Professional translation of documents, websites, software strings, apps, films, and videos requires highly specialized translators who know your industry terminology. Ours have master’s or equivalent degrees in the art of translation – rendering and adapting concepts, not just words – at least ten years’ continual industry experience, and work into their native languages so they capture your nuances and expressions.Our process consists of three major steps: a draft or initial translation; editing (review of the translation by a second professional linguist); and proofreading for spelling, grammar, and punctuation. Additional steps such as formatting or layout/desktop publishing are also available. Translations undergo a final Quality Assurance review to ensure consistency and accuracy across all languages. Certified translations are at no additional charge.TECHNICAL TRANSLATION
The source files to be translated are produced by technical writers and mostly convey scientific or technological information.
Writing in the industrial sector is extremely precise and concise. Accurate descriptions of each concept, term and measurement are critical.
Professional linguists who specialize in technical translations have advanced degrees and expertise in your specific field of science or technology, understand this specialized terminology in the source and target languages, have at least ten years of experience in translation, and work in their native language.
Since the source text must be totally accurate, technical translations relay practical, objective, and functional data. They must be factual, with no insertion of unstated suggestions or opinions.
Technical translations must also follow the exact order and convey the exact processes and exact operations of the source text.
Unlike Marketing documents, for example, technical translations must be literal and logical, use simple and clear terms, and not allow for interpretation or nuances.
Our technical translators have qualifications such as these:
- 25 years’ experience in translating technical documentation.
- Native (target) language: Portuguese.
- Source languages: English, French, and German.
- Academic qualifications: Language and Interpreters’ Institute, Munich; Mechanical Engineering at the University of Lisbon.
