A Leap Forward in Global Localization, Translation and Transcreation: Case Study

Our Client

realme, a global technology brand, lives by its guiding principle: ‘Dare to Leap.’ Founded in 2018, realme quickly became a force to be reckoned with in the smartphone industry, achieving a milestone of 100 million units shipped in 2021. Operating in 61 global markets, the company is committed to offering an intelligent and trendy lifestyle to the youth worldwide through its cutting-edge smartphones and AIoT products.

To ensure that its brand message resonates authentically and powerfully across diverse markets, realme partnered with Clearly Local. This collaboration solved realme’s challenges in translation and localization and elevated its content creation and transcreation strategies, enabling the brand to engage local markets professionally and trustworthily.

Global Localization, Translation and Transcreation

Transforming realme’s Localization Strategy

Initially, realme’s regional brand departments and PR teams proactively managed translation work for important and strategic content while outsourcing other tasks.

Considering realme’s rapid expansion and innovation, the company found itself in need of optimizing its translation processes. The company’s agile and ever-evolving teams had diverse talents but needed a dedicated localization department that could adapt to various product characteristics, blend in with national culture and language, and create reusable glossaries for future translations. This presented an exciting opportunity to unify translation styles and meet the high expectations of all stakeholders in a more streamlined manner.

KPI Mastery: Beyond the Numbers

While key performance indicators like Turnaround Time and On-time Delivery are standard metrics, realme sought a partner who could also excel in nuanced areas such as Quality Feedback Ratio, Communication, and Meeting Engagement.
