Spanish Food Wine Translation
In this post I am going to discuss my Spanish Food Wine Translation.
My interest in Spanish culinary delights is lifelong.
However, my interest in translating in this sector started in 1990.
Two parts of my working life came together.
I was living in Cartagena in the region of Murcia.
That is the South East Mediterranean coast.
Agriculture is very important in the region of Murcia.
As is tourism especially along the Costa Cálida.
As such I was in an area with strong agriculture and tourism.
Spanish food producers language services.
I used to teach English to agricultural companies in the region.
These companies exported the land produce to to Britain.
They provided to major British supermarkets.
Because of this they needed industry specific language skills.
To deliver such classes I needed to learn about their specific sector.
This meant that I had to learn food names and find ways to describe their characteristics in English.
Spanish Wine Translation
Murcia produces its own wines.
These were very popular and respected in Spain.
However, the wine producers wanted to export wines of Murcia.
My job was to create exciting information in the English language.
To a certain extent I had to translate a Spanish wine text.
Yet at the same time I had to develop the ideas to make the wine appealing outside of Spain.
Naturally, the only real way to decide what you think of a wine is to taste it.
But my Spanish Wine Translation service helped to introduce the wine.
Spanish Food Translation for tourism
Back in 1990 I was working a great deal with the tourism sector.
I have to be honest.
At first, I was amused or perhaps shocked at the English used in restaurant menus etc.
It was as if the hospitality sector did not think that proper descriptions in English were important.
Perhaps in a way they were sometimes right.
At that time not all visitors to Spain were equally interested in Spanish cuisine.
Spanish people would say that tourists seemed to prefer their own food while in Spain.
So, I did not find it easy to encourage professional Spanish Food and Wine Translation.
However, the idea did gradually grow.
Consequently, using my developing knowledge of Spanish food and wine producers I could provide useful accurate translations.
