Expert technical translations

You can recognise a proper technical translation by its consistent use of terminology and expertise. The contents are understandable and logical. In order to make this happen, it is vital that the translator has both the technical and linguistic knowledge to truly understand the source text. This knowledge consists of many years of experience in a variety of different industries and areas of expertise, such as agriculture, horticulture, forestry, aviation and shipping, the chemical industry, transport and logistics. Many different technical organisations entrust their translations to us because they are specifically looking for a technical translation agency. Every translator has a fixed group of clients they work for. This allows them to garner more and more knowledge about your organisation with every translation. Our specific linguistic know-how, combined with our technical expertise, result in a steady stream of technical translations for our clients on a daily basis.

Native speakers and a translation team for every industry

Translation Agency Perfect works with native speakers. This means all translators translate texts into their mother tongue. This guarantees that the right tone of voice is used. As there are many different technical industries, we work with teams dedicated to said industries. As a result, we have ample experience for virtually any technical translation.

Translation memories for consistent technical translations and cost savings

By utilising translation memories, we can ensure that any technical terminology is applied consistently across the board. Additionally, it can also save costs if certain sentences or phrases occur frequently within a text. A translation memory is not a machine translation, but a tool that supports translators in translating sentences or segments that they already translated previously. The translator always remains in control. If certain words or segments occur especially frequently, we may be able to provide a discount based on repetition. Our project managers are happy to analyse whether this applies to your technical text. In addition, a technical translation by a technical translation agency is always checked by an experienced revisor in accordance with our ISO-9001 and ISO-17100 standards. You will always receive a translation that is both clear and has the right tone of voice for your audience.

We translate the following types of technical documents on a regular basis:

Manuals, product specifications, instruction materials, handbooks and work instructions, assembly and measuring instructions, software documentation, safety precautions, product brochures, technical reports, transport documents and scientific articles.

Rates for technical translations

We understand that you may be curious as to what you might pay for a technical translation. Because Translation Agency Perfect strives to be as transparent as possible, you’ll see what the cost (per word) is for technical translations in the table below.

Frequently asked questions for technical translations

We calculate the price by multiplying the word count by the rate per word. This then becomes the base translation price.

If you would like us to perform a full quality check on the translation, we will charge a small additional fee. If your translation doesn't have a Western European language in the language pair, the price may go up. Finally, we charge an additional fee if you have an urgent translation.

Our translators prefer working with Microsoft Word files. However, this doesn't mean you are restricted to just this file type. For example, if you have a PDF file, we can most likely convert it to a translatable format. Other file formats we can work with include: Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, XML and any plain text files. Do you have a different file type? Please contact one of our project managers.

Files must be provided digitally. We assess the provided documents on complexity and will perform a word count before we draw up a quote. We can make some exceptions depending on the situation. Legal documents and documents that require a sworn translation may be provided by registered post due to their confidential nature.

Translation Agency Perfect can translate different kinds of texts for you. You can contact us for the translation of manuals, general terms and conditions and brochures, among other things. We also translate blogs, web shops and websites.

You send your texts to Translation Agency Perfect and indicate your translation requirements, after which we will study your request and look for the best native translator. You will then receive an offer. After approval we will start translating immediately. Before we mail the translation to you, it is revised.

The ISO-9001 standard aims to continuously increase customer satisfaction, while the aim of the ISO-17100 standard is to guarantee the quality of the technical translations. The latter standard also ensures that the translated text is revised.

A translation memory is built up. This means that in similar follow-up tasks, the previously translated words are deducted. We also look at any repeated segments in the source text itself. This is attractive in terms of cost and quality. By reusing words and phrases that have already been translated, translations are translated consistently.

Translation memory

Our translation memory software can recognise repeated and previously translated texts. This increases the consistency of the translation and prevents extra costs. Previously translated texts are saved in the translation memory. Each client has their own translation memory.

Terminology list

If a specific translation or tone of voice is requested, this can be stored in the terminology list. These translations will then be suggested to the translator during the translation process. This improves the consistency of the translation and allows for special requests to be accommodated.

Quality control

In addition to a second check by a human translator, we apply an automatic quality control check. This includes stylistic improvements as well as a spell check and overall translation review. This aids the translator and revisor to better find mistakes in the texts as well as to improve the consistency of the translation.
