Museum Translation Services

Museum translation is an art, requiring expert language skills and specialized knowledge. At BeTranslated we offer a wide variety of translation services for art galleries and museums.

Creative translations for a major multilingual sector


There are many activities in the museum and heritage sector that may require professional translation services, including: guided tours, presentation of permanent and temporary collections, organisation of debates and conferences, creation of promotional materials, and digital marketing campaigns.

More often than not, these elements will require multilingual communication to respond to the needs of the ever-increasing amount of international visitors. At BeTranslated we have a superb team of creative translators specialising in heritage and the arts. With clear and constant communication, state-of-the-art translation technology, and a passion for languages, we tailor our linguistic solutions to our clients needs, from small local galleries to major national museums.

Art, history, science and culture


The museum sector serves the purpose of showcasing national and international artistic heritage and history. This often requires in-depth knowledge in a variety of fields, such as science, technology and world cultures. Due to this demand of expertise, museum and art gallery translation must be dealt by professional linguists with sufficient knowledge in the subject area or discipline.

Our team of certified translators are chosen not only for their linguistic capabilities but also their specialist knowledge, academic backgrounds and hobbies. Who better to translate your palaeontology exhibition display than a former anthropologist-turned-translator with a passion for dinosaurs? 

Museum website localization


Your website serves as an initial presentation of your museum or gallery’s activity and collections. However, a monolingual website will not attract half as many visitors as a professionally localised website in Spanish, French, German, Italian and/or Chinese. If you are looking to attract more visitors from around the world, trust in BeTranslated to translate your web content. Many of our linguists are experts in web translation and IT, offering you seamless, professional results.

We are happy to undertake the full translation of your website, working directly with HTML, PHP, ASP files or exported databases in the .CSV or .XLS format. Upon completion of the project you will receive a fully translated version, ready to publish, in as many languages as you require.

We offer the following services:


 Collection information

Museum labels

Exhibition texts

Informative displays

Museum maps

Audio Guides

Art and history literature

Press releases

Conference programs

Archive documentation

Our international translation agency has an excellent track record in museum text and document translation, working with many major British, French and international museums.
