Expert technical translation services
Our selection procedures for technical translators and 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 an invaluable technology 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.

Typical Industries and Documents that Require Technical Translation
The demand for technical translations has increased dramatically in the past years as industries grow and expand globally. It is essential for these industries and individuals who work with them to find translators who specialise in specific fields, so they get accurate and professional-quality translations. Here are some industry examples and technical documentation that are often required to be translated.

We have a deep understanding of the manufacturing industry, and we’re always happy to help manufacturers with their business needs so they can reach new markets around the world.
Technical Translation Services for Construction
Construction is a heavily regulated industry, and obtaining approvals typically necessitates a large amount of paperwork and the translation of technical documentation into the local language of the country where the company operates. Working with international vendors necessitates ensuring that all materials and equipment meet industry standards as well as local regulations. If documents are poorly translated during the translation process, this can lead to an entire project being delayed or even cancelled. We offer high-quality, affordable translations of documents such as building plans and specifications from English to multiple languages.
Technical Translation of Safety Manuals
Accurate translation of safety manuals are an essential part of any company’s business and can make a significant contribution to the health, safety, and wellbeing of employees and consumers. Safety manuals contain instructions on how to use a product safely from start to finish, so it’s important to translate correctly into the target language to keep employees or consumers safe. The need to translate these manuals in order to ensure that all parties are on the same page has increased exponentially as international trade continues to grow. For this reason, it’s important for companies that produce safety manuals to hire a professional translator who can accurately and efficiently translate these documents from one language into another.
Technical Translation of Operating Manuals
It’s important for every employee working with machinery to have an operating manual translated into their native language. This will ensure that anyone wherever in the world they are based can read and follow instructions on how to operate equipment needed for their job. Operating manuals are written in a precise manner, and it can be challenging to translate them without the right experience. This is where our team comes in. With years of technical translation experience, we know how to convey instructions and information with clarity. We can translate all types of operating manuals, including those for complex machinery, medical devices, or industrial equipment.
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, you need a knowledge of the target language and a high degree of understanding of the subject at hand.

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.

Ideally, a competent technical translator will be a native speaker of the target language and have solid knowledge of the source language.
