In-depth knowledge for market research

Focus groups and in-depth interviews (IDIs) reveal a wealth of information about respondents’ thoughts and opinions. These forums enable you to ask detailed questions about what participants feel, why they feel it, and what could change or influence their perceptions – fascinating and valuable stuff!

What is the value of focus group translation in market research?

As you will be aware, focus groups are a cornerstone of qualitative market research, originally conducted face to face but increasingly and perhaps more commonly now online. If you’re fielding in different markets, you’ll more than likely be conducting these groups in different languages. This means you’ll need to translate what’s being said in order to collate and compare information garnered across the different markets. A full word-for-word translation of everything that was said will help you understand the thoughts and feelings of your group participants and provide you with quotes to include in your final report. Alternatively you may just need a simple precis of the key points. Whichever option you choose, focus group translation will help you in preparation for your presentation to the end client.

Focus group translation from a leading market research translation agency

Three decades of partnership with the market research industry has taught us that the contents of a focus group are a key part of understanding customer motivations in greater depth than a simple questionnaire. Using fully-qualified mother-tongue linguists to guarantee quality, we can provide a full audio translation of the recorded group or, using the same linguists, perhaps a précis of the key points of the discussion will be sufficient to generate your final reports.

Melisa Fernandez Ares
Project Manager

I have worked with Janka a few times for this project, and she’s always been incredibly transparent, and taken time to ensure we are happy throughout the process of translation. Janka was checks in with me if a translator is unsure of certain things, which is much appreciated! It makes my job easier when coming to reviewing the final translations.
