Translations for boardsports

The boardsports industry encompasses some of the world’s most popular sports, and the market is booming.

Surfing, snowboarding, skateboarding, kitesurfing – whatever the discipline, boardsports lovers want equipment, accessories and apparel that will stand the test of time and see them through their adventures, no matter how hard they ride.

To win your customers’ trust and break into new international markets, you need to prove you’ve got the goods. How? With translations crafted by specialists who truly know what they’re talking about: people who ride just as often as they walk. Because if there’s one thing we can all agree on, it’s that life’s better on a board.

If you want to partner with a sports translation agency that shares your love of boardsports, give us a shout. We’re ready to take your brand global.



At The Action Sports Translator, we get what drives your customers to pick up a board because it drives us, too. When you’re not riding, you’re thinking about riding. When you’re not even thinking about it… well, you’re probably asleep (and dreaming about it).

We’re trained translation professionals with years of boarding on water, air and land under our belts. This winning combination allows us to put the same amount of thought and passion into our translations as you do your products. Our goal? Give your international customers the same thrill and unique brand experience you provide local customers.

Whatever the discipline, our translation specialists understand the boardsport gear your customers need to push themselves to their limits and have a damn good time doing it.


When we say we truly understand your customers, it’s not an overstatement. Our translators are surfers, snowboarders, wakeboarders, mountain boarders, kitesurfers – you get the gist. If there’s a board involved, our translators are down to ride it.

► We live for the thrill of gearing up or strapping in to ride some clean waves, fresh pow or steep hills. There’s nothing quite like it – and we know your customers share the same passion. We love our boardsports – and the hard work and pain it took to master them.

► That means we use your products day in, day out. So we know how to describe technical gear and inspire your customers to buy it. Imagine working with a translation agency who knows the difference between bindings, why waxing a board is essential – especially on a powder day – and how to use skins on steep terrain…

► Our sports translation services cover a wide range of adventures and activities, from skateboarding to winter sports, water sports and more. For example, got a new apparel line about to land? We cover translations for sportswear and footwear, too.

Whether you need subtitles for a new campaign, translations for board-inspired apparel or multilingual copy for technical gear, we’ve got you covered. We’ll create content that cruises ahead of the competition and helps your sales drop in to international markets like a pro.



► The world’s best boardsport brands choose to work with us. Why? Simple. We get them – and we make it easy for them to scale their international ecommerce by harnessing the latest localization tech available.

► Ready to strike out into new markets with ease? Whether you’re gearing up to launch a new collection or want to improve your existing translations, we’re here to help. Get in touch to learn more.


We support our clients with a wide range of services, including marketing translation, copywriting, transcreation (a combination of copywriting and creative translation), proofreading, SEO translation, subtitling, and more.


English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch, Swedish, Norwegian, Finnish, Danish, Polish, Japanese, Korean, Russian, Chinese, Vietnamese, Turkish are our most requested languages, but that's far from all. Need other languages or specific local variants? We've got you covered.


The type of content we translate is as varied as your collections are: Ads, websites, landing pages, press releases, product descriptions, brochures, video content, marketing campaigns, newsletters, email content and more.


Snowboarding, splitboarding, wakeboarding, surfing, windfoiling, cable boarding, mountain boarding, kitesurfing, snowkiting, sandboarding – whatever board your customers ride, we’ll help you translate all the gear they need to get out there.
