Sometimes, what may seem funny or eye-catching in one language may be deadpan and even vulgar in another. This is why transcreation is necessary. This type of translation requires the professional to harness a good deal of creativity and knowledge, while taking into account the culture that the text is going to be translated into; as well as understanding the source language and culture perfectly. Only then will the author’s intention be maintained in the new language. This is important, because the transcreator is aiming for the target audience to react in exactly the same way to the new translated text as the original native audience reacted to the original.

This type of translation very often appears in audiovisual, advertising and literary texts, no matter how short they are. Transcreation skills are particularly important in such texts, since we are often dealing with metaphors, suggestiveness and words with double meanings.

Trust us with your most sensitive translations, where puns, humour, subtlety and poetry are prominent. These texts almost always require the translator to rewrite them without losing the essence of their content. Only a qualified, experienced transcreator can do this effectively.

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin

      Cassie, I recommend you get a NASB Study bible, esceliaply the MacArthur Study Bible. Or the ESV study Bible, which is very well respected. I personally would recommend against purchasing a KJV study Bible for your daily Bible for reading and studying. It is very valuable to have and occasionally read a KJV, NIV, NASB, NKJV, and ESV if you can do it but it is comes down to one for daily reading and studying as your main Bible for every day, make it the ESV or NASB.
