TECHNICAL TRANSLATION IS THE BREAD AND BUTTER OF WHAT WE DO HERE AT PLG

Technical Translation - ISO

ISO CERTIFIED TECHNICAL TRANSLATION SERVICES

PLG’s co-founder, Eric Zhang, holds a PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Northwestern University, and developed the procedures behind our technical document translation services using his subject expertise and experience. Moreover, our procedures are annually subject to extensive third-party audits to meet ISO 17100 certification standards. In addition, our certified technical translators have experience handling all forms of technical documents including: engineering manuals, drawings, schematics, medical content, chemical safety data sheets, computer coding guides and more.

Technical Document Quality Translation

GLOSSARY CREATION AND TRANSLATION MEMORY FOR TECHNICAL TRANSLATIONS

With each project involving our technical translation services, our project scope includes the creation and maintenance of both a term glossary and translation memory. For instance, we build term glossaries at the start of the project by extracting highly technical and industry specific terminology to ensure proper translation of these key terms. Moreover, we highly recommend client input and feedback as an added layer of quality assurance. Although we don’t require it, it helps further ensure that the technical document translation meets the specific needs of each client. We consistently maintain the Glossary which provides an important reference to ensure that all future technical translation projects are consistent and of the same quality.

In addition, another important procedure in our technical translation service is the creation and maintenance of a translation memory. These are databases of all previous translations that we save under each client’s company profile in our secure server. As a consequence, when new projects are analyzed for word count, they will be cross referenced with the client specific translation memory. Previously translated content will be identified and used, ensuring consistency and reduced cost across all future projects.

TECHNICAL TRANSLATION CLIENT SUCCESS

My request was for safety instructions to be translated into four different languages and to my surprise – This was not a word for word translation but an accurate translation of what needed to be conveyed. For important information such as “Safety” I couldn’t be happier. – Ryan, Stern Pinball
