What is technical translation?

It could be a user guide. An operating manual. A product specification. Or a medical journal. Some translations require advanced sector-specific technical knowledge if you want the best results.

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

That’s where our technical translators come in. The technical translations we produce will often include industry-specific or even client-specific terminology and vocabulary.

To ensure you always get a translation of the highest professional standard, we work with linguists who are also industry experts. These are qualified translators who can demonstrate specialist knowledge in your chosen field. Because it also happens to be theirs.

Working with your terminology

If you have existing translations or glossaries of terms, we will integrate these into our workflow for your projects. This guarantees that the translations you receive from us say exactly what you need them to. It also ensures they remain consistent with your other translated materials.

If you don’t have glossaries or termbases, we can help you create them. Our expert translators stay on top of new developments within their specialist fields. So you can be sure that the technical translations we provide will always be fully informed and up-to-date.

The precision that technical translation needs

When it comes to the technical translations we produce for clients around the world, we understand the importance of getting it right. A linguistic mistake in a machine operating manual or a set of safety specifications can have catastrophic consequences. That’s why we don’t leave anything to chance.

Our translator recruitment, vetting process, and quality management systems meet or exceed the requirements of both the ISO 17100 international translation standard and the ISO 9001 international quality standard. Quality and accuracy are at the heart of everything we do.

Meeting your format and quality demands

Whatever format your document is in, we will be able to send you back a publication-ready translation in the same format. Working with our multilingual DTP specialists, we can handle almost any format, including InDesign, Illustrator, PDF, Publisher, and CSV.

All of the translations our dedicated linguists produce are monitored on a project by project basis. We also continuously provide our linguists with relevant feedback. This all helps to ensure that we leave the smallest possible margin for error with any materials you entrust to us.
