Translations completed by qualified technical English linguists

We’re sometimes asked, “What makes a good technical translator?”  Afterall, translation is translation, isn’t it?  Basically substituting one word in one language for the equivalent in another?  A technical translator does of course do this at a very basic level – but also, so much more.  When we recruit our English technical translators, we look for:

  • Advanced language knowledge
  • A technical background, experience or academic qualifications related to the subject matter
  • The ability and thirst to research.  Technology constantly changes and together with these changes so does the terminology
  • Willingness to adopt a client’s in-house style and technical terminology
  • Ability to adopt a tonally correct flavour within the translated text while not jeopardising technical precision

What sort of material do our technical English linguists translate?

Here are just a few examples:

  • Handbooks
  • Instruction manuals
  • Patents
  • Safety data sheets
  • Health and safety information
  • Technical reports
  • Maintenance manuals
  • Tenders

 

If you don’t see your technical material listed here, don’t worry, just tell us what you need and we’ll let you know how we can help you.

Who are our technical English translators?

All translation work is conducted by highly qualified English translators. We ensure that each individual project is undertaken by the most suitable translator whose educational and professional background matches the project in hand.

Based on their performance, our translators are monitored against key performance criteria: accuracy, consistency, knowledge of subject terminology, formatting and completeness. They are re-evaluated regularly to ensure the high standards are maintained.

With the exception of linguists covering languages with rare status, as a minimum, our translators:

  • must have a relevant first degree, postgraduate qualification or corresponding qualification
  • are able to demonstrate a number of years full time work in an appropriate field.

We assign a project manager to every assignment to ensure the project runs smoothly and is delivered on time and within budget.

Just let us know how we can help you.

How is the cost for English technical translation calculated?

  • The cost depends on the volume
  • Translation is calculated per source word of original content
  • Proofreading/revision is calculated by the hour

While you’re here… some quite interesting facts about the English language.

English is a West Germanic language that was first spoken in early medieval England and is now a global lingua franca. Named after the Angles, one of the Germanic tribes that migrated to England, it ultimately derives its name from the Anglia (Angeln) peninsula in the Baltic Sea. It is closely related to the Frisian languages, but its vocabulary has been significantly influenced by other Germanic languages, particularly Norse (a North Germanic language), as well as by Latin and Romance languages, particularly French. English is the third most widespread native language in the world, after Standard Chinese and Spanish. It is the most widely learned second language and is either the official language or one of the official languages in almost 60 sovereign states. There are more people who have learned it as a second language than there are native speakers. English is the most commonly spoken language in the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Australia, Ireland and New Zealand, and it is widely spoken in some areas of the Caribbean, Africa and South Asia.
