From A to Z:
What goes into one of our translation projects

Hand-picked translators with expertise in your professional area

Linguistic skills and sector-specific knowledge need to go hand in hand if a translation is to meet the highest standards.

That is why we work with a global network of freelance translators who are all wise in the ways of language – and bring a variety of areas of expertise to the table as well.

We have high standards for the education, experience and industry familiarity of our translators. We keep a close eye on quality. And we treat our translators as colleagues on equal footing with our in-house experts.

Documentation squared away with MadCap Flare

Single sourcing is an absolute gift for technical documentation! In fact, we are still amazed at just HOW brilliant the concept is.

It is for this reason that we have worked hard to become experts in handling the translation of files from the MadCap Flare application. Now that really is fantastic!

A word from your language expert

“Technical translation isn’t nearly as dull as you might think. On the contrary, all kinds of fascinating elements come into play. You have the chance to track the entire life cycle of a product, from the initial design sketches to delivery documentation, within a wide variety of sectors and using special software, document structures and formats.

The terminology also has to be right on the money in texts like these, which often encompass multiple areas – over and above the strictly technical section – in the same text: legal disclaimers and software, for example. This means an extra tip of the hat to the all-round professionalism of the translators, because not only do they master the linguistic aspect, but they also have a firm grasp of all kinds of machinery and technical topics.

A successful outcome in a project like this often demands a close working relationship with the customers, which is an aspect of the work that I really enjoy.”
