Traveling is one of today’s favorite activities. We are all tourists at some point in our lives. And when we travel, we expect our experience to be perfect, full of authenticity and local flavors. To achieve that, most of us use technology to prepare our journey, by reading reviews on hospitality or checking what we want to visit in a particular place.
Technology empowers travelers and tourists. It brings them closer to the places they visit. Companies and organizations are aware of that. In Spain alone, 83.7 million tourists arrived last year, generating 92.28 billion euros in revenue. According to MarketWatch, global tourism should grow at a rate of around 3.9% every year and reach around 10,417.15 billion euros by 2025. To be part of that growth, it is crucial to provide visitors with attractive content on websites, apps or social media. Offering a creative, easy and innovative platform where visitors can find local information on a specific place can add real value and help companies and organizations to set themselves apart.
To ensure that our online or in-situ content reaches visitors, translation is key. Tourism is one of the industries that needs translation the most. However, translation is not enough. Cultural nuances are just as important. A poor translation can have a direct negative impact on the visitor’s experience and that is something no one can afford.

Assembling a team of 20 people for a three-week project and regrouping three years later.
In 2012, a software company with extensive international reach requested a 20-person team for three weeks to translate a large-scale software release into multiple languages, with just a week’s notice. After the three weeks, they requested the team be downsized to a security patch and bug fix service package of 15 hours a month. Three years later, the company requested the team be reassembled for the release of a new version of the software. The client wanted the same team, posing the challenge of bringing these people back on board. At iDISC we managed to do exactly that.
Synchronizing the machine translation of an online catalog in three languages in less than 24 hours
A world-renowned US-based online vendor of electronics needed to have their website simultaneously updated in three languages: English, Spanish, and French. We developed software to detect any changes made in the English version. Using this software, an automated alert was established for the Spanish and French translators and, in under 24 hours, all necessary content was translated and synchronized across all three languages.
