Ensure that your food and drink menus are professionally translated by Linguation.com and be ready for the new ordering apps
Customers order and pay using ordering app
Post-lockdown we are now venturing back to bars, pubs and restaurants. But nights out are likely to be a little different in the new normal. Pubs, bars and restaurants are looking for ways to reduce contact between staff and customers and between customers and customers. For a start, table service is now customary, which in many English-speaking countries is different from the usual pub culture.
However, table service does add a nice continental feel to a night out and does importantly stops unnecessary social contact from queuing at the bar. But it is important to note that many bars and restaurants are going even further. Instead of waiting staff taking your order, bringing your bill and taking payment, many eating and drinking establishments have introduced apps so customers order and pay via their mobile phones.
Online translation agency, Linguation.com, can provide professional translation of any menus and other information needed to facilitate the use of these apps in your establishment.
Ordering apps and multilingual menus
There are many ordering apps on the market. Ordering apps are not entirely new and some places have had these already in place but they were previously usually not the only way a customer could place a food or drink order. Now, the COVID-19 situation has seen an increase in these apps being used exclusively, that is, without any alternative way to order.
Basically, these apps allow customers to read your menu, order and pay from the comfort of their table, limiting contact with staff. Many apps also allow customers to book tables and give their details for tracking and tracing purposes, cutting down further the need for social contact.
Many pubs, bars and restaurants are offering loyalty points and other deals, such as a free starter or pudding for using their app. All this needs to be communicated to customers. And importantly, without the personal service, customers will need to know what there is to eat and drink. Menus need to be clear and accessible to all customers.
