Q: I do not have any printed sales materials available in other languages, and I have Branded activities scheduled for markets where I do not speak the language. Can I create new materials for these upcoming promotions and request Branded reimbursement?
A: A company can be reimbursed for printed sales materials for the markets approved in their Branded application. All promotional materials in a foreign language must show an English translation. Therefore, a company should submit the English version of the materials along with the foreign printed sales materials. If a company has not submitted a Branded application and been approved for a certain market, an Activity Plan Amendment Request (APAR) form must be completed and approved by the Branded Department before the promotional activity takes place.
