Technical translation

What do we mean by technical translations? We mean any text dealing with machinery or equipment, manuals, instructions, user guides, certificates, declarations of conformity etc. Translation is all about research and having the right knowledge for the job, but this is where a lot of agencies come unstuck with technical subjects.

Although research is vital to our industry, at Active Languages we believe in allocating translators with an engineering or mechanical background or degree to technical translations as they have experience and an understanding of the industry that is priceless. Let’s take the word “rod”. There are so many different interpretations even in English that it can be a minefield if you haven’t chosen the right translator to get the correct term for the context or item.

Having the right translator with the right background is vital when it comes to technical translations as the wrong term or any misunderstanding could quite easily result in damage to machinery or, worse still, injury to personnel or users. At Active Languages, you can be safe in the knowledge that you won’t incur any costly mistakes or damage to your reputation due to mistranslation.

We work with our clients throughout the project from responding to queries from our translators to liaising whenever possible with your in-country reviewers (customers, distributors, agents, etc.) to make sure we meet with your exact requirements.

Put your technical translation in the right hands. Trust Active Languages to do the hard work.
