Leisure & Entertainment Translation FAQs

What is leisure and entertainment translation?

Leisure and entertainment translation is the translation of materials pertinent to this industry from their original language to one or more target languages. In an industry with such a vast array of media types and formats, leisure and entertainment translation projects are often complex and multifaceted: The Translation People stand ready to help you, whatever the nature of your project.

More than ever, entertainment and leisure is a global industry. People and companies create and consume media in many languages, and there is increasing demand for interconnectivity and immediate access. As a result, consumers want the option to watch or listen to media in their native language, rather than putting up with poor quality dubs. Entertainment and leisure translation services make it possible for audiences to engage with content quickly and easily, without any loss of quality or enjoyment.

How does leisure and entertainment translation work?

Translation is about more than finding a literal translation for words: it’s about capturing and preserving the intent and nuance the words contain. As a result, leisure and entertainment translation often involves lots of localisation, too: that is, the process of ensuring that meaning and intent is preserved as much as possible. When translating films, audio or other leisure and entertainment materials into a new target language, this process ensures that the end user gets just as much enjoyment and engagement as users in the original language.

How do you handle translation of slang in an entertainment context?

A fine example of what we discussed in the previous answer is slang, and other idiomatic speech. In leisure and entertainment contexts, this type of language is far more likely to appear than in formal or technical contexts, and as a result, translators working in this space must have a level of linguistic expertise and cultural understanding that lets them effectively identify, translate, and preserve such language.

To handle this, we only work with translators who have the requisite levels of expertise and experience to achieve high quality, accurate translations every time. We also look for those translators who have a high degree of familiarity with the area of leisure and entertainment they’re translating within, whether it be an art-house film, a football game, a comic book, or something else entirely. We believe that this level of expertise and engagement is fundamental for effective translation that will resonate with its intended audience.

How much does leisure and entertainment translation cost?

Each translation project is different, and as a result, so are our quotes. Rather than offer a one-size-fits-all estimate that sets unrealistic expectations, we instead take time to put together tailored quotes on a project-by-project basis. To find out what you might pay for our leisure and entertainment translation services, please get in touch with our team. One of our experts will review your project and come back to you with a price that reflects its nature and your objectives.

We also pride ourselves on offering savings for repeat projects, thanks to our internal translation memory processes. This repository of translations of terms and phrases associated with your brand allows translators to refer back to existing translations where suitable rather than creating them each time. The resulting savings in time spent translating are passed onto our customers.

Which areas of leisure and entertainment require translation services?

The better question is which areas do not require translation services in some capacity. In an increasingly connected world, any business which is not able to translate its offering limits its ability to engage with new markets. It follows then that all businesses in the leisure and entertainment industry can leverage translation to expand their reach and potential audience base.

Some examples of specific areas that may require translation services include:

  • Film and visual media: whether it be translating audio (dubbing) or providing text translations (subtitling), translation services greatly expand the potential viewership of any visual media.
  • Live broadcasts: particularly relevant for sporting events, our live captioning and interpreting services can ensure that audio can be understood in real-time.
  • Video games: as well as translation, video games often require localisation to make sure that their content makes sense to and resonates with audiences in different geographic regions.
  • Promotional materials: before entertainment and leisure products reach the customer they must go through many layers of promotion and marketing, from industry events through to consumer advertising. Translating these materials offers a touchpoint through which prospective customers in new markets can first engage with your project.

This list is far from exhaustive, and our expert leisure and entertainment translators have helped many businesses in the industry to translate their materials into new languages. To find out how we can help you, please get in touch with our team. We’ll be happy to discuss your project and advise you on the best way to move forward.
