New email protection service for confidential translations

Posted by AAC Global news on 12/02/18 06:09

AAC Global now offers secure email communication for its translation clients through its partnership with the Finnish cybersecurity company, Deltagon.

Deltagon’s e-mail encryption solution lets you secure your e-mail messaging easily and reliably when sending confidential information for translation. Adding the e-mail encryption is straightforward, and sending a secure message can happen with as little as one extra click.

Petri Lehmus, Managing Partner at AAC Global, explains why AAC Global chooses to partner with Deltagon: “Compared with many other encryption solutions that involve accessing a portal where the emails are stored, Deltagon’s clear, simple, and effective solution means we don’t have to require our customers to keep extra login details, download or install an encryption program, take additional IT security training, or make any costly or disruptive changes to their security processes.”

Three ways to get photos for your website

Posted by AAC Global news on 12/10/16 08:48

It is a basic tenet of digital marketing that using the right photos on your website will trigger positive mental images that support your brand image and set the scene for the visit to your site.

The difficult part is choosing "the right photos" that fulfill their role as marketing content—because all of the content on your website should support and promote your brand image. You need to know what effect you are trying to create with your graphic design. Are you looking for contradictory effects from your website background images, for example?

Companies often want their website images to convey a sense of the brand as both professional, yet personal; impressive, yet approachable; high quality, yet good value for money. That's a difficult task for any one photo to achieve!

 

An experienced AD knows how to find the right photos quickly and efficiently – and how to avoid the usual pitfalls and “stock photo stiltedness” that can harm the visual appeal of your website.

 

Ideally, the visual impact of your website images should make visitors feel included, intrigued and encouraged to enter and take a closer look. Conversely, poorly chosen photos will send the wrong kind of signal to visitors, who will leave before finding what they were looking for in the first place. Never underestimate the power of images as marketing content.

Creating the right kind of brand image mustn't be left to chance. So, where do you look for the right kind of photos, whether as website background images, brand visualization or the visual elements of your product portfolio?

To make things easier for you, we have listed the most common ways of procuring images for a website (and other kinds of marketing material as well). For each alternative, we have listed the upsides and downsides that you should consider when selecting your preferred method.
