The trademark of a commodity is like a person's name, which is the symbol of the commodity, and it is famous as the growth of the business. Many famous international trademarks have become the intangible assets and great wealth of enterprises. Successful trademarks cannot be separated from the following characteristics:
; Conforming to commodity characteristics;
It has symbolic significance and is easy to make people associate.
It is easy to remember;
Lang lang, etc.
With the growing international trade in goods, trademarks are becoming more and more international. From one language to another, the brand must retain the essence of the original and conform to the consumer's trademark psychology. In contrast to the other, the purpose of the above is to achieve the realization of a word, which requires the application of a comprehensive knowledge of language, marketing and aesthetics. In the process of the combination of the sound and the meaning, pay attention to the choice of the phonetic color and meaning of the words to achieve the satisfactory effect. Let's start with a few examples of success.
The more famous example is Cocacola in the United States, which is known as "Coca-Cola", which preserves the syllables and resounding of the original word, and makes it known as a beverage trademark. This is to give the original meaning of the word to sound color, which makes the human taste infinite, can be said that the effect exceeded the original name; And "coke" has become synonymous with drinks in modern society, which can be seen in the cultural penetration of its name.
Such as the world famous men's clothing trademark Goldlion again, this is the "lucky lion", but is to make the goods more add the splendid style, and meet the psychological, people are longing for geely, the pursuit of luxury will keep gold meaning; The word "lion" is used to extract the sound technique, and the combination of the two has a famous brand of "golden power" in China. Not only magnificent, but also the meaning of great Italy. Although the original intention is different, its purpose, function and effect are consistent.
The familiar American sports series Nike. The phonetic symbol for [' naiki:], goddess of victory in Greek mythology, the name is meant to, but if the note at the "nai" or "na" such as, many Chinese consumers will be very confusing, I don't know its meaning. Old in imitation of its syllable, and considering the sportswear should has the characteristics of long wear resistance, it became a "Nike", the meaning of both strong durability, and contains the meaning of the enemy will be resistance, this also coincides with original intention goddess of victory.
There are many other examples that are worth enumerating, such as "Truly", the word "first", "after" and "xinli". The word "Accord" is the trademark of a watch, the first word is taken and the latter is the meaning. And Fiyta is the model of "flying yada".
From the aesthetic psychology, once people enter the sense of the sense of rhythm, there will be a kind of expectation. The rhyme in the poem, the ratio of the composition in the article, the repetition of objects in the composition of the photographic composition, etc., are both the satisfaction of this kind of psychology and the means to make oneself beautiful.
In fact, trademarks depend heavily on this psychology. The name is not only in terms of words, tones, but also in terms of meaning, and in the sense that it is more demanding, which determines the success or failure of the name. In the accumulation of limited materials, I find that many names only pay attention to one face and ignore the combination and collocation of the two. That often seems baffling.
Pizza Hut is now a "Pizza Hut", in the sense that it is out of the taste of fast food, in the paste color lost the Chinese people to its original familiarity and affinity. Rather than a ` ` pizza "reality," pizza "is a sound," cake "used to describe the kind of hot food; This can be used to express Italy as the home of the food, and the reputation of the Leaning Tower of Pisa to evoke the beautiful scenery of Italy.
Such as two examples of pure tone, Sportsman bicycle and Unlsports sneakers, the name of the former on the market for "SiBoZi man", the latter for the "new homestead", if it is not familiar with products of the spleen, who will put the two names associated with their products? It is suggested that the former should be changed to "healthy will" to take its health swiftness. The latter is changed to "excellent run" to take advantage of the movement, wear comfortable meaning, and both can show the character of the commodity, the tone color also accords with people psychological request.
In the process of collecting trademark cases, the author gradually summed up the lessons of some successful names and failed cases, and proposed the following techniques for reference in trademark.
. Save the sound. The foreign language trademark in Chinese is easy to use two or three words, the two syllables conform to Chinese aesthetic habits and the development trend of The Times; The three word trademarks originated from the traditional Chinese characters, such as "tong ren tang, quanjude", "rice fragrant village" and so on. Therefore, the Chinese name can reduce the multi-syllable of the original name as two or three words. If Pentax is "Pentax", McDonald's; For "McDonald's", Sprite "Sprite", "home care" Aquafresh for toothpaste, nowadays there is a kind of Stefanel Sha of America, now is ", "more, then according to the above principles, bad" spinning"
In addition, after the original name of the main syllable, can be added in accordance with the need to conform to the product characteristics or the key meaning of the word, to highlight the product's publicity, to attract consumers. For example, Rock records are "rolling stone", Power soap is "er skin", Colgate mouthguard and teeth cleaning products are "Colgate" etc. Of course, when you add words, you must pay attention to the meaning and color of the words, or you will get more and more of them. ,
. The choice of words in a certain extent from the formerly known as the syllable, looking for relevant goods of words, but don't dwell on similar in tone and imitation, such as Ricon for "Canon" for "ricoh, Canon, both are trademarks of photography and printing equipment; Seiko clock is "jinggong", Comfort clothing softener is "gold spinning", Reebok sportswear is "Reebok". Safeguard soap is "comfort of the skin" and so on. Interestingly Dove a trademark, is the brand of soap, and the brand of chocolate, who in the different word choice can only be taken to distinguish, the former as "Dove", take its the meaning of embellish skin fragrance; The latter is "dove", in conjunction with its slogan "milk fragrance, silk feeling".
In the same way, Chinese products should also take into account the cultural habits and aesthetic psychology of foreign consumers when they become foreign languages. In the past few years, when our country exported the product brand, it was not much consideration for this one, so it appeared that the "White elephant" battery was White lephant, and the result was not available in the us market. The awhite elephant is a "useless and cumbersome thing" in English. Again as "sailing" carpet, also is the traditional export products, into Junk, was the same fate, to a Junco survived, the reason is that Junk in addition to the sailing of the accident, there are rubbish, rags. The more successful cases are:
"Leche" is Lucky; "Skin beauty" is Skinice, which reflects the characteristics of skin care products. The drink is Belmerry.
These examples fully illustrate that the product's trademark is a symbol of quality, which is the representative of product image and intellectual property rights, which should not only be considered in the name of the name, but also should be carefully and carefully in time. Because the reclusive of merchandise trade mark is also related to the international image of the enterprise and whether it can be launched in the competitive market.
Of course, trademark is by no means a simple question. Sometimes a good name has the flavor of nature, but this article put forward the point of view was simply trying to mention commodity producers and operators and workers' attention, that is, when the trademark is great in the article, can keep improving.
A good product, with a pleasant name, is the icing on the cake. In today's famous brand awareness, why not go up and down the trade mark?
.字眼的选择可在一定程度上脱离原名的音节，寻找切合商品的字词，而不要拘泥于在音色上的相似和模仿，如Ricon为“理光”、Canon为“佳能”，两者都是摄影和复印器材的商标; Seiko钟表为“精工”、Comfort衣物柔顺剂为“金纺”、Reebok运动服装为“锐步”。 Safeguard香皂为“舒肤佳”等。有趣的是Dove这一商标，既是香皂的品牌，又是巧克力的商标，者在时只能是采取不同字眼的选择来加以区分，前者作“多芬”，取其润肤芬芳之意;后者为“德芙”，配合其词“牛奶香浓，丝般感受”。
同样的道理，中国产品的商标在成外文时，也要兼顾外国消费者的文化习惯和审美心理，不能简单地音或是意了事。前些年我国者在出口产品商标时，对于这一-点考虑得并不多，于是才出现了把“白象”电池为White lephant，结果在美国市场上无人间津。原来在英语中awhite elephant是“无用而累赘的东西”。再如“帆船”地毯，也是传统出口产品，成Junk，遭到同样的命运，后改为Junco才幸免于难，原因是Junk除了帆船之意外，还有垃圾，破烂的意思。比较成功的例有：
