Manufacturing & Engineering Translation by Accredited Linguists

Manufacturing and engineering translations tend to be the most complex. A misrepresentation of any terminology can be a costly mistake.

Mistakes can lead to unsafe working conditions, cancelled projects, legal liabilities and added expenses. Technical translations require native speakers who have experience translating similar documents.  

Our accredited linguists are experienced in various technical documents, working on product manual translation projects and user manual translation services. We can also help with:  
  • Operating manuals
  • Maintenance manuals
  • Engineering specifications
  • Technical standards
  • Engineering codes
  • Quality assurance manuals
  • Document control procedures
  • IHS standards
  • Warning labels
  • Process control documents
  • CAD drawings
  • Code of conducts
  • PLM reports
  • Engineering proposals
  • Engineering training courses

What are the 4 Most Common Types of Professional Translation Services?

Although there are many types of services depending on your industry, what are some of the most common for the engineering industry? 
The most common forms of engineering translation include technical translation, general translation, certified translation and legal translation.  


General translation could be any of the non-technical written elements — like warning signs — these types of services do not require expert knowledge or specialised jargon for the particular field or industry.  

Certified translation services can be as vast in terms of what documents it covers, but it offers an extra level. Based on the client’s requirement, a certified translation comes with a document issued by the translation company that certifies a level of excellence and accuracy. It is like a stamp of approval that certifies that the translation was done with professional engineering translators. 

A legal translation is another form of service that includes documents such as contracts, expert options, court judgement or other legal procedures. This requires advanced knowledge of the two languages, but also legal experience and an understanding of their legal systems. 

Lastly, technical translations are the most common term you will see. This covers anything that requires subject-matter experts that have high linguistic skills as well as experience translating engineering documents. Technical knowledge can refer to multiple things, but it mostly refers to engineering and IT material translations within the engineering industry.  

What are the Pitfalls of Not Translating My Documents?

For a manufacturing company primarily operating in Europe, the CE mark is essential. This confirms the conformance to European Health Safety and Environmental Standard (HSE) standards for the sale of products within the EEE. 

There are many requirements required for gaining CE marking. This includes developing the user manuals and translating them into different languages. Generally speaking, all countries have rules relating to technical goods imported from other countries. User manuals are usually required and must be translated for each targeted market language. 

This is not the only pitfall to missing out on user manual translations. But considering that necessary document translations include operating manuals and safety guides, a poorly translated document can lead to serious and catastrophic accidents due to unclear instructions. This leads to customers dissatisfaction and confusion for workers as they are struggling with a piece of machinery or software with nonsensical translations.  

One word can have different areas, especially in the areas of engineering and manufacturing. That is why our translators specialise in engineering translation services and understand specific terms within the field.
