Examples of tourism translation work

Translation and revision for local tourism board

Our client is the official tourism agency for events in Yorkshire.

We were delighted to translate promotional material for large-scale events such as the Tour de Yorkshire and the Tour de France as well as visitor information for local tourist attractions from English into French, German and Dutch. We worked closely with our specialist tourism translators to ensure the message carried the same level of relevance and evoked the same audience reaction as the original copy.

Translation of phrasebooks for travel guides

Our client is an award-winning global publisher.

We were asked to produce phrasebooks in Burmese, Sinhalese and Tamil, aimed at English-speaking tourists visiting Burma and Sri Lanka. In addition to translating some useful phrases and expressions, we also provided an introduction and pronunciation guide for each of these languages. The challenge was asking native speakers of these languages to produce a pronunciation guide from an English reader’s perspective. Furthermore, it was essential that the translators had a solid understanding of the English sounds and intonation. Our translators therefore worked alongside native English speakers in order to ensure that the text read naturally.
