What is a technical translation?

A technical translation is a type of specialized translation that involves texts that relate to technological subject areas or texts that deal with practical application of scientific and technological information.

We consider a text to require a technical translation when the language and terminology used in the the document requires specific technical knowledge.

Examples of technical translation materials are:

  • Technical Documentation
  • Operations/User Manuals
  • Instruction Manuals
  • Assembly Instructions
  • Troubleshooting Guides
  • Installation Manuals
  • Software Strings
  • Scientific Papers
  • Software manuals
  • Patents
  • Product Brochures and Catalogues
  • Specifications of item or of components/materials
  • Data Sheets of item or of components/materials
  • Test Methods
  • System requirements
  • System design
  • System architecture
