Instead of a bunch of words, you have to send a message. Your marketing message in a foreign language must talk to the native speaker.
That’s why I’m talking about transcreation. It is a creative process. In a way, it uses the original text as a brief for writing new copy that meets the conditions of the target language and the target audience. (Some people prefer to use the terms adaptation or localisation for the same process.) This in contrast to ordinary translation that usually produces too word-for-word results to work well in marketing. I’m sure you’ve met quite enough of that when having your marketing materials translated by agencies…
Use a multilingual copywriter to transcreate your messages and make them work. Being a copywriter with a degree in translation and a record of hundreds of successful transcreations for a host of businesses, I can deliver your message in another language so that it feels as if originally written in that language. I have transcreated material from medical imaging equipment to mobile phones, from cosmetics to computers, from hotels to law firms, from European Union project documents to ocarina building.
Kimmo has provided both copy writing and translation services to us. I find him a professional in both areas.

Everyone has his particular strengths. That’s why I focus on transcreations
