Our Managing Director is an electrical engineer and has studied power engineering – this is where our origins lie…
One of the industries in which PRODOC Translations is particularly active is power engineering. This is a branch of industry that basically supplies the tools and technologies that are the basis of every modern economy. Where would the leading industrial nations be today without the availability of energy at all times?
As well as large energy corporations, there are many large and medium-sized companies behind the complex infrastructures found in this industry.
And these are precisely the companies for which PRODOC Translations produces technical translations in many languages.
Specialist areas of power engineering
Power engineering is an extremely wide, interdisciplinary field. Its foundations are physics, particularly thermodynamics and nuclear physics, as well as chemistry, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, earth sciences and mining, meteorology and many other areas. The industries can be roughly grouped into the following areas:
Electrical power engineering
When we speak of electrical power engineering, we mean the generation and use of electrical energy and the redistribution and conversion thereof.
This includes electrical machinery, transformer stations and substations, electrical lines, power station management and power electronics, and also electrical heat
Especially in this highly technological area, which has many interfaces to industrial automation, there is considerable demand for high-quality technical translation, provided by PRODOC Translations into many languages.
Sustainable power engineering
Green power engineering is the area of power engineering which currently has the biggest share of the market. This area includes green energy sources such as hydro-electric power, wind power and photovoltaics.
Particularly because they are environmentally friendly technologies, green power engineering is supported by the government in many countries.
Photovoltaics in particularly can often be found in close proximity to the customer, since solar panels can basically be attached to any building.
Not least because of this, the demand for multilingual translations of user manuals, datasheets and catalogues is relatively high in this case.
Industry trend Electromobility
Power station technology
Power plant engineering is the overall technology which deals with the production of electricalpower.
Energy process technology
The chemical and thermal processes of energy conversion are the specialist area of energy process technology. This includes heat technology, fuel technology, building heating technology and the design of energy devices.
Energy machinery is a very important area of power engineering.
This includes gas, water and wind turbines, steam generators, pumps, fans and compressors, for example. Basically, all these elements are used in almost every kind of power plant during energy conversion.
PRODOC Translations’ expert knowledge in the power engineering sector
Companies which are active in the power engineering sector were among the first customers of PRODOC Translations. This is because the managing director of PRODOC Translations originally came from this sector.
Precisely for this reason we are particularly experienced in this area as far as technical translations are concerned. Our customers in this area are mainly medium-sized German companies with between 100 and 1,000 employees.
UPS or Uninterruptible Power Supply
Energy storage systems for renewable energy
High-frequency power supply system
Power supply system for Safety at work
Creation and translation of documents for the power engineering sector
For the power engineering sector, we create Technical Documentation and Technical Translations for User Manuals, Datasheets, Catalogs, Application Reports, and Device Software.
In our blog on the subject of translations you will find important notes concerning the optimization of different types of documents such as user manuals and datasheets. The respective posts are marked with the tag Optimization.
Creation and translation of websites
We are familiar with WordPress and love to create websites for our power engineering customers using this tool.
Another service we provide is the regular maintenance of the websites in order to keep them up to date.
Languages and language combinations
Since we mainly collaborate with power engineering customers who need German and English texts translated, we provide translations into all of the main European languages and other Eastern European and Asian languages from both German and English.
An overview of the most popular Language Combinations can be found in separate posts.
Of course, all of our translation services are certified in accordance with ISO 17100.
