Expert CAD Translators

Our CAD translation services are carried out by genuine subject experts, who understand the terminology and conventions of your sector. This genuine, in-depth subject knowledge gives us the ability to translate your CAD files and full presentations with the precision demanded by engineers, architects, and designers around the world—ensuring your vision is communicated clearly wherever you present it. We are also language experts and mother-tongue speakers of your target tongue, enabling us to deliver CAD translations that are sensitive to the politics, history, and nuances of a specific territory. Of particular importance is our native understanding of the correct type of language to use in a given area (for example the use of Bahasa Indonesia as a formal language in Java, Lampung, and Bali, or the informal phrasing of Cuban Spanish). Using our CAD translation services ensures not only that your vision is understood, but that it is presented in a culturally appropriate way.

Fast Turnaround CAD Translation Services

We offer standard and urgent CAD translation services, with quick turnaround times and guaranteed accuracy. In extremely urgent situations we may be able to offer a same-day translation. Plus, thanks to our in-house DTP team, we are able to deliver a full design package for your CAD translation without the costly delays associated with the use of third-party services. You can send your artwork in any file format, or ask us to create original layouts for CAD presentations that need to be delivered in non-standard alphabets. You can ask to see proofs of your CAD translations at any time during the layout process. Additionally, we use the latest translation memory software to ensure the price of your CAD translation stays as low as possible. The software builds a memory bank of your most commonly used phrases and words, which it uses to avoid translation duplications on future projects. This is extremely useful when you have multiple engineering presentations to translate into the same target language.
