Retail Translation Services

Our retail translation services promise quality, consistency, and impact, and we can handle website or software localisation seamlessly.

Customers around the world demand high quality content in their own language when making purchases online. Quality translation is therefore vital for retailers wanting to successfully communicate with international customers, manufacturers, and employees. Our retail translation services deliver outstanding quality, which is why we are trusted by retail giants and household FMCG companies worldwide to help them compete on a global scale.

With relevant sector expertise and deep marketplace knowledge, our professional in-country translators strike the challenging balance of synchronising global brand equity with a local touch. We also boast unbeatable reliability and technological solutions, and as lines become blurred between brick and mortar stores and the virtual world of eCommerce, our ability to seamlessly localise websites and software puts us head and shoulders above the rest.

Specialism and experience

It is not only our decades of experience working with market-leading retailers that produce such accurate and insightful translations, but also the dedicated work of our native translators who lend their sector expertise and local market insight to retail translation projects. When combined, these key components deliver culturally-aware content with flair and precision. Only such translations can represent true value to consumers, maintaining relevance, enhancing loyalty, and driving sales.

Consistent quality

Internal and external material alike needs consistency to ensure understanding and impact. This is exactly why we put rigorous quality controls in place, such as building extensive Translation Memories, collaborating with you to create and approve tailored glossaries, and working in line with ISO 9001:2015 quality standards. Our retail translation clients profit time and time again from the tightly-targeted, unified translations this approach produces, as well as the subsequent trust and respect it builds amongst readers.

Website and software localisation

We recognise the importance of digital expertise and use our technological talents to pass on considerable cost, quality, and consistency to our clients. Through skilful implementation of Translation Memory technology, portals, and plug-ins, we can facilitate better user experiences and ensure parity across your market offerings. Our eCommerce platform integration does just that by immediately processing updates for translation on the original site and publishing them to your localised site after review, bypassing potential time zone delays and administrative burden.


Rapidly evolving markets can change your retail translation requirements at any given moment, so you need a solution as reliable and capable as The Translation People. We have the sound, scalable infrastructure to handle quick turnarounds and large volumes, and your dedicated Account Manager will make it their job to know your requirements inside out. Our reputation is built on fulfilling projects smoothly and economically, because we understand that your business depends on it.

Comprehensive solutions

Thanks to our full-service capabilities we can cater to all the retail industry’s fast-paced localisation requirements, from video subtitling and voiceover to reformatting of translated artwork packages ready for print. Better still, our custom-built client portal streamlines workflows and provides project updates to optimise clarity and efficiency in an often restless sector.
