Leisure & Tourism Industry Overview

The Leisure and Tourism industry is continually growing and expected to grow further for many years to come. With hotel chains operating globally, hotel staff and visitors alike are naturally multilingual. This highlights the immense need for tourism translation services across a range of departments. These tourism translation services may include: internal communications aimed at hotel staff, externally facing press releases, translation for travel, customer notices and even entire websites.

Global Lingo works extensively within the Leisure and Tourism sector with a variety of different departments, including marketing, PR and communications, health and safety, risk, HR, legal and compliance teams, and investor relations, providing a variety of services. On our end, we work with incredible travel language translators to ensure high-quality, accurate results. Every travel language translator on our team is an experienced and dedicated linguist with significant expertise in the field of travel and tourism. For a tourist, the language and format of content within a new country is extremely difficult to navigate. That’s why we’re happy to offer translation for travel as well as a variety of other language services for the leisure and travel industries.

The Importance of Translation in Tourism

The importance of translation in tourism cannot be understated. Why? Because the very field of tourism is intrinsic with a diverse range of languages, cultures and people. Translation for travel is often necessary to speak the tourists’ language, communicate important needs and services to travelers, all while being accurate, clear and concise. This, in turn, helps international tourism expand on an annual basis.
