My good friend and excellent colleague Eve Bodeux has just launched a new boutique translation company catering to the specific needs of the outdoor and adventure sports industries, the aptly named Adventure Translators. I’m going to be working with her as Chief Translator; Eve has run a very successful localization company, Bodeux International for many years and she’s a serious outdoor enthusiast (and also the only person I know who grew up in Alaska!), so the new company is a logical next step, and as far as we know it’s an unfilled niche in the translation industry.
We’re excited about this new venture because of the increasing popularity and cross-cultural appeal of outdoor and adventure sports, and because it’s a way to combine our passion for languages with our passion for the outdoors. As the company tagline says, “We Understand the Thrill!” Here is Eve’s launch announcement, which was released today:
