De várias formas, a saber:

- to banalize;
- to render or make (something = algo) banal or trite, worn-out or commonplace;
- to trivialize;
- to make (something = algo) lose originality or freshness by overuse or indiscriminate use;
- to use (something) so much, that it soon loses interest, freshness, or force;
- to render or make (something) stale or vapid.
- to overgeneralize a concept in such a manner, that it soon wears out, loses public interest and attention, the media soon retreating to banalize yet another vogue concept, piece of news, the case of little Isabella thrown out of a window of a high-rise apartment bldg, a subject discussed ad nauseam over the radio, television, and the press clearly constituting an example of it. The media has hammered away at it for so long now, it makes you want to puke from hearing it over and over again.
- to turn (something) into a cliché or make or render it stale or hackneyed;
- to hackney (something) or get (something) hackneyed.

banalizar-se
- to occur so often as to have lost interest, freshness, or force or vitality or whatever one thinks of it

Na realidade, definição para "banalizar(-se)" não falta. Cada dicionário dá a sua.
