Translation for the travel sector

The tourism industry is the world’s number one economic sector and is expanding rapidly. In 2005, almost 800 million tourists from many different countries made international trips (source WTO: World Tourism Organization). By 2020, the number of tourists is expected to double, reaching a total of 1.6 billion travellers. This is why it is important, perhaps even essential, to communicate in the language of these travellers.

With BeTranslated’s translation services, you can communicate in multiple languages and generate greater interest in your products and services.

By having your website, brochures and other documentation translated into different languages, you will keep yourself well ahead of your competitors.

BeTranslated’s translators can also offer expertise in the following areas:

Sustainable tourism

When handling translations of tourism-related texts, travel destination presentations, tourism websites, etc., BeTranslated carefully selects its translators based on:

Their professional experience in the tourism, travel and leisure sector
