Food Label Translation Services

Available in 200 languages, food label translation services convert your product labels for the right audience. Consumers want to know what’s in the food they’re purchasing. Translations have technical accuracy and are used by leading retailers and food manufacturers. Translation projects are delivered by native speakers, who are fluent in two languages and are familiar with the cultures associated with the both the native and target languages.

Food label translation differs from other translation services because it incorporates marketing copy, product information and legal phrases to comply with federal and international regulations. Many countries have strict policies for nutrition labels and packaging, so it’s important to be aware of the differences to keep your consumers safe, healthy and loyal to your brand.

*Note: Each translation project differs in language, content and specifications. The following are examples only. 

Marketing Translation

Phrases like “skinny” are common on food products associated with weight loss. However, the word “skinny” makes sense to an English speaker but may not translate to other languages. A culturally competent translator makes sure that all messages that are important to a brand are accurately relayed.

Food vs Medicine vs Supplement

Some products that are considered supplements in the United States may be considered a medicine in other countries. Warnings and disclosures for the FDA and foreign countries are included to comply with legal policies. Highly focused translation services make sure that products are accurately labeled and in compliance with local regulations.

Units of Measure

In Canada, net quantities must be labeled in the metric system for Canadian products whereas in the United States we use the U.S. Standard system. Bilingual countries like Canada, require mandatory information in both English and French. IU ensures that product information is accessible to all consumers.
