Museums & Cultural Institutions

Whether listening to an audio tour, watching a subtitled video, or using a tablet to explore an interactive exhibit, visitors prefer to engage with content in their own language.

museum-quality translations

With more than 30 years of experience supporting cultural institutions, Eriksen has cultivated a trusted network of translators, editors, and typesetters who provide the special level of proficiency required by the cultural sector.

By making resources accessible in a range of languages, we can help you foster dialogue and encourage in-depth exploration with local audiences as well as visitors from around the globe.

The 9/11 Memorial appreciates how much attention Eriksen has given to our projects. Often with aggressive timelines, you always find a way to make it happen.
