Technical Translation Services
Technical writing must be 100% accurate and precise, especially when it is transferred into a foreign language.
We understand the specific requirements of technical translations.
Expert technical translation services
Our selection procedures for technical translators and our continuous monitoring process ensure that your translation project is carried out using the best resources. Rigorous translator testing and evaluation procedures combined with careful project monitoring enable us to deliver clear, effective technical translations.
Because of the repetitive nature of technical writing, translation memory is invaluable in ensuring consistency throughout your documents. A translation memory is a linguistic database that continually grows and “learns” from the translator. All previous translations are held in the translation memory and re-applied so that the same sentence never needs to be translated twice. As well as ensuring consistency across your documentation, translation memory can enable faster turnaround times and offer substantial cost savings as repeated text is charged at a reduced rate per word.
The project manager’s remit includes:
- Using translation memory to analyse supplied files and gain the optimum benefit from repetitions and matching text;
- Providing the translator with a current translation memory and any databases or glossaries relevant to the work;
- Processing files post-translation to ensure that the memory is kept fully up to date.

Technical translation FAQ’s
Here are some frequently asked questions regarding our technical translation services.
What is technical translation?
As the name implies, technical translation involves translating many different types of specialised documents such as user guides, operating manuals, etc. To translate technical texts, not only is a knowledge of the target language required but a high degree of understanding of the subject at hand. Professional translation services like Architekst should carry out the translation of technical documents. A technical document or manual that is poorly translated can lead to damage to vital equipment, customers not understanding how to use a project, or worse.
What makes a skilled technical translator?
A competent technical translator ideally will be a native speaker of the target language and solid knowledge of the source language. In addition to linguistic skills, such a specialist should have a deep understanding of the subject matter and relevant terminology. An experienced technical translator will produce accurate translations and meet any deadlines required. They will also keep these skills continuously updated and be aware of any new terminology or developments in their specialised field.
