Translating for the Travel and Tourism Industry

We invited Oliver Lawrence of Incisive Translations, a committed CPD enthusiast and experienced translator based in Italy, to prepare a talk for us on translating for the travel and tourism industries. We are delighted to announce news of this webinar.

The presentation includes a description of this enjoyable and upbeat sector, and gives insights into the creativity required of the translator. There are examples of the types of copy a translator in this field is likely to encounter. The speaker provides an understanding of the target audience and the purpose of such texts and discusses the skills required of translators in this field, before delving a little deeper into the resources they need. Lastly, he provides some ideas as to how to find work in this exciting and fast-changing leisure industry.
