Tourism in the East Midlands – a little translation to welcome your customers

Recent research from East Midlands Tourism shows that the economic impact of the tourism sector in the region has risen from around £5.9 billion in 2008 to £6.05 billion in 2009. Some of this growth can be attributed to the trend within the UK for holidaying at home but, as we’ve seen recently, the UK government is keen to increase overseas tourism into the country.

As a Nottingham-based translation company, we’d like to see local businesses benefitting from any UK-wide strategy that will help boost the regional economy so we’re also interested in helping tourist attractions, leisure and sporting facilities, hotels, restaurants, transport providers – in fact, any business or organisation that benefits from the tourist trade – to communicate to their overseas visitors in their chosen language. Even simple translation of essential information can make a visitor feel more welcome, and more likely to recommend your business as part of a visit to the UK on their return home.

De Montfort University video for international students

Nottingham-based translation company, De Montfort University logoSanTranslate has been working with De Montfort University in Leicester providing interpreters for a video they have developed showcasing the experience that some of their international students have enjoyed whilst studying there.

We provided interpreters in Mandarin, Thai, Lithuanian and Polish to help in the production of the video – the first time that De Montfort has used this medium in its campaign to attract students from overseas.

UK universities are popular with international students and it’s great to see De Montfort tapping into SanTranslate’s experience of working with the higher education sector in such a creative way.  Take a look at their video here.  De Montfort provides a wide range of support for international students to help them settle into life in the UK as well as assistance in improving their spoken and written English.

SanTranslate can also help international students through our certificate translation service which students may find useful when applying for visas.
