Types of Sports Translation

Intonation is a professional language service provider and we will source the right kind of translator to meet the needs of this diverse and culturally complex sector.


Sports & Competitions 

The formal regulation of sport has evolved rapidly during modern times. Ensuring the same rules are practiced worldwide has enabled sport to become a global phenomenon. When major sporting competitions and tournaments take place on an international scale, the need for accurate translations of rules and codes is paramount. Clearly translated rules remove ambiguity and provide adherence and enforcement. 



Translations of legally binding documents such as contracts must be accurate and precise. Certified, sworn and notarised translations provide official confirmation that a competent translator has been used and that the material is an accurate translation of the original. 


Ensuring public confidence in clean sport has put a spotlight on anti-doping rules and regulations. In cases where there are allegations of prohibited substances, accurate and expert translations are required.


Sport Event Management 

With thousands of people travelling many miles to watch their favourite sports, event management information needs to be in multiple languages. 



Accurate and fully certified original translations of key documents are important for players moving to join clubs and teams overseas. This process can include: contracts, medical information and personal documentation. 


Sports Marketing 

Marketing in a translation context is known as ‘transcreation’ – a term used by advertising and marketing professionals to describe highly creative translation matters. 

It needs to capture the right tone of voice and brand personality, resonating with target audiences across continents. 

Material can be online or hard copy format and includes advertising, leaflets, brochures, digital animations, social media, press releases, editorials and websites.

Our portfolio of clients includes major sporting events, national & international football clubs, sports journalists, lawyers, anti-doping bodies and sporting goods retailers.

With that in mind, we act in the strictest of confidence at all times.
