Need a native speaker who specialises in sports translation?
Looking for a sports translator for your website and other content?
Professional sport is a mass phenomenon, ranging from the most popular disciplines (like football, basketball, tennis, cycling, motorcycling and motor racing) to others with smaller but no less loyal audiences (like handball, water polo, five-a-side football and badminton). Sport's international projection means sports translation is a means of bringing fans, athletes and federations from around the world closer to each other.
