International E-newsletters – effective e-comms for global audiences
Globalisation is making the world seem a smaller place, and an increasing number of businesses are trading internationally. However global communications require a high level of local ‘know-how’ – to be successful in communicating to a geographically widespread audience it’s vital that you ‘talk the same language’ as every recipient.
While a global e-newsletter can be timely and convenient, its content must be relevant and easy to understand – no matter where recipients are based on the planet.
Language selection is really important. Simply translating an English version directly into other languages won’t take into account colloquialisms, cultural sensitivities, and word-plays that may exist in your material.
Localisation is very different to translation – it’s a segmentation form in itself. And it’s worth remembering that speaking to individual audiences in their terms can dramatically improve results.
Surprisingly enough the majority of the world’s English speakers follow a British rather than American form – so even e-newsletters bound for the US can pose linguistic hurdles!
