Technical translation concerns the translation of documents in fields such as civil engineering, technology or the automotive and agricultural industries. Some examples of documents which are most frequently translated in this area include machine operating instructions, information brochures, product cards, catalogues or technical specifications.
Depending on the text, our project manager will pick a translator with adequate experience and knowledge in the required field. Specialists in technical translation are often graduates of engineering studies with certified language skills. However, practical experience is essential. Translators in the field of technical translation must constantly improve their knowledge, keep up to date with developments in their area of specialization and constantly improve their skills. They must also have a thorough knowledge and understanding of the specialist terminology in the industry.
Upon requesting the service of technical translation please pay attention to the file format and ask our staff about the costs of editing the text you have submitted, as it is often the case that technical documents require such additional services. In addition to the translation and localization of technical documents, Summa Linguae also provides desktop publishing services.
