The mechanical engineering sector is one of the largest branches of industry in Germany, generating 226 billion EUR of revenue in 2017. Germany has over 6,400 companies working in mechanical engineering (statista.com). Most of these businesses export their products and machinery, which means they regularly require translations for things like installation and instruction manuals or marketing materials. As a translation agency with extensive experience in mechanical engineering, tolingo is exactly the right partner to help companies internationalise and sell their products on a global level.
In specialist mechanical engineering translations, correct use of terminology is essential. The utmost accuracy is required especially when sensitive texts relating to human safety are involved, such as instruction or operating manuals for technical equipment. Not only do translators working in the fields of mechanical engineering, process engineering, vehicle engineering, industry and manufacturing therefore need a comprehensive technical understanding; they must also be familiar with the right specialist terminology.
Translating material on complex manufacturing processes or detailed machine components requires excellent language skills as well as an all-round understanding of technical details and processes in mechanical and plant engineering. Individual specialist terms for product lists or catalogues must often be translated with little or even no context at all. Choosing a specialist translator who has undergone training specifically in this subject area is therefore absolutely crucial to the quality of a mechanical engineering translation. We currently have 1,200 native speakers qualified to carry out technical translations, having obtained the necessary skills through previous professional training and years of experience in working with this industry’s specialist texts. Using the ‘four-eyes principle' (translation followed by proofreading), translated texts are also reviewed by a second native-speaking, certified specialist translator. This allows us to guarantee our clients a consistently high quality of translation.
