    Are you involved in athletics, football, mountain biking or another sport? Are you one of those people who prefer extreme sports like rafting or perhaps mountaineering? Sports translation is undoubtedly what you need.

    Virtually all of us have a favourite physical activity and we do it whenever we get the chance. Okodia’s professional translators specialising in translating sports are no exception. We love sport and enjoy translating sporting content for all kinds of activities, both those considered the most popular (football, basketball, handball and motor racing) and those that have a more narrow appeal (chess, billiards and curling).

    In addition to being healthy, a love of sport is contagious and has generated hundreds of thousands of international athletes and spectators, as well as various industries and parallel economic activities:

    Manufacturers and distributors of sports equipment,

    Clubs and federations,

    Communication, advertising, merchandising and packaging agencies.

    Press articles, notes and releases,

    Specialised training courses,

    Specialised web environments,

    Technical journals,

    Instructions for sports equipment…

    Logically, all this economic activity generates a barrage of very different contents with one very important thing in common: the need to be translated by an agency specialised in sports translation and by its professional translators who have excellent linguistic skills and who absolutely love the world of sport. That allows them to convey their passion in the technical sports texts they translate. It is clear that if you love what you do, the result will be better than good, it will be excellent.


    Main characteristics of specialised sports translations

    Every sport has its own jargon, a vocabulary that the audience demands and that the translator specialising in sports must speak, understand and, most importantly, know how to translate with passion, rigour and efficiency from one language into another.

    Furthermore, the economic activity generated by sport is as competitive as the sport itself. The number of international consumers and spectators of sports-related products is high, and all these companies and professionals need their customers if they are to remain in the market, offering these customers added value and speaking their language. In short, the job is to translate content into the language and culture of the market to provide a better service.
