Specialist Defence Translators 

Designations, acronyms and appropriate code names are at the heart of many Army translations. From TUAS (Tactical Unmanned Aircraft Systems) to IED (Improvised Explosive Devices), it’s vital that your documentation retains the correct meaning for complex designators. Statistical information regarding combat readiness, the effective range and purpose of ordnance and the systems specifications of wearable tactical computers calls for highly technical, precise delivery in the language of every partner in a defence contract.
