Tourism translation services:
reaching new audiences with words.

Whether you’re a restaurant in need of a menu translation, or a hotel in need of a website translation, here at LEaF translations, we have a dedicated and passionate team ready to help you reach new audiences.

Although our translation team is small, each member is hand-selected based on their knowledge, experience and background. This means that we have translators with extensive backgrounds in tourism who will be chosen to work on your project.

We all know how hard it can be when you visit a country, only to find that you are unable to read important information or leaflets designed for tourists and visitors. This is why we’ve made it our mission to make tourism accessible to everyone.

Based in the heart of York, we’ve worked with hotels, restaurants and attractions, translating a range of tourist material, including guides, marketing documents, menus and websites.

In 2019, just over 37 million people visited the UK from all over the world. Although many of those people spoke English as a second language, many of them did not. Businesses without bilingual websites or materials lose potential customers if they do not cater to them in their native tongue.

Whether you need translations of physical documents, such as guidebooks and marketing pamphlets, or a translation of your website, call us on 01904 373077, or email us at hello@leaftranslations.com to see how we can help.

Cater to every opportunity with fully translated </br>materials and websites

At LEaF, we’re passionate about language and we’re experts in translation, which means that we know just how important high-quality and effective translations are for the tourism industry. While in the UK, we’re treated to an abundance of translations when we go abroad, when our foreign friends visit us from other countries, they are not so lucky. In fact, failing to have a fully translated website can actually be harmful for your business. For instance, if a German visitor was to search for a hotel near them, using the German word “Unterkunft”, your hotel may not be as likely to appear within the search results without a translated website. Studies have also found that people pay more attention to websites and materials written in their native language when abroad. Only around half pay the same amount of attention if the information is written in another language. 


With years of experience within the translation industry, we know how tempting it is to use free apps and translation services, but the truth is that these solutions omit the nuance and sophistication of high-quality translations. 


As a small York-based translation business, we operate lean and flexible services to ensure the best and most competitive prices. As we are not VAT-registered, we can offer a 20% saving based on this fact alone. What’s more, as well as offering expert translators, we also offer SEO expertise for website translations, which means we can help boost your performances in local searches, helping you make the most of every opportunity.

Case study: Hotel Mirabell website translation

In 2019, we worked together with the Berlin-based advertising agency Männer & Müller to provide translations for two hotel websites in Munich – the Mirabell and the Metropol. While Männer & Müller focused on the website redesign, we focused on our area of expertise: English translations.


The result: two fantastic English-language websites showcasing the very best sides of the Hotel Mirabell and the Hotel Metropol in Munich, Germany.
