Cultural translations


Translating a book, an exhibition catalogue or a film script calls for a solid understanding of the subject matter, a full command of the target language, stylistic flair and a talent for creative writing. Backed by the professionalism and expertise of our team of translators and revisers, the Soget Est name has been linked to a whole host of prestigious, internationally renowned cultural events.


We provide translations for the highest art forms all around us

Literary translations

The purpose of our literary text translations is to take Italian fiction to a foreign audience and, more generally speaking, bridge the linguistic gap for all manner of publications: our past projects include successful writers and such leading names in publishing as Zanichelli Editore and Mondadori. Literary translators are familiar with all these aspects.

Translations for art events and exhibitions

The museum and painting/sculpture exhibition projects we have been involved in include translation, copy editing and page layout services for artist biographies, catalogues and a range of ancillary documents produced for informational, publicity or promotional purposes These services have led to a longstanding, lucrative collaboration with leading cultural institutions, including the Triennale museum in Milan and the Trento and Rovereto Mart museum of modern and contemporary art.

Music translations

We handle various music-related translation projects, including music artist and musician biographies, texts on the history of music, reviews and pieces of music, as well as audiovisual localization. Out of the lengthy list of past projects, one that really stands out is a job we did for the “Andrea Bocelli Foundation”, providing translations on the career, songs and awards of the most popular Italian tenor in the world.

Translations for cinema and theatre

Soget Est has translated film scripts of film productions into European languages and Chinese for major distribution networks. You will find our name in the closing credits of such films as those directed by Andrea Segre.
Our audiovisual localization services include subtitling and dubbing films and videos.

Translations for the design industry

We have translated material for major architecture, urban planning and industrial design projects marked by the creativity for which Italy is famous.
The numerous events hosted by Milan’s Fabbrica del Vapore complex or Triennale Design Museum are just some examples of our A-to-Z services, ranging from the translation of individual captions, colophons and visual content, through to complex catalogues in the form of deluxe publications or multilingual multimedia.
