It could be a user guide. An operating manual. A product specification. A medical journal. Our technical translation services are designed for projects where advanced sector-specific technical knowledge is required.

Because a translator might be the best linguist in the world. But if they don’t understand the terminology in the document they are translating, the result will never be as good as you need it to be.

That’s where our technical translators come in. They are linguists who are also industry experts. Qualified translators who can demonstrate specialist knowledge in your chosen field.
Because it also happens to be theirs.

What is meant by technical translation?

This is a specialised type of translation. You may need a technical translation service when your project is on a specialised, scientific, or technological subject or involves the practical application of technical concepts.

In short, if you needed a technical writer or a specialist in your field to create your project in the first place, you will probably need a technical translator to translate it.

The industries that need this kind of specialist service the most include the engineering, automotive, construction, chemical, and IT sectors.

But almost every sector has certain key technical documents that require knowledge of specialist terminology and concepts if they are to be translated effectively.

How we guarantee technical accuracy

Accuracy is paramount in technical fields. Linguistic slip-ups in an operating manual or a set of safety specifications can have devastating outcomes.

That’s why we never take risks with these critical documents. Our translator recruitment, vetting process, and quality management systems meet or exceed the requirements of the ISO 17100 international translation standard and the ISO 9001 international quality standard.

Quality and accuracy are guaranteed by the extensive proofreading and editing by native linguists which forms an intrinsic part of how we complete your translation.
