Just 84 days, that’s 12 weeks to the mathematically savvy amongst you, separate us from the opening ceremony and commencement of the London 2012 Olympics.

With 204 nations expected to participate in 302 events over the course of 19 days, the eyes of the world will be on Britain, as our little island hosts the most famous international sporting event on the planet for the third time.

• London hosted the Olympic Games in 1908 and 1948
• It will become the first city to officially host the modern Olympic Games three times

Here at Lingua Translations, we’re understandably as excited about it as most, and Friday July 27 cannot come soon enough. For we acknowledge the sheer importance of so many languages and cultures converging on the UK, and the bid to bring about a lasting legacy of language learning.

A total of 8.8 million tickets were made available for the Olympics and a further two million tickets have been released for the 11-day Paralympic Games (27 July – 9 September), meaning London’s population is set to soar as the whole world seemingly descends on one place.

There are of course six other locations hosting events – Cardiff, Coventry, Glasgow, Manchester, Newcastle, and Weymouth & Portland. Based in Swansea, South Wales, we’re fortunate enough to be situated just 40 miles along the M4 motorway from one of those host venues – the magnificent Millennium Stadium.

There is subsequently an unbelievable opportunity for businesses and organisations nationwide to outreach to an enormous number of potential future clients.

Additionally, we can offer national award winning sports translations. We will provide expert Olympic Games translations, professional interpreting services, and sports translation services as and when needed.

We work with sporting clubs and associations, helping to improve communications. For example, we offer football contract translations, football club website translations, and were recently asked to send our journalists and offer FIFA World Cup translations for multilingual press coverage.

For all sporting organisations who need to widen their market, and at any level, Lingua Translations Sport can advertise multilingually overseas. We can help you to produce professional multilingual brochures, media packs and international press resources.

With 26 sports, 10,500 athletes and millions of spectators, it’s going to be a busy summer. You’d be a fool to miss out.
