TECHNICAL TRANSLATION IS THE BREAD AND BUTTER OF WHAT WE DO HERE AT PLG
ISO CERTIFIED TRANSLATION SERVICES
PLG’s co-founder, Eric Zhang, holds a PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Northwestern University, and used his subject expertise and experience to develop procedures and requirements for the translation of technical content. Our procedures have since undergone extensive third-party audits to become ISO 17100 certified. Our certified translators have experience handling all forms of engineering manuals, drawings, schematics, medical content, chemical safety data sheets, computer coding guides and more.
GLOSSARY BUILD AND TRANSLATION MEMORY
With all technical translation our project scope includes the creation and maintenance of a term glossary and translation memory. Moreover, the term glossaries are built at the start of the project, extracting highly technical and industry specific terminology to ensure proper translation of these key terms. During this process we encourage client input and feedback whenever possible. As a result, this sets the project on the right path and ensures translation quality and consistency for future projects as well.
The translation memory is saved under your company profile on our secure server, so when you need new translations, we can reference previously translated content to ensure consistency and reduce costs across projects.

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
