Technical translation by specialised translators

Technical documents such as operating instructions need to be crystal-clear and comprehensible to the reader. As well as language skills, a good knowledge of the subject area and correct specialised terminology is required. This demands excellent qualifications on the part of the technical writer, the technical translator and the reviser, as well as high quality standards.

Translation of operating instructions to ISO 17100-certified quality

For the translation of instructions, manuals, data sheets and other technical documents, as an ISO-certified translation company we apply strict quality management and produce specialised technical translations in compliance with the translation quality standard ISO 17100.

Our quality management system meets all the requirements relating to the translation of technical documentation set out by the EN 82079-1 standard, which defines qualifications and translation processes for the translation of technical instructions:

  • Understanding of technical communication

  • Technical translator with in-depth understanding of specialist field

  • Fluent command of source and target languages, the target language being the translator’s mother tongue

  • Translation and revision by a second professional translator in line with DIN EN ISO 17100

  • Correct, consistent use of technical terminology

At oneword, we have 15 years’ experience in the translation of technical documentation, seamlessly monitored translation quality, and project and translation management tailored to your needs with qualified, dedicated contact persons and core translator teams. This provides the foundation with which we translate your technical documents to a certified quality standard and with absolute adherence to deadlines. As a certified technology partner of Schema ST4, Across and SDL Trados and an active member of tekom e.V., we are also very familiar with leading solutions and technologies for technical writing and translation management and we are in regular contact with continually new and future challenges in the translation industry and language services.

Translation processes are becoming increasingly complex due to the growing number of languages and rising time and cost pressures. But this is exactly where there is enormous potential for savings and simplification that often goes completely unrecognised. With the right translation management and the right tools, you can save time while reducing excess costs.
