Technical translation is a specialized form of translation which involves transforming technical texts and documents from one language into another. This includes documents such as user manuals, API documentation, operating instructions, product data sheets, etc.

Global businesses must ensure these documents are accurately translated to allow end users to properly, effectively, and safely use their products. Having well-translated documentation elevates customer experiences, ensures compliance with local regulations, and expands your audience reach and sales.
Technical documents are laden with scientific, engineering or technical details which are often industry-specific, and often feature abbreviations and jargon that are not common in everyday language.

This means technical translation requires qualified translators who have in-depth technical expertise on the subject-matter to ensure translations are understood and accurate. This high-level knowledge is also critical to ensure correct terminology and industry jargon are used correctly in translations.
A good technical writer possesses both the ability to write well and is also familiar with industry-jargon and terminology. Milengo's dedicated vendor management team go through an exhaustive vetting process with our translators to ensure that their skills match our standards and are relevant to your project needs.
Milengo's ISO 1700:2015 and ISO 18587:2017 certifications guarantee that we deliver only the highest-quality translations through stringent quality assurance processes. This begins with selecting translators that have the right knowledge and experience for your project. After translations are complete, they are reviewed by a second technical translator to ensure the accuracy and clarity of translations.

In the case where you opt for machine translation post-editing, we can customize our machine translation engine to your industry to ensure the right terminology is employed in translations prior to its review by a seasoned technical translator.
Commonly used formats for technical manuals and documents include PDF, MS Office (Word, Powerpoint, or Excel), and InDesign. Milengo can handle the translation of technical documents in almost any file format. If you need some clarifications on the types of file formats we can work with, get in touch and we will advise you on the best way to proceed.
Translation software and tools play an important role in organizing and automating technical translation processes, thus helping to reduce cost and time spent on your translation projects.

Depending on your company's needs, Milengo assembles a customized suite of tools to improve efficiency, speed, and accuracy of translations. These include the likes of computer-assisted translation (CAT) tools, translation memory, termbases, and translation management tools.

Translation management tools are crucial to effectively manage technical translations at scale. This makes it important for your team to be comfortable with the software selected. We give our clients the freedom to choose which translation management tool they wish to use as all our project managers and translators are well-versed with all tools on the market.
The cost of Milengo's technical translation services varies depending on your project's objectives and specifications. This includes factors such as language pairs, volume of content, topical complexity, turnaround times, quality of source text, and specific project requirements.
