Talking about market research means talking about many other things. Research methodologies and revenue increase through data collection, for example, are some of the most commonly mentioned topics. Despite the fact that these topics get more attention in the market research discussions, every single aspect matters and makes all the difference for a research success. The connection between market research and translation, for example, is one of these overlooked, but still important, topics.

Translation and Market Research

Market research still has a lot of room to grow and to become even more popular than it currently is now in the business world. Nevertheless, companies are making use of it more and more, turning the market research area into a global industry. Because of that, it is not unusual for research companies to cover multiple countries, spread around different continents in the whole world.

Becoming global, then, means dealing with different cultures, different time zones, and different languages. In order to reach full potential, research companies need to be able to surpass these “barriers” and translation is an essential piece of this puzzle. Without it, communication with respondents and clients is compromised, but taking advantage of it certainly brings better results and a higher possibility of success.
