Case Study: CenterBrain
- ABOUT CenterBrain
- THE CCJK SOLUTION
CenterBrain Partners was formed in 1991. With the creative leadership of its president, the company pioneered a number of approaches designed to consult the consumer to stimulate and shape creative positioning. These approaches have been formalized as part of the many products CenterBrain Partners offers today. The products are all designed to accomplish two objectives: Drive top line growth and get to market faster. Since 1991 the CenterBrain Process has created positioning for over 170 brands, products or services, yielding over $4 billion in incremental top line revenue for Fortune 100 brands and smaller, family-owned entrepreneurial organizations.
In 2009, the leader of Center Brain has published a book named “CenterBrain Thinking”. It is a practical guide to creatively positioning company’s brand, product or service. In order to share the successful experience with Chinese enterprises, the leader want to teach and consult in Guangzhou with this book. But he was uncertain whether the book should be translated into Cantonese firstly and Mandarin soon later. Thus our client would appreciate a expertise in this area. Moreover, the delivery of Chinese translations of “CenterBrain Thinking” must reach the top quality and get ready for publishing. The text in this book should also be easy to understand by Chinese audience.
CCJK Solutions for CenterBrain
CCJK offered professional suggestions to the client. The best choice is to translate the book in Mandarin only. With the popularity of Mandarin, even the native-born citizen in Guangzhou can read, write and communicate with people in Mandarin freely. There are also a huge amount of people who came from all over China work and live in Guangzhou city; Mandarin is widely used here. Moreover most written and officially materials were published in Mandarin, not Cantonese.
The original book is in PDF format. The format and style of the translated file should comply with the original English book. Our working process is like the following:
