Translations for the culture & entertainment industry

To translate everything from cookbooks, film synopses to museum materials requires accustomed to terminology, specialist knowledge and the ability to take out the turns while maintaining tonality. The high quality of translation can be critical to the success of the project.


At Comactiva we have a large network of translators. Our translators have expert knowledge in various topics within the cultural & entertainment industry and live and operate in the country where the current market is located.


This enables us to deliver high-quality translations where the content is adapted to the target group while maintaining the integrity of the work.

Professional translations for the cultural & entertainment industry


Comactiva has many years of experience in translation projects for culture & entertainment. Our network has knowledgeable translators with deep knowledge of both language and market. All our translators live in the country where the relevant language is spoken and they only translate into their native language. 

In order for texts to be consistent and to reduce your translation costs in the longer term, we use tools such as translation memories and term databases where your customer-specific information is stored for you for upcoming assignments.

The challenges of translating for the culture & entertainment industry


Book projects are often extensive and require tight dialogue between publishers, authors and translators. The translator must be able to relate freely to the source text while maintaining the tonality of the text.


Niche projects require expert knowledge and solid research. Cookbooks need localisation, dimensions adapted and sometimes ingredients may need to be replaced with local variants. Common to translation of books and film synopses is that they are both often very time-critical projects.

Museum materials require accustomed to the terminology, in-depth research and creative ability in order for the visitor to feel the march of history or to enter a new world.
