Art, literature and culture

We provide a range of translation and language services to ensure cultural exhibitions and events can be enjoyed by everyone, no matter the language they speak.

Using language to drive culture engagement

When it comes to the arts, literature and culture, the more people who can enjoy them the better. So, when establishments and event companies are looking to create engaging experiences that people who speak all different languages can enjoy – translation plays a vital role. 

Here at NRL we’re passionate about bringing history and culture to life through language support – ensuring everyone can enjoy a museum, exhibition or event and receive the same experience.


Translation support in more than 135 languages

Our extensive language solutions mean we’re able to translate documents and content into many different languages. Helping to provide a tailored visitor experience where people do not speak the native language. 

Translations provided by NRL are endorsed by the Institute of Translation and Interpreting (ITI) and are accompanied by a translation certification letter that demonstrates their accuracy and precision.

Creating multi-lingual exhibitions 

In the arts and culture world, effective communication is crucial for providing a seamless and enjoyable experience for visitors worldwide. Art galleries, museums, and cultural establishments must communicate effectively with their artists and partners in different regions worldwide – whilst ensuring visitors understand the art and culture on display. 

We offer high-quality translation services, with a team of expert linguists who have extensive experience in translating exhibition materials into multiple languages. Through our localisation service, we’ll ensure that history and facts are accurately conveyed in each language – taking into account any local nuances and idioms.


Using audio visual to talk the same language 

We’re also able to provide a range of audio visual translation services. Multimedia materials like videos and animations are excellent ways to deliver captivating content for fully immersive art, literature and museum exhibitions and events. Our audio visual services enable organisations to create multiple versions of their content. We offer the following options: 

  • Subtitling: Providing on-screen translations for viewers in their native language. 
  • Dubbing: Overlaying audio content with different languages. 
  • Voice-over: Narrating animations and conveying essential information. 

Languages solutions that cross continents

From European languages, to African, Asian and Oceanian – we’re able to assign translation work to a qualified and experienced linguist who will work carefully and precisely to ensure content is translated into the target language, so it can be enjoyed by its final reader.

Proofreading solutions to check the finer details 

For establishments that have already been provided with exhibition information, labels and marketing materials in other languages, we can provide a proofreading service to check over translated text for accuracy. 

This provides added peace of mind before materials go to print, that the translation is correct and avoids potentially embarrassing mishaps.
