Translations for outdoor gear and equipment

The leisure sports industry is extremely competitive. Buyers can shop for outdoor gear and equipment from anywhere in the world with just one click. When customers are spoiled for choice, how do you stay top of mind?

If you want to appeal to international outdoor industry customers, translating your outdoor gear and equipment copy is a no-brainer. But how do you make sure your copy stays true to your brand voice in all languages?

There’s an easy fix: join the world’s major outdoor brands and work with us. When it comes to the outdoor industry, we’re real insiders. We’re outdoor enthusiasts, adventure sports athletes, and professional translators. Leverage our laser-focused linguistic, marketing and industry expertise to truly appeal to your international customers.


When we’re not working on translations for outdoor gear and equipment, you’ll find us enjoying a night (or ten) under the stars. We know what it’s like to trek deep into the forest or reach the top of a steep mountain trail – and how vital it is to suit up for the adventure.

Our team has the industry (and real-life) experience to write product descriptions that are technically accurate – and that sell. We know the crucial difference between waterproof and water repellent. And we know how to convey it to your customers so they won’t end up wet and cold when they next head into the great outdoors.

Our translators specialize in different action sports and know exactly how to describe your products – because we’re out there using them in the first place. That’s what gives you a real edge in a crowded market.
