Every day, countless pieces of information are exchanged between domestic and foreign companies and consumers. In a globalized world, rapidly available technical translations are not just a choice—they’re a necessity.

Technical translations have their own specific character. In this highly specialized field, translators translate documents originally written by skilled technical writers. Therefore, the translators tasked with these jobs must be just as skilled as those same technical writers—and they must be bilingual, too. The presence of specialized terminology is a defining feature of technical texts, and these documents—most often owner’s manuals, user guides, etc.—deal with the practical application of technological and scientific information. In short, it is a complicated field of translation in which linguists must not only be skilled writers, they must also be able to synthesize highly technical information and make it easily readable to the masses.

That’s why at Metropolitan Translations, we put our technical translators to the test. We work with translators who have proven experience in technical writing and complementary formal education. All of our prospective technical translators must pass rigorous translation tests before being added to our roster.

Perfect Translations Every Time, Guaranteed.

Terminology that sounds familiar

You need to have a consistent voice across all written materials. In a field where understanding is critical, our comprehensive terminology management is a lifesaver.

We develop specialized termbases from your official vocabularies and company style guides. Our translators employ the right terms—consistently—throughout your materials. Maintaining a uniform voice leads to better client trust and a more professional work product.

Setting up a termbase enforces consistency, reduces the chance for rework, and can reduce time frames during tight deadlines. What’s more, leveraging previously translated text may save translation costs over time.
