Evaluations of Bilingual Product Descriptions on Boxes
This study investigates the influence of bilingual product packaging descriptions on product evaluation. In an experimental study, the evaluation of a product with English-only package is compared to the evaluation of the same product in a bilingual package. The evaluation of the product in bilingual package was significantly lower. Ethnocentrism and prejudice are investigated as possible explanations for differential evaluations of products with English-only versus bilingual product descriptions. The effect of method of information processing is manipulated. Both ethnocentrism and prejudice affect evaluations of a product in bilingual package in peripheral processing but not in a central processing condition.
