Join in now: Comment on DIN draft standard for evaluating translations

Tags: |

As a permanent DIN member, oneword has been actively contributing towards shaping new norms and standards in the translation industry since 2019. ISO 5060, an important new standard for evaluating translations, is currently nearing completion. Experts and future users now have the opportunity to comment on the standard in its draft status. We warmly invite you to do this.

The best of both worlds: How machine translation (MTPE) and IEC/IEEE 82079-1 fit together

Tags: |

The IEC/IEEE 82079-1 documentation standard defines requirements for user manuals for reducing or verbalising risks when using products. This also applies to translated instructions, which is why translation processes play a crucial role, especially when using machine translation (MT). We explain how both worlds can be reconciled and give tips on what to look out for when using MT in the context of the documentation standard.

What technical translation does for the global standard of electrical engineering and electronics

Tags: |

High-quality translation of technical texts, documentation and communication in electrical engineering and electronics is crucial for the clear understanding and reliable operation of all applications in all languages involved, especially for German suppliers who act as pioneers and quality leaders among international competitors and operate in or expand to different countries’ markets. We explain what is important here.

How does technical translation support international quality leadership in mechanical engineering and plant construction?

Tags: |

The translation of technical texts, technical documentation and communication is as demanding as it is responsible. Especially in mechanical engineering and plant construction, where high-quality products are in demand worldwide and must therefore be understood and reliably operated in all languages. We explain the specific requirements in this key industry.

What is technical translation?

Tags: |

The translation of technical texts, technical documentation and communication is as extensive as it is detailed and comes with great responsibility. We explain the essential factors and explain what to look out for to achieve optimal results in every respect.

Advantages of localisation tools: when translations need specialised knowledge and precise tools

Tags: |

The localisation of software products is a complex process with individual specific characteristics and requirements. It requires highly specialised knowledge and corresponding processes. Localisation tools can provide substation support for this by facilitating workflows, reducing effort and increasing precision. We show the possibilities and tool variants.

Check, evaluate and ensure translation quality: the way to the perfect result

Tags: |

Offering perfect translation quality is elementary for us as a language service provider. But how can it be measured? There is no one straightforward answer to this, explains Nicole Sixdorf, our expert for translation management. For this reason, she explains here which individual factors and requirements determine the path to a perfect result in terms of quality and content, and what ensuring translation quality has to do with diligent checking, assessment and evaluation.

MTPE: Tailor-made or off the peg? How specifications ensure that machine translation fits

Tags: |

Our expert for translation management, Nicole Sixdorf, recently asked herself out loud what is the decisive factor when it comes to professional and appropriate corporate use of machine translation – and gave a lecture on this for the professional users of the tekom industry association. She has now summarised these findings in an insightful article. In it, Sixdorf explains that the right specifications are needed, what these are – and what this has to do with the comfort of a winter coat.

What is software localisation?

Tags: |

Software products must be able to be used effectively and easily by users and customers worldwide. In order for them to appear as if they have been written and developed specifically for the target market, they must be optimally adapted to cultural user behaviour in the respective country. Professional software localisation ensures precisely this.

What are localisation, internationalisation and globalisation?

Tags: |

Localisation, globalisation and internationalisation are similar terms and so are often used as synonyms. On closer inspection, however, they differ, and they complement each other. Companies that operate on an international scale or plan to do so should know the details and contexts of the terms so that their communication works in all languages and markets.

The right tone in all languages: multimedia localisation from oneword

Tags: |

Today, education and knowledge, information and entertainment are conveyed in many different media formats and languages. They are multimedia and multilingual, because it is important to reach a wide range of people in their language and to reach them in line with their skills and preferences. Professional multimedia localisation ensures this in the best possible way using all channels.

Machine translation for companies: accurate, fast and data-protected with oneTranslate

Tags: |

Thanks to freely accessible translation machines, it is now possible to translate a document, an e-mail or an informational text without great expense or effort, but unfortunately this is not without its risks. Therefore, with oneTranslate, we offer companies a tool that enables fast machine translation that is just as convenient but that is also compliant with data protection, is secure and complies with terminology.

Website localisation: translate websites and online shops efficiently and effectively

Tags: |

Today, business and the possibilities it presents are endless. Making the most of these, however, poses a few challenges for international companies. One of them is communicating effectively in the target markets so that potential customers understand and feel understood, especially when the initial point of contact is the website and online shop. A website translation that just focuses on the text is not sufficient for this.
