When translating your technical documents, make sure your customers understand how to use your product. The pervasiveness of science and technology today is such that technical translation has become an essential element that businesses need to address. Technical documents translation (user guides, operating instructions, handling descriptions, patents, reports, instruction sheets, etc.) is crucial nowadays for companies, especially those trying to win international market shares. The difficulty is twofold for the translator: they have to accurately translate technical terms, but also adapt them to the local culture.

Technical translation services
Accuracy is the cornerstone of our work, as in technical translation the smallest error could have serious consequences. The world of technology relies on clear and concise technical documents. Even so, how many times have we read technical instructions for a domestic appliance and didn’t understand what was written? Or even worse, found spelling mistakes showing how badly the translation work was botched? The translation of technical instructions cannot be improvised!
Finally, it is important to note that technical translation requires a dual competence: technical and linguistic. For this reason, and because these skills need to be constantly updated by translators, this type of translation service is usually more costly than when it comes to working on a less complex text.
