specifications and processes were reviewed by a knowledgeable team, chances are that project timelines were miscalculated and delivery strategies likely to go awry. It is imperative that one has sufficient insights in information localization, to steer clear from potential pitfalls and avoid costly reworking or business rollout delays.
IPPWORLD helps you address a broad range of non-technical and technical issues that are inherent or bequeathed due to poor planning or a lacking in specific skills. Typically, business information refers to corporate administration, operations, marketing, technical and non-technical training needs on various media platforms and formats such as; printed documents, websites, content management systems, audio and video.
Enterprises embarking on or managing an international business and related organizational objectives would need information tailored to worldwide employees and customers, in specific locations around the world.
Success in providing global information requires the convergence of critical inputs on locale market perspectives, cultural and audience demographics, product alignment strategy, as well as effective supervision on various documentation, publishing and production activities.
IPPWORLD adaptive information capabilities are supported by unique sets of methodologies, content development tools, as well as multinational and industry-wide terminology libraries, to help you develop global-ready information effortlessly.
Brand globalization involves more than attractive design concepts delivered in a choice of languages. One has to also consider strategizing campaigns that suit different cultural mindsets and to be managed by information development teams that know how to deal with respective content character scripts and software peculiarities unique to each target language.
As each point-of-sale will involve multi-ethnic employees, resellers and consumers, maintaining equivalent levels of brand awareness while operating in many locations around the world, is a highly complex process. At the heart of Global Branding is a well-organized collaborative workflow system amongst translators, multilingual editors, designers and application specialists, to develop, manage and distribute information in multiple languages and multi-application platforms.
When brands go global, traditional processes that could once deal separately with publicity information, product literature and employee training, simply will not work. Because in each territory, companies would need to fulfill a host of documentation needs such as; licensing and filing regulations, publicity, marketing and training, before their products could reach prospective consumers. As products roll into market, customer response management and after-sales procedures are needed to track brand awareness, publicity impact, sales strategy and performances.
Add up the information required for each item in the product lines, multiply by the number of markets and we can imagine the complexity of information to be managed. Furthermore, as we leverage the Internet to disseminate information, communicate and process orders, global brand management will surpass an even wider spectrum of information development processes.

When publicity media goes global, responding to challenges goes beyond the skills of creative designers and system engineers. Equally critical is the ability to evaluate, strategize and manage multi-faceted linguistic activities, in order to generate information in multiple languages; ubiquitous on paper and multi-platform content management systems.
There is a call for a new breed of co-sourcing expertise, to help solve critical issues in global information management. Businesses need information that touches people of many nationalities. It is also necessary to overcome communication obstacles among multi-ethnic employees, partners and resellers in the extended media development chain. Some of the issues at hand are:
Insights to local practices and perspectives on terminology preferences and industry-specific jargons. Insights include rational and emotional intelligences for tracking of market penetration, managing consumer profiles and customer responses.
This refers to clarity and efficiency in communicating with multi-ethnic, multicultural employees and partners. Efficiency can be achieved by removing obstacles whereby generic, technical or esoteric topics are conveniently updated and made accessible in bi-directional or multiple languages.
