Translations for museums

As a museum, you are required to provide a wide range of services:

  • providing a public reception desk
  • creating guided tours
  • exhibiting permanent collections
  • setting up temporary exhibitions
  • coordinating debates and conferences
  • designing promotional materials
  • etc.

Each of these services usually requires multilingual communication to meet the needs of a growing number of international visitors, primarily tourists. BeTranslated has access to an international network of specialist translators, who can meet the specific needs of museums.

Art, History, Science and Culture

A museum's collection will often include items related to the arts, history, science, technology and culture. Museum translations therefore require in-depth, precise knowledge in each of these fields.

BeTranslated's translators are selected based on their expertise and the specific requirements of each project. This means that you will always receive an accurate translation that uses the correct vocabulary.

BeTranslated can translate your:

  • collection presentations
  • item descriptions
  • information brochures
  • information boards
  • guided tour plans
  • audio tours
  • art and history books…
  • press releases
  • conference programmes
  • archive documents 

Exchange knowledge and works

As well as presenting pieces to the public, a museum's work also involves conservation, restoration, inventory management and research.

Curators and their staff are therefore often required to exchange information and items with other museums abroad

BeTranslated can help to simplify this process by managing the translation of letters, files, archives, etc. with a quick turnaround time.

Reach out to the world

Your website introduces visitors to your activities and the content of your collections. Yet without a multilingual version of your site, you won't be able to tell the rest of the world what your museum has to offer.

BeTranslated has access to translators who are specialists in information and communication technologies. They will translate your entire website, working directly with various file types such as HTML, PHP, ASP or MySql database exports in CSV or XLS format, … and delivering an accomplished translation that is ready to publish online, in a range of different languages.
