Did you know that translation plays a major role in the tourism industry, which is the world’s highest earning sector?
In 2022, there were over 100 million tourists who came to Spain, which was an 187% increase compared to 2020. Of those 100 million, 15.6 million came from the UK, 8 million came from Canada, and nearly 3 million came from the United States.
What’s more, there were twice as many visitors in Spain in 2022 than the previous year.
However, we can’t ignore the fact that nearly 1 billion people from all over the world also travelled the globe in 2022, which was over double the amount of travellers in 2020.
Wouldn’t you agree that now is the perfect time to reevaluate your marketing and translation strategies?
It will come as no surprise to you that tourism translation for documents and webpages often requires a cultural awareness, alongside professional expertise in the field.

With that being said, we mustn’t forget the languages of our dearest European neighbours, such as French, Italian, and even German.
Despite there being many tourists who live many miles away, it doesn’t stop them coming to visit Spain. In fact, statistics show that the number of Chinese tourists in Spain rose by a staggering 420% in the first six months of 2023.
Despite the Covid pandemic causing the figures to drop, Spain is a destination which Chinese tourists are very fond of. Taking this into account, why not translate your means of communication and your website into Chinese?
Translations for travel agencies
For travel agencies, translation is a key element when trying to improve their visibility. As they export their products abroad, they are forced to implement sale strategies that are tailored to other countries, because of the importance of comprehension in their line of work.
In order to achieve these goals, the first step is to establish a chain of multilingual communication, which will allow your agency to expand further afield.
A webpage will increase the amount of business you get, and by making it available to your clients, they can learn some more information, and also book the following services online:
- Commercial or private flights, train tickets, etc.
- Breaks and stays
- Boat trips
- Hotels and hostels
- Guided tours
As a travel agent, it would be detrimental if you didn’t include your potential services within your website, as this can lead to a lot more sales abroad. The translation of your website’s content allows you to attract a lot more clients, and the best bit about it, it’s all done at the touch of a button.
Translations for tourist information
As a representative of your community, you are responsible for bringing various activities into the light, by actively promoting them, in order to showcase the diverse culture and heritage your town/city/country has to offer. This in turn boosts the local economy.
These activities are becoming more and more orientated towards the growing number of international tourists, and range across many fields, such as heritage, culture, history, festivals, local traditions, local specialities, and technical or industrial advancements.

Therefore, BeTranslated’s translators place significant importance on respecting your editorial and writing style.
In general, leaflets and travel guides contain an enormous amount of information to translate. Translation tools allow our teams to carry out the translation rapidly and effectively.
With their help, we guarantee that the information will be translated efficiently, and most importantly, that the text will be fully coherent.
