Mother Tongue: The Art and Science of Transcreation

Don’t worry, they’ll tell you what it is. 

Hosts Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and Patrick Bosek, Co-Founder & CEO at Jorsek, makers of easyDITA, chat with Chris Hodgson, the Managing Director of Mother Tongue, about transcreation. 

Transcreation, for starters, is the process of adapting or reconfiguring content from one culture to another, while transferring meaning and maintaining intent, style, and voice. 

Leagues easier said than done, our guest will review the art and science of transcreation and how it impacts the content we develop. Going beyond language, culture, and content, they’ll explore the necessity of creating content that transcends borders, providing meaning and value to all audiences. 

Brew your favorite cup and we’ll see you there!
