HELPFUL LINKS

WHAT ARE TECHNICAL TRANSLATIONS?

Technical translations are a specialised form of translation; they're used to translate texts relating to applied science and technology, such as technical documentation like owner's manuals, user guides, etc.

HOW ARE TECHNICAL TRANSLATION SERVICES DIFFERENT?

Technical translation services are different as they require industry specific knowledge. For this type of translation, translators must have expert knowledge of the subject matter in question and the technical expertise to translate the highly specialised terms of the original text.

ARE TECHNICAL TRANSLATIONS DIFFERENT TO A SCIENTIFIC ONES?

Technical translation services focus on business and practical matters, and scientific translation services are for other documents that are more theoretical and science based.

WHY ARE TECHNICAL TRANSLATION SERVICES IMPORTANT?

The accuracy of a technical translation can have a huge impact on the success of your business. For example, in the automotive sector, incorrectly translated documents could result in the manufacturing team producing products incorrectly or dangerously.

WHAT DOES A TECHNICAL TRANSLATOR DO?

A technical translator offers translation services of either written or oral communications. Their work is specific and industry-based. As well as knowing their niche subjects, they must also be aware of the specialised terminology.

HOW TO ENSURE AN ACCURATE TECHNICAL TRANSLATION?

The best way to guarantee the quality and accuracy of your technical translation is by using a professional translation agency that only employs skilled, native speaking linguists with experience of your subject matter, services and projects.

HOW ARE YOUR TECHNICAL TRANSLATION SERVICES BETTER THAN THE REST?

We will only ever use native speakers with 5+ years of translation experience and the technical background specific to your industry. Additionally, our customers benefit from one point of contact who will respond quickly to their needs throughout the whole technical translation project. Plus, by using the latest CAT tools and technology, we are able to efficiently and consistently translate all types of documents, including those with complex formatting, diagrams and drawings. All of this, whilst also ensuring our customers benefit from a quality service that offers faster turnaround time and cost savings!

DO YOUR TECHNICAL TRANSLATION SERVICES USE COMPUTER SOFTWARE?

Yes we do! By using computer software and the latest technology, such as translation memory and terminology management, alongside our human translators we are able to provide industry-leading and accurate technical translations that also ensure the costs to our clients are kept to a minimum and tight timescales are achievable.

WHAT IS TRANSLATION MEMORY SOFTWARE?

Translation memory (TM) is a technology that establishes a database of different kinds of information that can be automatically retrieved, translated and reused when translating the same or similar content again. This not only ensures consistency, but is especially convenient when you have projects that require the translation of similar content on a regular basis.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF USING TRANSLATION MEMORY SOFTWARE?

Translation memory software helps to reduce the costs associated with repetitive and similar translation of content and enables technical translators to work more efficiently and at speed when they have projects with tight timescales.

HOW DO TECHNICAL TRANSLATION SERVICES DIFFER FROM ONE INDUSTRY TO ANOTHER?

The technical translation service required by one sector can vary greatly from what is required in another. In some industries, such as in the automotive sector, translation of technical documentation is required by law. In others it is simply needed because the company operates in foreign markets where they have to provide information in the native languages.

WHEN ARE TECHNICAL TRANSLATIONS NECESSARY?

Technical documents require specialist translation services as they include technical terminology and language unique to the customers' sector. Translating technical documents is needed in many sectors, including automotive, healthcare, construction, engineering and manufacturing, and is vitally important for companies that operate in multiple languages.

WHAT TO CONSIDER WHEN CHOOSING AN AGENCY FOR TECHNICAL TRANSLATIONS?

When choosing a technical translation service provider to work with, consider the company's reputation and quality of work, as well as how available they are to respond to you especially when speed is of the essence.

WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM TECHNICAL TRANSLATION SERVICES?

Our team of specialist linguists provide professional technical translation services for everyone. Our client base ranges from individuals looking for a one-off translation service, to some of the world's leading companies looking to connect with their target audience. No project is too small or too complex which is why we are able to accommodate even the most niche technical projects.

WHAT TYPES OF TECHNICAL DOCUMENTS CAN YOU TRANSLATE?

We specialise in precise translations for a variety of technical documents including data sheets, engineering specifications, safety manuals, technical guides, auto and aviation manuals, training programmes, tender documents, white papers, installation and service manuals, hardware and software interfaces, user guides, patents, websites and product brochures to name just a few.

HOW DO POOR TECHNICAL TRANSLATIONS EFFECT MY BUSINESS?

Poor quality translation could not only undermine your reputation but it could potentially physically endanger the end users of the translated technical document. Often, a mistake in the translation of a document can cost a company much more than the fee of a professional technical translation service.

WILL MY TRANSLATOR HAVE SPECIFIC INDUSTRY EXPERTISE?

Unlike other translation companies, we match your translation request to translators who are expert in your sector and understand your target audience. Additionally, our technical translators work to industry-specific documentation formats such as technical manuals, training documents and any other documents.
