    Technical translation of manuals and tecnical documents of all areas

    Instructions for domestic appliances, engineering projects, scientific reports, patents and more, technical translation plays a much greater role than we think in our daily lives. That is why you are probably looking for a translation company in London to help provide the boost your more technical documents need.

    Find your translator of documents

    Did you know that translating a technical manual for a tractor and translating a quality report for an urbanisation are two very different things? There are many professional sectors which have their own specific terminology as a result of the scientific language involved and this must be taken into account for the translation. This includes machinery instructions, architecture, the automotive trade, construction and renewable energies, to name just a few. Therefore, we believe the translation of technical texts and documents is essential.

    The sectors are all very different: the way they express themselves, the target audience, the different fields of action, and the professional jargon handled by each industrial sector. For this reason, translating documents, translating technical engineering texts and translating technical documents on architecture or in any other field require a professional document translator, a technical translator like those you will find in Okodia’s team of professional technical translators.

    If you put a lot of care into your technical documents, you should demand the same from the technical translations you need, for the translation of both documents and your corporate or technical websites. Translating technical documents is not a trivial matter, it is your international calling card and with Okodia, you have the guarantee that it will be done well. The translation of technical texts and documents requires special work that must be carried out by professional technical translators, by a document translator who has extensive experience as a general translator and, above all, who has specialised in translating documents from your industrial sector. We consider this essential when offering technical translation services.

    What is technical translation

    Although its name gives us a good clue about what it is used for, technical translation is one of the most heavily demanded translation services. So, if you have been looking for a technical translation agency for a while, you have come to the right place. 

    But what is technical translation? And why is it so important today? In general terms, it is the translation of any material that deals with technical topics and that uses specialist technical terminology. In other words, it is a translation that requires an expert in the field. A professional translator of technical documents will have a good grasp of the subject at hand and will have specialist knowledge of the vocabulary used in your field along, of course, with a thorough understanding of the source language of the document and the target language.

    Sectors

    • Architecture and construction
    • Renewable energy
    • Chemicals
    • Technical translations for telecommunications

    At Okodia Translation Services we have a wide range of technical translators specialised in many different subject areas. 

    And, as you well know, there are many different types of technical translation. At one extreme we have articles from scientific, medical, engineering and technical journals. Generally, this requires people with postgraduate training in the field in which they are going to translate, be it an engineer’s report or a scientific article, who are also trained in professional translation. At the other extreme we have tasks such as the translation of a product specification sheet for a computer, which may not require a high level of information technology knowledge, but does require a good working knowledge of the terminology used in that field.

    TECHNICAL TRANSLATION FOR TELECOMMUNICATIONS

    One of the sectors with the greatest need for constant updating and improvement to stay competitive is the telecommunications sector. As you well know, your company competes with much larger organisations with almost unlimited resources. What are two of your competitive advantages? The specialisation and personalisation of your products and services.

    Your products and services are of the quality normally demanded or even exceed this. You know it, your employees know it, but does your end customer know it? That customer who wants to learn more about your products but lives in China, India or Russia.

    In other words, if you know that:

    • Your products and services offer high quality and are the same as or better than those of other companies.

    TECHNICAL TRANSLATION FOR USER MANUALS

    This category also includes translations for bots, which are responsible for offering online help to people trying to use recently purchased products.

    The translation of user manuals requires the translator to have specialised knowledge and focus, but differs from other types of technical translation in a couple of important ways.

    Technical manuals must have an entirely objective tone without any hint of the author or trace of subjectivity. Technical texts are designed to convey information in a completely objective way to help the reader perform a predefined task. The dry, direct and generally simplified language found in user manuals is unique to this type of document.

    TECHNICAL TRANSLATION FOR SOFTWARES

    Until now, we have been talking about translations whose content is very technical. Another form of technical translation is the translation and localisation of software for user interfaces. Although a user interface may seem quite simple, the translator needs to have a good understanding of the computer program, as well as the terminology used.  Localising software, applications and e-learning programs requires a certain amount of technical knowledge.

    TECHNICAL TRANSLATION FOR CIVIL ENGINEERING

    In the last five years, we have seen how the civil engineering sector has reinvented itself. Companies who used to operate locally have taken the leap and are submitting international bids for tenders.

Companies that use professional technical translations carried out by a professional translation services provider like Okodia Translation Services.

    • Your company to once again occupy the leading positions in your sector.

    Technical translation rates

    You are probably wondering about the rates for these translations. At Okodia we have a specific section where you can request a quote based on the type of document and the language you need it to be translated into. 

    It is important to bear in mind that a technical translation is much more specific than any other type of translation and, therefore, may take a bit longer.

    However, at Okodia Translation Services we are here to answer all your questions and to help you achieve the best possible technical translations. Can we help? Contact us!

    The secret to a professional technical translation:

    If you type into your favourite search engine the keywords: translation of technical texts and documents, translation of documents, in any of their forms, or simply document translation, document translator, etc., you will see that there are thousands of translation agencies waiting to offer you their services. However, are all of them capable of carrying out a good technical translation based on each scientific language? Do all these professionals offering to translate documents speak your professional language?

    Architecture firms, construction companies, real estate companies, property developers, manufacturers of construction materials, renovation companies, and interior designers all need good translations of their texts. As experience has shown, your industrial sector, in addition to having its own terminology, also has some style rules, a very particular way of writing. That specific language, that way of talking about things, is further complicated by the importance of the content of the document itself and the range and number of companies involved in a single project.

    Do you know the advantages of having good technical translations, and why technicians and engineers prefer to use a direct, clear and transparent language?

    • In machinery instructions and manuals: it means you can save time and money with accurate translations. It prevents stoppages in the work rate and unnecessary repairs.
    • In work processes: it increases the ability of employees to understand the instructions and methods. It facilitates workflows. It improves the productivity of your employees.
    • In technical reports: it balances financial plans and avoids errors when allocating budget items.

    Do you want us to study your project and give you more solid reasons to use Okodia Translation Services?
