The Facebook Ads Translation Guide: reach a whole new audience

Translate your successful campaigns into another language, and you’ll reach a lucrative, untapped audience.  It’s a very effective way to scale up, and surprisingly enough, it requires very little added effort.

Not many people are able to speak multiple languages fluently, and finding a reliable and accurate translation can be difficult.  That’s why Moteefe has created a guide to help the community out.  The new Facebook Ads Translation Guide contains commonly used phrases for marketing a campaign.  It’s been designed to help you reach European markets and send your sales sky-high!

Facebook Ads Translation Guide: the details

Our guide provides sellers with translations in 13 different languages: English, German, French, Dutch, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Danish, Norwegian, Swedish, Finnish, Polish and Czech.

It covers common phrases targeted towards your audience regarding ads, campaigns and retargeting.  Some of the phrases available include:

  • PLEASE USE THE SIZE GUIDELINES TO CHECK YOUR SIZE BEFORE ORDERING!

  • For bigger sizes, select the S to 5XL option.

  • Click the GREEN BUTTON to select your size and style

Putting the Facebook Ads Translation Guide to use

After downloading the PDF file, use the steps below to help you translate the phrases. 

Select your language

Select the required language by clicking on the flag of the country that speaks the language you are seeking.  Alternatively, you can scroll through the guide.

Copy the text

Select text and Copy:

The benefits of translating your campaign

Facebook Ads Translation Guide: three examples of T-shirts with German messaging

Ultimately, by offering your products in another language, you will be opening the door to a new demographic.  As a result, a new audience is available to purchase your products.  With an increased pool of targeted customers, this move can greatly increase the number of sales you make.

The potential for selling Print on Demand in European markets is huge.  A lot of sellers focus their marketing towards the USA and overlook Europe.  This means that there is a lot less competition in the European Print on Demand market. You can see this reflected in the cost of advertising.  Your budget will go much further in Europe, letting you run more ads and reach more people.

Translating your successful campaigns will put you on the road to building your very own, global Print on Demand business.

The Moteefe Ugly Christmas Sweatshirt Design Tutorial

The Moteefe Ugly Christmas Sweatshirt Design Tutorial

The Moteefe Ugly Christmas Sweatshirt Design Tutorial

Step 1

Firstly, Download and install the font file named ‘xmas_sweater_stitch.otf’ from here.

Step 2

Now you’ll need to download the Photoshop file and double click to open. Note: the bottom layer should replicate the Sweatshirt colour. This is to help you visualize how the design will look on the sweatshirt 

Step 3

You’ll see the layer labeled ‘Your Text‘ which is the area you will want to change. Select the Type Tool or Press the T to enable you to type

Top Tip: Depending on the length of the word, you might want to change the size of the ornaments on either side to accommodate the spacing. Press Command T and drag from one corner of the object with the direct selection tool tool to maintain the correct proportions of the shape when adjusting.

Step 5

Now you’ve changed the text, you can add your niche image! You can commission artwork via websites such as Fiverr of if you’d like the Moteefe Design department to take care of this for you, please send an email to sellersupport@moteefe.com describing your design brief including as much detail as possible.

Step 6

You’ve added your artwork and got it at the right size and positioning, now you’ll want to remove the stitches that interfere with the artwork, just how real knitted sweater would work. There are several ways to do this but for a less ‘permanent’ way of removing the unwanted stitches, let’s use the Mask tool. Select the layer ‘stick pattern’ and click mask. Now press B to activate the brush tool. Simply brush away the unwanted stitches

Top Tip: The mask tool enables you to ‘mask’ elements that you don’t want to appear. It’s a non destructive way of working as you’ll be able to undo your working or remove the mask all together. Whilst on the masked layer, use the brush tool with the colour Black #000000 selected and the colour White #ffffff to edit

Step 7

Looking great! Once you’re happy with how it looks, click save and we are now ready to export the png that will be ready to upload straight into the Moteefe builder. Don’t forget to turn off the bottom layer that we’ve labelled as ‘Sweater Colour’ as we only want to send transparent Png’s to print. 

Go to File > Export > Export as…

Step 8

Now the Export as dialogue box will appear where you’ll need to make sure a PNG will be exported with the Transparency option checked. (This is default when you select PNG) It’s the only image format that supports transparency, and that’s what our printing machines like to work with! 

Now click export and there you have it, your very own Ugly Christmas Sweatshirt design now ready to upload straight into the Moteefe builder. Great job!
