We assign an expert in your field to your translations

We have over 3,000 qualified and experienced technical translators who have gone through our rigorous selection and testing processes. Periodically they undergo professional training and are nearly always degree holders in translation as well as being full members of professional translation bodies. Not only are our team members technically sound, they also have a deep understanding of their specialist fields of expertise, it is not uncommon for our team members to have previously worked in industry in a professional capacity.

Glossaries and translation memories

The formulaic and repetitive nature of technical writing makes the usage of Translation Memories (TM) and glossaries especially appropriate. More so than any other industry, technical translations benefits hugely from TM as it is able to store previously translated sentences and paragraphs. Not only does this mean all your projects consistently use the same terminology throughout, but it also means a reduction in your costs as we are able to provide discounts on previously translated text.
