Technical translations

Precision and technical understanding are essential requirements for technical translations or specialised translations. That is why they are produced by specialist translators who possess technical expertise and excellent linguistic skills.

A specialised translation in the field of technology could be the translation of operating or usage instructions, user manuals, standards or documentation and reference works, for example. Common language combinations are German-English, German-Spanish or Russian. At Lingua-World, we also produce technical translations for all other languages throughout the world, always certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 9001 and DIN EN ISO 17100.

Technical translations: quality and security

If a sociologist asks for “Achtung”, they generally mean “respect” in the English translation. In a technical translation of the same word, however, terms such as “caution”, “danger” or “attention” are more likely to be used. The specialist translator therefore needs to be able to select the right word immediately based on the context.

In addition to accuracy and context, which vouch for the quality of technical translations, consistency is an important criterion for flawless technical translations. Ambiguous and imprecise formulations need to be avoided. Specific technical knowledge, on the other hand, is essential for technical translations.

Another problem with technical translations that can only be solved by specialist translators with sufficient knowledge is the fact that the source texts to be translated can contain errors or typos. For example if the author has mistyped “break” where they had intended to type “brake”. Or if the translator needs to decide whether they are dealing with information technology or computer engineering.

Our qualified technical translators are aware of this and other problems and deal with them carefully and professionally. Because safety, especially in the technical field, is also a matter of technical knowledge and linguistic precision, they have many years of training and sufficient experience as technical translators for our translation agency.

They are supported by access to our extensive and constantly updated database of technical terminology for specialised translators. Where necessary, we compare our existing terminology with any specific wording stipulated by you.

As a result, our technical translators not only produce flawless technical German-English translations or specialist technical translations in English-German, they also create excellent professional translations of technical documentation from or into Arabic, French, Russian, Spanish and other language combinations. For more than 180 languages and dialects, we at Lingua-World translation agency vouch for the native-speaker quality of our professional translators along with their appropriate technical expertise.
