July 2017, Boston MA – Language Connections, a Boston translation agency and interpretation service provider, often partners with Higher Education institutions. We regularly work with several academic departments at Harvard University.
In one recent project, we provided translation and localization of the the Harvard Fogg, Busch-Reisinger, and Arthur M. Sackler Art Museums online guides from English into Spanish and Chinese.
The Harvard Art Museums
The Harvard Art museums play a major role in the development of art history, conservation, and the evolution of the art museum as an institution. Each museum focuses on several art forms and periods, providing a collective effort to allow for appreciation and interpretation of various established as well as evolving art forms.
Translation and Localization Services
Our role for this project was to provide a complete Spanish translation and Chinese translation of the three art museum guides to allow non-native English speakers to enjoy what the art museums have to offer.
The challenge for our translators was to ensure that each version was not only accurately translated, but also adapted for its respective target audience. This required Spanish and Chinese localization efforts to adapt descriptive text to the Spanish and Chinese languages. Differences in written scripts were taken into account such that the translated content corresponded exactly with the original English language version.
Similar services are often required by institutions looking to appeal to international markets. Product descriptions, guides, tour materials, websites, marketing materials, and audio recordings often need to be translated and localized.
