Case Study 1
Schuh is a UK based company expanding into Europe which, for the last 3 years, has trusted The Language Room with all their translation needs in French and German.
Schuh boasts over 100 shops across Britain and Ireland, a customer service close to perfection and a wide range of shoes fit to attract a huge range of customers. Schuh is undoubtedly one of the UK’s fastest growing retailers, regularly winning prizes for their outstanding services and products.
Schuh has a very successful website designed, among others, to attract new customers, and they are ready to tackle more than Britain. They know that the image they project and the way they train their employees is the key to having happy, loyal customers.
The Language Room was initially asked to translate Schuh’s sales message into French before moving to German with the opening of their first German shop in March 2015.
The Language Room is Schuh’s chosen provider of translations: from marketing material to legal documents, automated e-mails to training material. We work alongside Schuh to help with their exciting expansion into Europe. We thank them for trusting us and look forward to continuing to help them develop across Europe.
Case Study 2
The Scotch Whisky Experience
At the beginning of 2012, we provided The Scotch Whisky Experience with translations for the touch screen displays and information leaflets in their newly refurbished visitor centre located on the Royal Mile in Edinburgh. We have subsequently helped The Scotch Whisky Experience with updates to their whisky selection and restaurant menu. At the start of 2015, we completed the translation of their website.
The Scotch Whisky Experience is a very important part of the tourism trail for whisky in Scotland. It allows tourists to sample the diverse whiskies the country has to offer without leaving the capital city. However, it also benefits the distilleries throughout Scotland, as converted tourists become keen to travel and visit the distilleries.
The translation work for The Scotch Whisky Experience involved highly specific texts related to the history, taste and even pronunciation of all the whiskies on sale in their shop. We translated all the material about whiskies, as well as visitor centre information, into 19 different languages, including Scottish Gaelic.
We brought added value to The Scotch Whisky Experience by including the ‘checking’ of the uploaded screens in our price. We asked the designers to send us screen shots from the touch screens and finished leaflets in order to verify that everything had been transposed correctly. This allowed us to guarantee to The Scotch Whisky Experience that all the finished translations would read correctly for their visitors from overseas.
The Language Room is proud to have helped The Scotch Whisky Experience welcome their visitors.
