Expand into new markets using sporting events translation services

The popularity of sports and experiences has exploded as the world re-opened. For example, Deloitte estimates that women’s elite sports will generate revenues of $1.28 billion in 2024, over 300% higher than projections in 2020. The Southeast Asian market is one of the fastest growing regions for sporting events, with projected revenues of nearly $670m by 2028. Source: Statista

For specialist sporting event management companies looking to capitalise on market growth and increase market share, communicating in your attendees’ native language is vital. Accurate and culturally-sensitive human translation for events can make all the difference.

What translation services are key for planning sporting events?

  • Marketing translation: raise brand awareness and attract and engage bigger international audiences through nuanced and idiomatic translations of all promotional materials, including websites, digital and social advertising, brochures, banners, display materials and giveaways.
  • Event documentation translation: ensure a smooth event experience for sponsors, exhibitors, vendors and attendees, including  “get-in” logistics guides, registration packs and travel information.
  • PR and communication translation: translating email campaigns, as well as ‘pre-‘ and ‘post-‘ event releases, helps convey information clearly and improves engagement with the press and other attendees.
  • HR translation: translating assets such as employment contracts, health and safety policies, and relevant legal information helps ensure all event workers understand their roles and responsibilities clearly.

Why use translation services for your sporting events?

  • Communication: using experienced event translators helps to bridge language gaps, before, during and after the event. Accurately convey instructions or important information to all attendees, sponsors, exhibitors and vendors regardless of their native language.
  • Business expansion: event translation services enable event planners to reach a wider demographic and target new markets. Along with multilingual marketing it helps to appeal to individuals from diverse linguistic backgrounds.
  • Professional reputation: Demonstrate your commitment to inclusivity and ensure language barriers don’t dilute the quality of your attendees’ experience.
  • Compliance and accessibility: Certain regions may have regulations or legal requirements concerning the provision of event translation services, particularly to ensure the event is accessible to attendees with different language abilities.

I have worked with Janka a few times for this project, and she’s always been incredibly transparent, and taken time to ensure we are happy throughout the process of translation. Janka was checks in with me if a translator is unsure of certain things, which is much appreciated! It makes my job easier when coming to reviewing the final translations.
