Localizing for travel and hospitality

Being able to connect with international audiences is an important consideration for many types of businesses, but in the travel industry – where nearly all of your clients come from somewhere overseas – it’s a must. For instance, it might shock you to know that by 2020, it is estimated that there will be 500 million Chinese nationals with ‘middle-class’ income status. From this number it is estimated that there will be some 200 million outbound Chinese tourists looking for their next great holiday spot. It’s also interesting to know that most people (88%) prefer to book from companies presenting information in their native language. Is your business ready for the Asian travel boom?

Know your audience

A significant part of the localization process is understanding your customer-base in a particular area – how they talk about travel and what they expect from a getaway. Even in countries where the same language is spoken, terminology can vary significantly. For example, Americans go on ‘vacation’ while people from the UK go on ‘holiday’. This means that to provide clearest communication for each of these groups, you’ll need to provide two sets of localized content. Meanwhile, different cultures expect different things from their travel experiences. In one culture, the point of travel is to relax on a beach, soak up the sun and dine on exquisite foods. Other groups may be more interested in exploring new places, seeing important landmarks and immersing themselves in the local culture.
