Expert translators

The act of translating specialist texts poses certain challenges for the translator. In contrast to literary translation, which permits a greater degree of artistic freedom, specialist translation demands not only excellent linguistic skills but also utmost precision regarding word choice and knowledge of the subject area and its terminology. Depending on the subject, content type and target language, a specialist translator needs to be able to compensate for cultural differences while always keeping their know-how up to date. 

tolingo works with a pool of more than 6,000 experienced, certified translators who work on specialist texts every day. That means that we’re always able to find the perfect specialist for the subject area, content type and desired language combination – and the quality of our translations is always outstanding.

Have specialist texts translated by qualified translators

Specialist expertise, a knack for linguistic style and high quality standards guarantee that your translation project will be executed properly. Not only do our specialist translators have academic training, they also have many years of professional experience in their specific field (such as medical technology, patent law or marketing, for example). In order to ensure the quality of your specialist translation, they only work in their area of specialisation and only translate into their native language.

After translation, every text can be proofread by a second specialist translator according to the 'four-eye principle' and evaluated in terms of grammatical, stylistic and overall quality. All changes that the proofreader makes are made available to the original translator and stored in the translation memory to ensure continual improvement.

Find out more by visiting the corresponding sector pages or by getting in touch with our team of experts.

  • What’s the difference between translation and specialist translation?

    A translation is considered a specialist translation when specialised expertise is required to produce a translation of a text. This requires, for instance, knowledge of specialised terms used in the respective sector of industry. Of course, a medical professional understands the term “initial value”, however, the term “baseline” is far more conventional in clinical studies. When you speak the language of your target audience, they perceive your text in an entirely different way. This shows that you know what you are talking about and that you are a competent and trustworthy collaborator.

    Thanks to the comprehensive knowledge of our qualified specialist translators, we also guarantee that ambiguous terms – so-called homonyms, such as Kiefer (pine tree) / Kiefer (jaw) or Bauer (farmer) / Bauer (bird-cage) – are always correctly translated according to the relevant context. As specialists in their respective areas of expertise, our specialist translators spend little time searching for applicable terminology, which means that they are able to translate your texts into the target language of your choice with the greatest efficiency. You can find out more about our translators’ qualifications here.
