Architecture Translation Services

Our architectural technical translation teams work with mother-tongue familiarity in more than 200 language combinations. From Europe to the Far East, we build teams that live and work in your target territory, have native understanding of the culture you’re working in and know the local building regulations inside out. Working with local building regulations, electricians, plumbers and structural engineers, we produce drawings, specifications and mechanical/electrical layouts that conform to local requirements. That’s why some of the most recognisable names in construction and building services trust Absolute Translations with their tenders, building plans and technical specifications. Some of those names include Balfour Beatty plc, Laing O’Rourke, AECOM, ARUP and Barhale Construction.

Professional Architectural Translators

Our translators are qualified, native speakers of their working language, experienced construction professionals working in the relevant field. We work with architects, regulations officers, civil and structural engineers and building services managers to create technically perfect translations. We don’t just use industry-specific terminology: we understand it. Our expert architectural translation teams are made up of professionals with the qualifications to draw up your plans in the target language, and the familiarity with local planning and regulations you need to get them passed, together with a hands-on familiarity with the bureaucracy of local planning and regulations.
