What is a technical translation?
Technical translation covers the translation of a wide range of texts of a technical nature. This may be system descriptions, user manuals, product descriptions, safety instructions and much more. Technical texts can therefore be divided into a wide variety of different technical disciplines, each with their own conceptual universe, that varies from language to language. This could include, for instance, everything from IT and electronics to architecture.
Technical translations at Diction
The translation of technical texts requires a technically skilled translator who is familiar with technical terms and is skilled at navigating among the different technical areas in both the target and the source language.
At Diction, we specialise in translating technical texts of various kinds, and it is important for us that you receive an accurate quality translation of your technical text. Therefore, we always select translators and proofreaders on the basis of their technical skills and experience within the particular technical setting associated with your text. You are also welcome to enclose reference material for your translation in the form of, for example, previous translations, photographs of products or other documents that can give our translator an idea of the preferred terminology. We always treat submitted material with the strictest confidentiality, so you can safely send us your technical texts and receive a non-binding quote.
