The Technical Translation Process

Blue South’s translation network can translate any type of document. We handle every aspect of foreign language content delivery to ensure accuracy is maintained and delivered. 

Before any work is carried out, we will conduct a full evaluation to create a budget and a timeline that we will adhere to. We will then select a translator for you based on our translators’ professional qualifications in your subject matter. We have translators with qualifications in the electrical, mechanical, medical and communications industries, to name just a few. Your translator will also have a second degree in linguistics and will be based in the country of your target language. 

Our translators often work on translations for things such as electronic devices, GPS equipment, machinery, domestic and commercial appliances, or any other technical device you can think of.

Accurate Translations Ensured

Blue South’s use of glossaries and termbases means our translators always produce consistent and highly accurate translations. You will also retain the same translator for any future projects for the same product. This ensures consistency across the project.

But surely anyone that speaks the language can translate my documents?

In today’s global business environment, technical translation has become a necessity. Many companies have expanded their manufacturing, R&D, and sales offices to other countries because of the cost or product demand. This creates a requirement for technical documents to be translated.

Technical translation is specialized.  Just as the person that wrote your document knew the ins and outs of your industry, you need a translator that knows the same things. Without this knowledge, your translator will be unable to convey the technicalities in your document accurately.

Translated documents are used in virtually every industry to instruct, advise, educate, sell, and communicate your requirements and information to potential clients or customers all over the world. Some of the documents our translators often work on, are:
  • installation manuals
  • user guides
  • safety manuals
  • data and specification sheets and much more
