Cirencester, United Kingdom, May 14, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Since Liverpool was awarded the fiercely contested EU title of ‘Capital of Culture’ 2008 the city’s visitor, cultural and heritage attractions have been hard at work planning a plethora of events, concerts and exhibitions designed to attract visitors from across the UK and from all over the world. The team at Andiamo! Language Services has been working closely with many of the top attractions, including international museums, heritage sites and visitor centres to ensure that their information is available in a multilingual format for both printed materials and website content in time for the influx of foreign visitors.
Andiamo! Language Services, Director of Projects, Miranda Sambidge says “It’s an exciting time for us, seeing this award go to Liverpool and working with so many of the attractions on their foreign language material. Since Andiamo! was established 20 years ago we have become niche providers of translation for the tourism industry and have built up a global network of specialist translators. It is a highly specialist sector to work within. Our translators need to have more than just excellent language skills they also have to have a keen interest in the heritage and culture of the UK and to have spent a lot of time here.”
Miranda adds “Over the years we have established an excellent team of professionals who understand the UK’s quirky traditions and significant places – for instance that the Cavern isn’t a cave and that a Yellow Submarine isn’t just a submersible – well not in Liverpool anyway! Fortunately for our clients, our translators understand how to convey this information in a way that is understandable as well as attractive for our foreign visitors.”
The 2008 line up of events looks spectacular and includes Tall Ship racing in July, a magical show in September and the MTV awards in November. For a full list of events take a look at visitliverpool.com.
