Summary:Learn how to meet the needs of the ever-growing fashion industry as multilingual websites and online shops expand their market share every day: a concise guide for better fashion translations.
Description
In a few concise steps, learn how to meet the needs of the ever-growing fashion industry as multilingual websites and online shops expand their market share every day.
We all wear clothes, so fashion translation really is like any other marketing translation, you just translate what's there - that's what many of us think, clients, agencies and translators alike. This, however, is very often the first in a series of mistakes that lead to an unsatisfactory relationship between client and translator.

In this webinar you will learn what the fashion clients wish, how you can deliver that and what tools you will need in order to do so.
This is a very fast lived sector, you have to act quickly and wisely in order to deliver the client what he wants, when he wants it.
Time management is a big factor in this kind of translation - not because of the size of documents, rather because you need to give a quick turnover time for many different little things and the odd larger-scale one.

Make it sell: The more your client sells, the sooner he will come back to you for more. Make those products attractive! It's challenging to combine speed, accuracy and that special feel for fashion into one. But with a little preparation and the right tools at your hand you will be able to meet your clients expectations. You will learn how to apply to a job posting: what to send, how to send it and what to expect. Also you will learn to deal with the feedback from the client.
Whether you are already doing some translation in this sector or none at all, this course will boost your confidence as to how to approach things and help you get it right - the first time.

From a point of view of a regular fashion translator and that of an ex-PM, I will show you how to make more of your time and cut off your part of the cake.
