Language projects for tourism

We don’t want to rub your nose in it, but we live in the world’s most beautiful city. There’s no doubt about it. Tourists are as much a part of our daily lives here in Cape Town as Table Mountain is. But we’re nevertheless well aware that there’s more to tourism than sun, sand and sunburn.

We support international hotel chains, city marketing agencies and tour operators in their daily work through our language projects.

Product description translations or image campaigns in several languages, coding your latest customer satisfaction survey, or even translating your Ts & Cs – we understand that your copy provokes emotion, whilst also needing to reflect reality. And that tourism might look easy, but behind the scenes, it’s seriously hard work.

As one of the world’s top travelling nations, there’s no doubt that Germans are a great target market. We translate the content from your international partners for the home market, but also German texts into various other languages.

We have connections all across the globe. And not only because we ourselves love travelling and meeting people, but because we have a top quality recruitment manager on the team!

You can take it for granted, of course, that your assignments will only be fulfilled by native speakers.

Nevertheless, every assignment is reviewed by a second translator or transcriptionist and given the blessing of our project managers before we send you the finished article.

Our six-eyes principle has stood us in good stead for years now.

Here are the areas where we support our tourism customers:
