Technical documents

Technical translations that do what they are supposed to

It’s a common experience: you consult the instruction manual for a gadget you’ve just bought, but you hardly understood a word – although it’s written in your native language! Translating technical content so that it can be easily understood is a job that requires talent and expertise: highly complex content has to be communicated in an understandable and reliable way. After all, your customers all over the globe are delighted to receive documents, instructions or manuals in their own language. And if the text is also easy to understand and feels “right”, even to native speakers, then there will be no problems with misinterpretations.

A professional translation of technical texts also has to fulfil very high requirements. But for you, the solution can be very simple. As a quadruple-certified translation agency we specialise in technical translations and process the most complex projects on a daily basis. Our aim? To ensure that your technical translations do exactly what they are supposed to. And that the process stays as simple as possible for you – no matter how much needs to be translated. Give us a call, and we’ll show you what we mean.

Professional technical translations – we ensure that you find the right words

Do your specialist technical texts contain complex and very specific terms? The translation, therefore, has to be doubly correct, so to speak – both in terms of content and consistency. Your wording – whether it is for technical or marketing reasons – needs to be consistent, because only then can your readers understand the texts across several documents. And only then can the translation of technical documentation such as operating instructions or safety datasheets comply with the legal requirements that many technical texts are subject to, e.g. in the mechanical engineering industry. Precision and consistency are decisive for the quality of technical translations. Here, better understanding means more security!

Our certified specialist technical translators know this. Communicating technical contexts in an understandable way to people all over the world is something that they do on a daily basis. With the help of a translation memory consistency is guaranteed.

Our specialist technical translators translate the content precisely and with an eye for the decisive details. Many technical documents can benefit from machine translation where consistency is literally pre-programmed. This is often a good supplement to the work of a specialist translator – and even quicker!

That’s why we recommend our Smart package for technical translations. With this translation solution, we use artificial intelligence only when the text is suitable.
