The article defines touristic texts and examines their characteristics with a view to their translation. It concludes that the main problems posed by this texttype are: their double orientation, the differences as regards the vocative function between the source and target texts; genre conventions in both languages/cultures; and the different socio-cultural background of both readerships. It finally provides some clues as to the ways these problems can be solved.
