Technical translation

In translation, there are many different specializations, and each field has its own communication needs and objectives. Any good translation will adapt the original message to the target audience’s language and culture. Unlike literary translation though, which allows a great degree of flexibility, technical translation requires absolute precision. Fortunately, Idem’s adept technical translators are your guarantee of exactitude and quality.

Right on the mark

The use of precise, industry-specific terminology is what defines technical translation. Instruction manuals, safety data sheets, operating instructions and specialized websites are just some examples of technical content.

Diligence is important in our line of work, but it is absolutely crucial in technical translation. Writers use a specific vocabulary, so the translator’s challenge is to achieve the same level of precision. Essentially, those who read the translation should be able to understand the exact same thing as readers of the original document.

No room for error

A badly translated technical document can have major consequences. To demonstrate just how essential accuracy is in this kind of work, just imagine if an instruction manual said to place your hand one way when using a tool, but the translation said to put it the other way: that one “little” mistake could lead to a serious injury.
