Technology and Technical Translation
For professional services, technical translation services are divided into five categories:
Although these specialties may seem widely divergent, they are, in fact, extremely compatible, thereby providing total translation solutions for an international or ethnic target effort. The ability to offer technical translations, plus high quality marketing translation, voices and recording, provides an ideal solution to meet the special needs of Microsoft, Cisco Systems, Intel and other Fortune 500, plus hundreds of smaller, lesser-known brands with the drive to attract new business.
Translators have the highest qualifications: P.E.s (professional engineers) who are also accredited translators, Certified Public Translators, technical translators accredited by the U.S. State Department, telephony translators, specialists with advanced degrees in translation from overseas universities, PhDs, and other stringent criteria. Translation services also offer reviews by profession-specific engineers, doctors, telecom developers, economists, attorneys, and other experts located directly in the target country.
Some clients require only document translation from English into foreign language, or foreign language into English. There are two levels of pricing, allowing for significant savings. Translations range from 2 pages to 2,000 pages or even more related to construction, mechanical engineering, telecom, legal, environmental clean-up, electronic communication, hardware, software and a wide variety of technical and technology subjects.
Voice of Technology
For some technology companies, voices are part of the product itself, such as IVR and telephony, "talking machines" such as luxury cars and scanners, ATMs, text- to-speech applications, kiosks and other products. The combined language solution (voice plus written documentation, marketing and multimedia) satisfies the broader scope of needs. Professional voice talent are recorded in 90 countries.
