NEW YORK, June 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

One Hour Translation, the world's fastest professional translation agency and the largest online, announced today that they will be providing free, on-demand Twitter translation services in real time during the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil starting June 16th. Soccer fans from across the globe are encouraged to tweet @OHT during the games to have their message translated in real time for free.

The company is offering the free service following a successful deployment of its Twitter translation sports hub during the Sochi Winter Olympics held in February.

For tourists attending the Games, One Hour Translation's Twitter Hub can provide valuable services such as translating directions to events or news stories about teams or the matches, or simply as a way to communicate in the local language, Brazilian Portuguese. Those enjoying the matches from the comfort of their home can use the translation hub to encourage their favorite teams or as a fun way to enjoy the matches with their family.

"With so much global attention on the FIFA World Cup, this is a great opportunity to allow fans from different counties to connect and show pride for their respective teams. We will also allow travelers to interact with the local market and fellow travelers, as they will be able to translate messages in real-time," says Ofer Shoshan, CEO, One Hour Translation.

The company also reports an increase of 52% in demand for tourism-related translations into Brazilian Portuguese over the last 6 months.

One Hour Translation's World Cup Twitter campaign will kick off on June 16th with a tweet from Mr. Shoshan. In order to utilize the service, global Twitter users can simply tweet @OHT along with their message including what language they would like their message translated to. Within moments @OHT will translate the message and respond back to the user.
