Translations for skateboarding

Skateboarding is one of the world’s most popular sports with over 85 million riders across the globe. To cruise ahead of the competition, you need translations that show off your skate gear to its full potential.

These days, customers expect only the best. Decks that can take a beating over and over again. Wheels that glide or give the perfect amount of slide. Clothes and shoes that you can rock at the skatepark or wherever else your adventures take you.

At The Action Sports Translator, we craft high-quality translations for skateboarding brands, maintaining your edge so you can snag the top spot in the market. How? With compelling content that will resonate with your target customers and keep them coming back for more.


When your translations are locked in, it’s the difference between landing that new trick or totally bailing. You’re unlike any other skateboard brand on the market, so why should your translations be standard issue? At The Action Sports Translator, we know that skateboarding isn’t just a sport – it’s a lifestyle. And once it pulls you in, there’s no letting go. Life’s better on a board.

Skateboarders don’t want a one-and-done shopping experience. They want a trusty brand they can turn to time and time again. To be part of a collective – one where they can express themselves without judgment. Where they can ride harder, faster and for longer.

Getting your skateboarding translation technically right is the bare minimum for loyal skateboarding enthusiasts who buy from your brand and proudly show off their gear to the world.

Need to subtitle video content for a new campaign? Looking for SEO translations for your online store? New collection only a few months away from dropping? You name it, we’re on hand to help.


There’s no better feeling than standing at the edge of a ramp, waiting for that perfect moment to drop in and start your ride. The adrenaline’s soaring. Your heart’s pumping. Your mind is running through the tricks you’re about to do on repeat. You know exactly how to perform them – now you just need to land them. As lifelong skateboarders, we know that a good run is the perfect blend of planning and execution. And that’s exactly how we approach your translations, too.

Our translation specialists love nothing more than getting in a quick cruise after work. They live life on two trucks and four wheels – whether commuting to work or heading out for a sesh afterwards to clear their heads.

► Your team lives and breathes skateboarding, so hire localization experts who can get on their level. The technical know-how that we bring to your skateboarding translations will help them catch some major air.

► Our translators know which size wheels are right for cruising and which deck’s best for pulling off tricks. And the tees, pants and footwear that are musts when you want – no, need – to skate at your best.

► We know your market as well as we know the rails at our local skatepark. Your product copy is translated by people who use the products – and your consumers will be able to tell.
