Technical Translations

PPE manual need translating? Doctor’s note written in a language you can’t understand?

Technical translations are probably the hardest type of translation a translator has to deal with. In these cases, the translator has to have the experience and/or skills and ability needed to research a field and understand the text in question. Due to this, these translations are generally considered to be more demanding than others. Many non-expert translators spend years specialising in a single field in order to be able to produce these high-quality translations and many also work as in-house translators for the same reason, as when you work as part of a business that specialises in a certain field, you also gain valuable knowledge and insight.

You wouldn’t expect a translator who has never translated safety reports on explosives to understand everything. You need someone who was either a specialist in the field or someone who has the training needed to find the answers they need. Generally speaking, a lot of technical texts aren’t that difficult to understand as they tend to go straight to the point and the language is standardised. This means that a resourceful translator can fill in the gaps in their knowledge, if they have any, and produce a translation using local jargon that the local specialists can understand, with a certain amount of ease.
