Museums & Cultural Institutions

Whether listening to an audio tour, watching a subtitled video, or using a tablet to explore an interactive exhibit, visitors prefer to engage with content in their own language.

Museums and cultural institutions everywhere recognize the diversity of their audiences. Translation enables these organizations to make authentic, culturally sensitive content accessible to diverse local communities as well as international visitors.
