Local features: A strategic challenge.
Linguistic adaptation consists of giving content the local features of a country, even if the language remains the same. For example, a document written in Canadian French can be adapted to look right for a native French reader living in France. Our high degree of proficiency in local variants enables us to adapt a text from one to another without needing to retranslate everything, which saves time and lowers costs.
This skill requires extensive knowledge of the nuances, idioms, and regional specifics needed to be perfectly in tune with the cultural context of each region. That's why we always assign these projects to translators who live in the target country.

Scriptis has been handling linguistic adaptation projects for more than years, for many different companies.

The project, which involves both translating and adapting the client's terminology, includes the application interface and numerous training guides.
