IMAGINEM Goes Global with Four Languages
IMAGINEM, the eyewear media brand for independent eyewear, has now been launched in multi-language issues, including English, Italian, French and German.
IMAGINEM is the first and only eyewear magazine to reach its audience in multiple language versions, making it a global publication.
IMAGINEM was originally conceived as an international collaboration with partners in North America and Europe. The addition of multiple language versions is an extension of the founders’ international concept and reflects the global nature of the superior quality artisanal and fashionable independent eyewear market.
“IMAGINEM reflects superior aesthetics and original independent eyewear designs from the world over, so it’s only fitting that we celebrate independent eyewear design in different languages and cultures”, says Milan-based IMAGINEM Editorial Director. Alexandra Amico.
IMAGINEM content, originally created in English and Italian, has been expertly translated and edited into French and German.
According to publisher, David Pietrobon, “As a Canadian publisher we are accustomed to working in two languages. Providing the magazine in additional languages is a natural extension of our current processes. Our European partnership helped to make the transition to a global publisher seamless.”
In addition to text translation, each of the online articles is also narrated online with a single click. IMAGINEM’s magazine narration is powered by BlueToad and Amazon’s Polly’s Neural Text-to-Speech (NTTS) Newscaster style voice. Narration allows a enriched user experience in the readers native language.
Readers may view (and hear) IMAGINEM in their language of choice and can link to other languages from the drop-down menu of each language version. A global gateway landing page has been created to provide access to all the language issues of IMAGINEM.
Partners interested in languages other than the current four are invited to reach out to the publisher to discuss opportunities.
IMAGINEM is a new optical omni-channel media brand that celebrates the world of independent eyewear by connecting eyewear designers, independent eye care professionals and eyewear fashionistas.
The IMAGINEM network consists of a premium quality print and digital replica magazines in four languages an exquisitely curated Instagram page, an interactive bold website and digital e-newsletter communications.
