Neuroscience and Localization Expertise:TranslateMedia announces partnership with Mountainview

Neuroscience and Localization Expertise to deliver engagement TranslateMedia announces partnership with Mountainview Learning
May 10, 2011 - PRLog -- TranslateMedia, the award-winning global translation agency is proud to announce a partnership with neuroscience experts Mountainview Learning.
Mountainview provides custom research to assesses human emotive and cognitive responses to external stimuli, performing audience testing and data analysis using advanced neuro-cognitive techniques, including eye-tracking, electroencephalograms (EEG), and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI).
By tracking conscious and unconscious reactions to visual and aural stimuli, Mountainview are able to give brands and agencies scientifically grounded ingredients to include in their campaigns to maximise the defined audience’s engagement.
Evgeniya Petrova at Mountainview: “As human beings our brains share many characteristics and respond in similar ways across cultures and continents. However, there is evidence that people in different cultures perceive the world slightly differently. In Russian, Italian and other languages for instance, we have two words for blue, depending on the shade - regarding them as different colours - whereas English does not make this distinction."
Multilingual production not only requires translation of text, but also adaptation of visual layouts and, in the case of multimedia products, adaptation of user experience and navigation methods. Providing effective, user-friendly navigation in several languages can be a real challenge. The correct use of the target language will build trust and engagement in the audience, whereas poor language can turn the audience off quickly.
TranslateMedia’s Matt Train explains: “Our clients in media, advertising and marketing rely on us to provide fully localised translations that speak to their audience. We consult with them to build localisation briefs that mean the content is not only translated, but speaks directly to their audience.”
By sharing resources Mountainview will gain access to TranslateMedia’s extensive network of native in-country linguists, while TranslateMedia gains insights into attention and memory triggers and how they vary from culture to culture around the world.
"This co-operation represents a step forward for us in our services. Now we can base our translations not only on the brief and the audience, but also on scientific research” says Matt Train.
