Engineering and translation share a common purpose: problem solving. Engineers can build the future, but to do so in a multilingual and constantly changing world, the industry needs impactful translations. We work with a team of highly qualified translators with engineering backgrounds, able to communicate big ideas, opportunities, and new technologies on a global scale. We have the linguistic skills, technical subject knowledge, and practical real world experience necessary to give our clients first-rate engineering translation services. Our client portfolio includes universities, regulatory bodies, institutions, and engineering leaders such as Balfour Beatty Rail Technologies, Aerospace Design & Certification, BAE Systems, Siemens AG and AECOM. We perform manufacturer website localisation and accurately translate vital documents and materials such as data sheets, operating and maintenance manuals, technical proposals, engineering specifications, product catalogues, technical patents, reports, training materials, and bid documentation in over 200 language combinations. State-of-the-art CAT tools enable us to translate technical documents that include complex formatting, drawings and diagrams in various file formats. While sophisticated memory translation software helps us keep client costs and turnaround times down without compromising on quality.
An internationally recognised standard, with certification ensuring organisations meet a high level of quality.
A specialist accreditation specific to translation companies. Something Absolute Translations is proud to have pioneered in the UK.
Selected by Goldman Sachs to be an exclusive member of its £500 million productivity & growth investment programme.
There to re-enforce our commitment to the highest standards of business ethics and translation quality.
Celebrating 15+ years, Absolute Translations has become synonymous with providing quality translations at transparent low prices.
We work across the four main fields of engineering – mechanical, civil, chemical, and electrical – but our main strength is the breadth of our subject-specific knowledge. Some of our translators have backgrounds in engineering sub-branches such as aeronautical and construction. Other members of the team specialise in defence, geotechnical, hydrology, production, or transport. Linguistic brilliance and technical subject expertise give us the edge and make our engineering translation services superior. We have the skill to translate for different audiences, and have worked on everything from training materials to procurement and purchasing process documents. We understand the key differences between RFI, RFQ, RFT, and RFP, and our translations will ensure you never miss a negotiating opportunity. The flexibility to work across all time zones, our next-day service, and fast delivery times allow us to help our clients be reactive to change, capitalise on opportunities as they arise, and meet deadlines.
“Absolute Translation did a very rapid and efficient translation for me of a complex engineering survey. It was good value and well done. I will definitely use them again“
Engineering is evolving. New disciplines and branches are emerging all the time as engineers investigate fresh ways to solve problems, push limits, and improve lives. Progression requires the sharing of knowledge and the teaching of skills. The next generation of engineers will not fully achieve their potential if the education materials and tools they’re supplied with don’t speak their language. Our professional engineering translators and mother-tongue speakers, are a vital cog in the machine: bridging the gap between knowledge and progress with a combination of technical linguistic ability, engineering knowledge, and cultural awareness. We understand that even when two people from different cultures are working in the same target language, difficulties in comprehension occur as a result of semantic variations in their native tongues. Our technical education materials are carefully crafted to make them accessible to students from countries as diverse as Russia, China, India, and North America. Our engineering translation services cover every document and educational tool imaginable, from e-learning course materials to research journal articles, academic papers, and entire textbooks.
