Mangrol Multimedia at New Delhi World Book Fair 2017
Tuesday 11 January 2017
Visit us at HALL 12A STALL 160
Meeting so many exciting people, who share the same interest as you, at one
place, is a prized situation. National Book Trust’s New Delhi World Book Fair
2017 (NDWBF 2017) offers one such opportunity where book lovers and book
publishers, writers, translators and their seekers, media services provider and
those who wish to avail these services, come together. Mangrol Multimedia
had been at the last year’s event too, but then, it was just a visit to it. This time
around, we are one of the participants and are showcasing our services at
HALL 12A STALL 160. The feeling is, we must say, extraordinary in all sense.
Being service providers for varied kind of media related services, we always wish to meet talents from different arena. Not only prospects but we also like meeting content and design creators, who could be aspirants or established ones. That’s because growth for us is always about joining hands with more people, becoming helpful to others and evolving with each new day. Thankfully, the day brought many interesting visitors to our stall. In fact, the turnaround was more than expected for us, and many of our visitors showed interest in our translation, trans-creation, social media management and web designing services. While many of them were from New Delhi only, lot others were from various parts of the country, i.e. from Meerut, Lucknow, Mumbai, Gujarat, Ghaziabad, Punjab, Uttarakhand, Madhya Pradesh, etc.
Many visitors appreciated our process of translation and appreciated our costing as well. To a few, who insisted to give per page pricing only, and not per word, we had to explain that one just cannot make such an estimate without looking at the job. If we quote more for a page with lesser content, it would be wrong and if we quote less for a page that has much more than usual words, it would be wrong.
We also learnt that many publishers as well as people associated with this business, are yet to empower themselves with the power of Internet. Either they had no website, social media connectivity, or they had it of so basic and obsolete nature that they just could not help them grow. Those who asked us how to improve on this front, we explained them as much as time permitted. Few visitors also asked us to help them get into e-commerce, though they had no proper idea whether it would be useful to them or not. We believe that one should enter e-commerce either when s/he has fair knowledge of its operation, or could afford outsourcing services, but not just because the entire world is rushing in that direction.
One of our visitors, who had been to many stalls before coming to our stall, and who wanted to get few books translated from one language to the other, appreciated our process as well as quality assurance. He further said that quality and timely delivery matter more in translation jobs than just pricing. We salute his understanding!
We also had few visitors from co-participants and few of them also showed interest in our services. That was truly humbling and we assured them the best of services at the most competitive pricing.
By evening, we had met so many people that the total number of our visitors on Tuesday was thrice the total visitors we met during the first three days! It was really very encouraging and enough to feel satisfied from within. What’s more, we also met few translators of languages we already handle and also, few for languages we are planning to add to our kitty soon. What’s more one would expect from an event like New Delhi World Book Fair 2017!
