Content relevance is tested abroad and may not be relevant to all countries where the communication is published. McQuail in his book Introduction to Mass Communication, mentions that different cultures accept the same media content with different effects. I will use a case study for the analysis of intercultural communication of centrally managed brands that will examine the difference in responses of Facebook users to centrally created marketing communication of the Felix and ProPlan brands that belong under the umbrella brand Purina. I divided the case study into two parts, the first part will be devoted to the content analysis of documents, statistics and already existing research from which I formulated research questions.

First of all, we are going to introduce our topic in the context of the existing research made in translation studies, media studies and marketing communications theory. The empirical part of this thesis consists of a case study of a selected Czech PR agency.
