Target languages for the renewable energy sector
Legally required target languages in power engineering
Power engineering is a broad field. Essentially, it depends on whether your products can be used independently or are intended for installation in vehicles, machines or systems.
For stand-alone products with a rated voltage greater than 60 V, you can assume that you must provide installation and operating instructions in the language of the user. Further details are regulated by the standards applicable to your products.
Popular target languages for renewable energies
There are often no legal regulations regarding the required languages when power engineering products are intended for installation in vehicles, machines or systems. Nevertheless, you want to make it as easy as possible for your customers to use the product. Almost all customers in the renewable energy sector have their documents translated into English.
Other popular languages for power engineering, energy production, energy storage and energy distribution:

Requirements for power engineering
Many small and innovative companies
One of the industries in which PRODOC Translations is particularly active is power generation, power distribution, and energy storage.
When it comes to power engineering, large energy producers such as EON or Vattenfall or multinational corporations such as SIEMENS or Alstom usually come to mind first. However, in addition to large energy groups, this sector contains numerous small and medium-sized companies that are particularly active and innovative in the field of renewable energies.
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:
The renewable energies are the area of power engineering that is currently gaining the most market share. This area includes green energy sources such as hydro-electric power, wind power and photovoltaics.
Particularly because they are environmentally friendly technologies, renewable energies are supported by the government in many countries.
Photovoltaics in particularly can often be found in close proximity to the customer, since solar panels can be attached to basically 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
Companies which provide sustainable energy solutions also have points of contact to the automotive industry via energy storage.
Power generation is the overall technology which deals with the production of electrical power.
Companies from many countries often work together here and therefore the documentation is mostly written in English. Translations into English are therefore usually required.
The chemical and thermal processes of energy conversion are the specialist area of energy storage. This includes heat technology, fuel technology, building heating technology and the design of energy devices.
At PRODOC we have particular experience with fuel cell technology.
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 as well as electrical heat technology.
Particularly in this high-tech field, which has many interfaces to automation technology, it is indispensable to use consistent terminology in order to avoid misunderstandings in translated documents.
