Music industry specials

Discount Specials Comments Off on Music industry specials


So, here at TranslationSmart, we’ve been doing top-notch, affordable translations for the last 11 years. Many of our clients are from numerous disciplines, such as heavy machinery all the way to localization of advanced software. We already have quite a few clients in the industry, but our VP (a performing musician for the last 25 years and a former music retailer!) would like to see more. As a purchaser of numerous pro audio, guitar, and other musical products, he has seen just how many companies either don’t translate their materials, or rely on sub-standard translations (Google Translate, the guy in the warehouse, the kid down the street) instead of relying on professional translators. Even many of the overseas companies – their translations into English have grammatical errors and things of that nature that should never “make it to market”!

What are we going to do about it? Simple – for the spring months of March, April, and May – TranslationSmart is offering deep discounts off of our already competitive prices to allow members of the musical products industry to put their best foot forward in the international market. Let’s be honest – the internet has made it where even if you produce in small quantities, you’re still exporting! Both sides of the globe have a voracious appetite for the latest gear – it’s about time you gave them what they want!

We have teams of translators available now with all levels of musical experience and expertise ready to tackle projects of any size and scope! You’ve devoted your life to making music better, let’s work together to make it GLOBAL!

Contact us today for a free, no obligation quotation. Our quotes are binding and include desktop publishing and typesetting, proofreading, and many more services that other firms charge more for. We’re customer-centric, which is why we still have our first clients from our first week in business!
