Solutions for Automotive customers

In the automotive industry, it goes without saying that all types of product information are provided in the language of the customer. Here, it is important to identify redundancies, because identical texts are often required in different types of media (print/web/software).

The following solutions are therefore particularly interesting:

Teaser Brochures, flyers, newsletters small

Brochures, flyers, newsletters

Use transcreation and direct translation of InDesign files to increase quality and reduce costs – for brochures, flyers, newsletters…

Teaser User manuals and datasheets small

User manuals and datasheets

The PRODOC Fair Price Policy ensures that operating instructions, user mauals, package inserts, and data sheets are translated at favourable prices

Computer Assisted Translation

CAT tools with built-in translation memory and term base for automatic reuse of translations (CAT=Computer-assisted translation)

Target languages for the automotive industry

Of course, our automotive customers can expect translations into all EU languages. In addition, we translate automotive product information into several Eastern European and Asian languages – such as Chinese.

Overview of the most important languages

Framework conditions and requirements

Important global economic sector

More than 100 million automobiles come off the production line every year – without exaggerating, the automobile industry is one of the most important economic sectors in the world – at least in countries such as Germany, Japan, the USA and South Korea.

The automobile industry is in a period of dramatic change. Electromobility and energy storage will become key issues in the future.

International collaboration

Suppliers of the automotive industry

The many suppliers of individual components for vehicles are also part of the automotive industry. For example, even in a small country such as Austria, approximately 30,000 people work for automotive supply companies.

Many of these suppliers can also be found in the industrial automation sector, and for sustainable mobility in the energy technology sector – hence the connection between PRODOC and the automotive industry.

This large quantity of international subcontractors is indispensable for the industry – after all, a modern car consists of no less than 10,000 individual parts.

And technical translations are also indispensable for these highly-specialized companies from different countries, supporting smooth workflows and the best possible exchange of information.

Not just considering these statistics, it is clear that car manufacturing is a highly-complex matter.

Reliable information in multiple languages

If you are dealing with an automotive supplier, problem-free communication is required in the B2B sector.

Individual components of a vehicle are often manufactured in countries in which a completely different language is spoken than that of the car manufacturer, who then installs the parts in his vehicles.

Accordingly, it is important to support the interface between the supplier and the customer with the best possible transparency and uninterrupted information flow. The use of consistent terminology is extremely important.

Ultimately, the manufacturer’s information has to reach the consumer – translations of multilingual user manuals and device software that fulfil the requirements of the industry are the prerequisite for a manufacturer for being able to operate successfully on an international basis.

Services for communication and information

The aspects of communication and information are all the more important for such an industry. And this is where PRODOC Translations makes its services available.

We are active in the areas of device software localization as well as the translation of application reports, catalogs and datasheets.
