In the tourism sector, translation services are a given. Everything from airport and hotel signage to maps and menus require the skills of translators who specialize in travel and tourism.

Although general translators can handle some translation projects for the tourism industry, in many cases, dedicated tourism translators are a better fit. Tourism industry translation requires an understanding of tourism-focused terminology as well as cultural sensitivity.

Trust your tourism and travel translations to GoTranscript, one of the largest online translation companies in the world. We offer unparalleled quality in all our services, including tourism translation.

Is English a universal language in the tourism industry?

Yes and no. People in certain parts of the world grow up learning English as a second language, whether for personal advancement or because their home area is a popular tourist destination. However, English isn't necessarily a common second language in all countries.

Furthermore, people's ability with English as a second language varies greatly. Although some speakers of English may be bilingual or fluent, others may have only conversational or the most basic skills. One can't assume that everybody will understand signage and instructions printed in English equally well.

What sets travel/tourism translation apart from other types of translation?

Travel/tourism translation bears a few characteristics that make it different from other translation needs.

First, translations in the tourism industry are often quite short, especially when it comes to signage. Signs range from one- and two-word directions, such as "exit" and "no smoking," to longer lists such as pool rules and buffet menus. Yet even the latter list-type signs must be written concisely to save space and maximize clarity
Second, some tourism and travel translations need to be written in a hospitable tone. While "no smoking" cuts to the chase, signs posted in a fitness room are better if they contribute to a guest's enjoyment of their stay. Experienced tourism translators take the context of message into consideration when they produce a translated text.
Third, translators who specialize in travel and tourism are careful to consider cultural differences. Languages spoken in some countries reflect different customs and etiquette regarding eating, toileting, and sleeping. An experienced translator takes these differences into account, being sure not to offend native speakers.

Industries and organizations that depend on high-quality tourism and travel translations

We've already mentioned a few, but here's a more complete list of all the types of businesses that depend on tourism translators:

  • Transportation
