Transcreation, examples from an online newsletter, #5

French:  Triton : Le nouveau navire du DRASSM
English: H2X delivers archaeological research boat

The original focuses on the organisation (DRASSM), its activities and its vessels.
The English focuses on the organisation's activities and the types of vessels it operates while highlighting the boatbuilder's openness to the client's highly specialised needs.

Transcreation: Different readership, different approach.

I will be discussing how and why I do all this at the following conference in Lisbon on 17 June.

Please note that the article on Etienne Lacroix was produced by the company.

Please note also that I have informed the CMF that their message "Towards the Blue Growth" desperately needs to be first withdrawn, then rewritten by an English-speaking specialist.
A reasonable retranslation back into French might read:
Vers l'excroissance bleue.

The other articles were translated and adapted, or transcreated, by me.
