The main concern was, and still is to create engaging content used to describe branch locations across the world, while naturally incorporating keywords relating to car rental. In French.

The challenge here was to convey Golley's message to prospective clients in a different market with different cultural references and yet the same objectives as many UK clients. Transcreation at its best!

This software localisation was a long-term project requiring not only excellent translation and copy-writing skills as well as a good understanding of programming but organisation and consistency, tight deadline management and exceptional team work.
I worked with this travel group for over a year on the localisation of all their listing systems, including listing pages, forms, error messages, automated emails, help pages, buttons, blog and marketing material. A technical, cultural and literary challenge to say the least.
After consulting with this English/EFL school, I also helped localise the school's website and Social Media in order to appeal to their French audience.
I was commissioned to localise Biopharma's marketing and training material whilst accurately conveying the technical information, adhering to the industry's scientific jargon and maintaining the team's French glossaries. Research was key to successfully deliver one of my most technical assignments.
