Travel & Tourism Translation FAQs

What is travel and tourism translation?

Travel and tourism translation is the process of translating materials within the travel and tourism industry from their original language into one or more target language(s), while ensuring the tone, meaning, and cultural relevance of the original is preserved. This may include all manner of materials, from travel brochures to hotel sign-in instructions; from booking websites to scripts or audio guides for attraction tours.

In an industry whose lifeblood is the bringing together of people from different cultures and geographical backgrounds, effective communication is particularly important. Travel and tourism translation gives businesses operating in this industry the ability to communicate effectively with a geographically and linguistically diverse client base, giving them access to the information they need to function and thrive in new contexts.

How does travel and tourism translation work?

For businesses in travel and tourism, a key goal is to give customers the information they need to engage with your services and enjoy themselves in their destination. And, while many places cater for English and some other languages, and some tourists will be able to speak the language of the place they visit, the businesses who work on the assumption that people will need help communicating are more likely to create a positive experience.

At The Translation People, we work with travel and tourism businesses to understand their needs and put together a translation project accordingly. We review your objectives and the types of materials that need translating, and assign these out to expert translators who have the linguistic and industry experience required to create high-quality, highly accurate translations. We understand the importance of industry experience alongside linguistic expertise in creating translations that capture the nuance and cultural sensitivities required.

How much does translation cost in travel and tourism?

Each translation project is unique, and this is especially true in the context of travel and tourism. So rather than offer a one-size-fits-all estimate, we prefer to create bespoke quotes for each enquiry we receive. If you get in touch with our team and provide information about what you’re looking to do, we will review your enquiry and come back to you with a tailored quote that takes into account:

  • Type of material(s) required for translation
  • The complexity, including word count
  • The origin and target language(s), and number of language pairings
  • Your desired turnaround time

Other factors will come into play as well, and if you consider us for subsequent projects we will be able to incorporate improvements in our internal efficiency into your price. We achieve this by creating sophisticated translation memory databases for each client, where translations of words and phrases associated with your brand are made available for reuse. This means that translators working on future projects can save time, and we pride ourselves on passing these savings onto you.

How does travel translation support the travel industry?

Through translating the plethora of materials required for the travel and tourism industry to function, businesses are able to provide a welcoming and informative experience for travellers from a diverse range of backgrounds. Given that the industry relies on travellers having an enjoyable time and looking to travel again, everything that contributes to this outcome plays a role in supporting the industry. And given that being able to understand what’s happening in the place you’re visiting can make or break your experience, translation services have a particularly significant role to play.

Which types of documents require translation in travel and tourism?

There are many examples of documents and materials that may require translation in the travel and tourism industry. Some examples of which include:

  • Brochures giving information about destinations, whether online or in print
  • Travel and audio guides that enable visitors to explore independently when arriving in a destination
  • Itineraries which give travellers information about their journeys and holidays, helping them to get where they need to be
  • Terms and conditions to ensure that travellers have a firm understanding of the terms of their bookings
  • Customer satisfaction surveys to ensure that your business can collect and learn from the insights of past customers

This is just a small sampling of materials, and is far from exhaustive. To find out whether we can help you to translate your materials, get in touch.
