Skye website translated into Mandarin for Chinese visitor boom

10 January 2019 (The Scotsman)

A website about Skye has been translated into Mandarin in a bid to encourage people from China to visit the island.

The site features the animated Donald from Skye character, who gives recommendations of what to see and do in the area.

It has now been translated into Mandarin to help the growing number of Chinese people visiting Skye and to encourage further visitors to the island.

Donald from Skye said: “I love telling people from all over the world about the beautiful Isle of Skye, so to be able to tell people in China what Skye has to offer is brilliant.

“My aim is to make Scotland accessible to everyone, wherever they’re from, and now anyone who visits can see all the information on Skye in English or Mandarin.

“I hope this is the start of many translations of the website, allowing potential visitors to see the numerous sights and attractions they could see on Skye.

“Whether they need help booking accommodation, finding activities to do, details on where to park or where to eat, I’m the man to ask.

“I can’t wait to welcome new friends from China and all over the world to Scotland and to Skye.”
