"Adventure and Sustainable Tourism in Plain English"
I have an absolute passion for travel, especially to the German-speaking courtries where I frequently travel to, in order to keep my language skills at their peak.
I also have extensive experience working in the hotel sector, both in Scotland and in a luxury hotel on Lake Constance.
Finally I am well aware of the force for good that tourism can be if done correctly, and conversely, how damaging it can be if it is done wrongly. This applies especially in the aftermath of the COVID pandemic.
I translate from German to English and specialise in adventure and sustainable tourism. If you have any texts in this area, and you want to reach the wider Englishs-speaking market, look no further. Whether that’s a:
city tour guide,
pamphlet for your tourist attraction
flier for your sports facility,
personnel member's bio,
or calendar of events,
I can take this headache off your hands.
If you have a text that has already been translated, but you want a second opinion, or just want a quick final check before it goes to the publishers, I can help here as well.
Finally I offer a content copywriting service. If you need content written for your website, blog or newsletter, I can write that for you, and return to you, ready for your developer to upload it to your site. Let’s talk and see how we can best work together to achieve your goals.
Alastair handled all of my work professionally and when we met to discuss the work in hand he was punctual and concise. Alastair handled my work with the delicacy required and was very professional in his approach. He was meticulous and took care into how his work was presented . I would recommend Alastair to anyone considering translation work.
