Implement the best practices today and connect in the language of the visitor!
There are a lot of challenges faced by museums and other cultural institutions. One of the challenges that they come across is how they can share the information about the artifacts with audiences who speak a range of languages. Okay, translation assisted by tour guides is an option but are they able to meet the visitors’ expectations?
In this blog, we are going to discuss how museums face the challenge of reaching audiences that speak a range of languages. What is the best possible solution to it? We are here to facilitate an open discussion on how museums can prioritize creating and sharing their collection to multilingual audiences.
We asked our museum clients on what was actually troubling them, and they confronted, it is the time, money, the difficulty in determining audience wants and desires by ensuring the quality and consistency of the language translations by tour guides. Making use of technology in the museum helped them and it can help you as well to save a lot of money by leveraging immense visitor engagement and satisfaction. A customized museum app can do it all. Want to know how? Let’s start.
Who are the Multilingual Audiences?
Multilingual audiences are both local and global. In the sense, cities where the local population has multicultural families, museum can see a growing number of multilingual visitors. For such a case, developing a multilingual museum app would be a feasible solution both for such audiences and museums.
How can a multilingual app help museums?
The solution is meant to enrich the experience in a way that transcends the barriers of language. With an app your museum visitor can select their desired language and can experience a personalized audio/video tour related to the artifact. They no more have to depend on the tour guides who would share the detailed on the artifacts.
The app will allow your visitors to choose the artifact which they wish to know more about it. Also, they can mark it as favorite and share it on Social Media (Facebook and Twitter) with art lovers and friends.
Looking forward to a customized multilingual museum app?
For museums, the multilingual audiences will continue to evolve. It’s always good to bring change for a good cause that can help you capture the attention of a constant flow of audiences. Technology has a lot to offer that can help yield great results in engaging museum visitors. So why not embrace a customized museum app that would help not only your visitors but also solve the issues faced by the museum staffs.
