Engineering Translation Services for Export

When preparing products for export it’s important to use specialist translators for all the documents associated with them. The engineering sector uses very specific and highly technical terminology and language and any misinterpretation of the translated content could put people’s safety at risk. This is why you need to use professional engineering translators who are not only native speakers of the target language, but who also have experience of all the technical terminology you use.

Translation for product export

When exporting products to different countries, your technical documents and engineer user manuals will need to be translated into their native language. The accuracy of these documents is paramount because technicians and engineers use them to maintain your products effectively and safely. Any potential misinterpretation here could put people’s welfare and lives at risk.

Other content that will need translating includes your website, your brochures and/or catalogues. The language used within these is potentially more creative as it’s used to attract new customers, but they still have important technical elements within them.

Industry leading translation software

To ensure accuracy and consistency across all your translated text, our specialist translators use translation memory software. Translation memories (TMs) are used to help our specialists work more efficiently. Segments of text that are repeated throughout your documents are stored and then used again to ensure that they’re always translated in exactly the same way. This helps us produce high quality, consistent translations within a quicker time frame.

Saving you money and ensuring quality

Technical documents often include an element of repetition so by using the translation memory software which saves time as well as ensuring consistency, we can also pass this benefit on to you in the form of a discount.

When you ask us for a quote, we’ll analyse your documents to determine the amount of repeated text within them. If there are repetitions or matches from previously translated text we’ve carried out for you, you’ll receive a discount clearly indicated on your quotation.
