    What tools can be used in the process of technical document translation services?

    Technical translations use support tools such as terminology glossaries and translation memories because these ensure terminological consistency, clear and understandable sentences, impeccable lexicon, and help minimize errors.

    Machine translation tools are often used, for example, Computer-Assisted Translation (CAT).

    The use of technology is essential for translating technical documents – but insufficient on its own. A high-quality professional translation requires linguistic and specialized knowledge of technical fields, as well as the ability to combine them according to specific needs. These are all factors we consider when selecting Espresso Translations staff.

    The cost of translated technical documents starts at $30 plus VAT for a certified translation. If you need a notarised translation this cost will increase to $90 plus VAT and a sworn translation is $50 plus VAT. 

    The cost of a technical translation depends on many factors.

    • Text length
    • Text type
    • Language pairs
    • Graphic layout requirements
    • Turnaround time (How urgent?)

    Who needs technical translation?

    Many different types of companies need translation of technical documents. For example, technical manual translation.

    Our clients operate in diverse sectors such as manufacturing, engineering, technology and software development, construction, research & development, and education.

    What is the importance of technical translation?

    Professional technical translation is vital for making sure that important information is translated properly. Technical fields are full of specialist terminologies, and getting a certified translation ensures that this specialist language is translated properly.

    This is vital, as a bad translation could lead to a wide range of problems – for example, if a customer uses your product wrong due to the user manual being badly translated, they could start a legal case against the company. Properly translated patent applications and research documents will also help ensure the success of your product.

    Technical translation help a broader audience easily understand technical information.

    Its continuous growth is also driving a greater demand for technology translation services for international products and services.

    – John R. (Technical Support Director)

    What are the types of technical translation?

    Technical translation covers a wide range of documents, all of which use specialist language from technical fields. Some of the most common technical translation types are:

    • Handbook and safety handbook translation
    • Training manual, video, or interactive training material translation
    • User manuals and use guides
    • Patent applications and supporting evidence
    • Development documentation
    • Research and planning documentation
    • Safety guides, including material safety sheets and hazardous materials guides
    • Contract translation
    • Meeting minutes and audio recordings

    Basically, any specialized technical field that needs clear communication across languages will need a technical translation service at some point.

    Our extensive experience makes Espresso Translations the ideal partner for any technical translation process.

    What are the characteristics of technical translation?

    As a specialist field, technical translation has many characteristics which are not found in more generalized translation work. The most obvious one is the use of specialist terminologies – including material names and properties. There is also a great need for technical translations to make sure that documents are laid out and presented in the correct way, to ensure that people can fully understand the information. Technical translations must be as accurate and specific as the products and services that the translations are for.

    Regardless of industry, accuracy and clarity are the two most important characteristics of technical translation.

    Accuracy in technical translations is critical, as all content must be translated correctly. And, clarity means communicating highly technical information and facts in a straightforward way.

    How is accuracy ensured in technical translations?

    Espresso Translations relies exclusively on specialized native speakers capable of using technical language to ensure the highest quality of work delivered to clients.

    We focus on four factors to guarantee accuracy:

    • Perfect knowledge of the target language.
    • Specialist knowledge of the terminology used in different technical sectors.
    • Expert use of premium translation support software.
    • Strict quality management and control of workflow.

    Several artificial intelligence programs support technical-scientific translations. However, a final check by a specialist Project Manager is essential before completing each technical translation project.

    What challenges are associated with technical translation?

    Some of the challenges associated with technical translation are listed below:

    • Accurately communicating highly technical information needs expert translating skills and industry knowledge.
    • Evolving industry terminology means translators must always be up to date with new technical jargon.
    • maintaining a clear, natural flow in the target language without compromising technical accuracy.

    At Espresso Translations, our network of native translators is experienced in dealing with such challenges. They always deliver accurate and reliable technical translations.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What is considered technical translation?

    Technical translation deals with translating technical texts, normally in industry and commerce. Today’s global markets have resulted in a greater demand for document translation and localization services, not only in English but also in other languages such as Chinese and Korean.

    How to become a technical translator?

    There is no one accreditation body for Technical Writers or Translators. If you want to become a technical translator, you’ll need mastery of at least one other language.

    You’ll also need to be an expert in a technical discipline and have essential translation skills.

    You must be able to use translation memory (TM) tools, CAT software, and terminology management systems. Gaining work experience in a specialized technical translation agency is also essential to develop a career as a technical translator.

    Membership of, or certification by, organizations such as the American Translators Association (ATA) can also help begin a career as a Technical Translator.

    What does a technical translator do?

    A technical translator translates technical documents (e.g., user manuals, engineering reports, etc.) into another language.

    What are the requirements? The work demands an in-depth understanding of the source and target languages. And, technical translators must also be experts in their chosen technical field to ensure the final documents are clear and precise.

    What is the difference between literal translation and technical translation?

    The difference between literal translation and technical translation is in the intended purpose.

    Literal translation, as the name suggests, translates the source text word-for-word. Technical translation solutions are different.

    They focus on accuracy and clarity and emphasize using the correct industry terminology in the target language. Typically, technical translations demand much more precision and zero errors!

    What is the difference between scientific and technical translation?

    Scientific translators usually translate theoretical knowledge and research findings, typically in the science fields. They normally focus on accuracy and precision and communicate complex concepts and scientific terminology. The target audience is, usually, those in academia.

    Technical translators normally translate highly technical information for practical purposes. Precision and clarity are usually the priorities. Sometimes, however, more user-friendly language is important. Product user manuals for overseas markets are a good example of this.
