The InterContinental Berchtesgaden Resort in Bavaria, one of Germany’s first mountain resorts, is equally committed to maintaining operational sustainability and supporting the local Berchtesgaden community.

For instance, as the moneyed-classes in China and Russia continue to grow, the market for outbound tourism from China and Russia grows as well.
The data was gathered from 7500 translation projects, which was started by tourism-related businesses such as airline companies, hotel chains, tourism agencies, and tourism websites worldwide.
An important portion of the translations were for tourism projects from famous destinations such as Western Europe as well as standard cruise vacation destinations.
Ofer Shoshan, Chief Executive Officer of One Hour Translation said, “Based on our extensive translation projects in various industries, we are able to see market trends that others might not.
As companies in any vertical look to grow their business and gain market share, we have a unique ability to guide that process through the work that we do over days, weeks, months and years.”
Key findings are:
A 20% boost in translations of tourism related projects into Chinese specifies a desire to draw Chinese tourists.
A 25% growth in translations of tourism related projects into Russian shows a comparable trend towards Russian tourists.
A 65% boost in translations performed by tourism related businesses in Brazil, geared towards fans who attended the recent World Cup Games, and potential visitors to the upcoming 2016 Rio Summer Olympic Games.
This increase points to potential business opportunities with travel-related companies in Brazil, such as hotels, airlines, car rentals and others.
