Tourism – The importance of translation

Tourism is a hugely important and ever-growing globalized industry whose client-base is situated all over the world. Therefore it has become imperative to have accurately translated text and documents in a wide-range of languages for most if not all; hotels, tour operators, travel agencies and tourist-signposttourist spots such as museums.

The translation of tourism-related text and documents allows tour operators, hotels, travel agencies and other companies from the tourism industry to reach potential clients in all parts of the world.

There are many forms of literature and advertising used by the tourism industry such as newspaper and magazine adverts, websites, and brochures and leaflets.

Giving precise information of the service/product by means of translating this sort of material is an excellent strategy for luring awareness in addition to buyer attention. Other than just promoting, try providing more info in a variety of languages since it is often the finer details that persuade a potential customer to purchase your services/products.

Another important aspect to consider is to know your audience inside-out. Are you translating material for purely tourists? Or is it for staff such as employees at a tourism agency? To know your audience is to understand exactly what they need/want. With this information you can be more successful with your multilingual projects.
