Newsletter Translation & Design – Case Study

Maxcess International needs to provide quarterly updates to employees in 10 countries (and 10 different languages!) to effectively communicate financial updates, management updates, company news, Covid-19 safety protocol, and company vision & values. Each newsletter is about 8 pages long and between 2,000-2,500 words. Maxcess International partnered with EPIC Translations to successfully manage the newsletter translation plus design for timely distribution.

Maxcess International is a global corporation operating 7 different industry-leading brands that provide quality end-to-end, unwind-to-rewind solutions. They operate across the manufacturing sector and have risen as an industry leader in rotary dies, web guiding & web inspection solutions, and slitting & winding solutions. As a global business, Maxcess International needs to provide quarterly updates to employees in 10 countries (and 10 different languages!) to effectively communicate financial updates, management updates, company news, Covid-19 safety protocol, and company vision & values. Each newsletter is about 8 pages long and between 2,000-2,500 words. 
 
Given the multinational environment of the company’s reach, it is critically important to keep global human resources on the same page and communications clear. 
 
By partnering with EPIC Translations, Maxcess can translate and design the quarterly newsletter and distribute across their global locations.

The Solution
To ensure proper communication with their employees, Maxcess partnered with EPIC Translations to translate and design their quarterly newsletter in 10 languages: 
  1. Chinese
  2. German
  3. Spanish
  4. French
  5. Italian
  6. Japanese
  7. Korean
  8. Polish
  9. Portuguese
  10. Thai
The translation phase included two or three linguists per language to translate, edit, and proofread the newsletter copy. The linguists were vetted and assigned to Maxcess based on industry expertise, prior translation experience, and education. Once the initial translation was complete, it was integrated with the client’s English design file in Adobe InDesign to ensure proper layout of text and design elements.

Through EPIC Translation’s translation and design workflows, Maxcess International’s global human resources team can now consume the quarterly newsletter in their target language. And, despite the difference in translation, each of the newsletters looks exactly like the source newsletter file, so Maxcess’s global stakeholders are able to read the company newsletter in the same format and layout.
