Technology and globalization: Technical translations German to English

Today’s world is characterized by rapid technical developments and globalization. Against this background, technical translations have become increasingly important. On the one hand, they are the prerequisite for understanding and applying complex technologies. On the other hand, they also ensure international cooperation within the important technology sectors.

The PRODOC translation agency for English offers a comprehensive portfolio of professional services in the field of technical translation German English. In this way, we acknowledge the fact that precise linguistic transmission of technical content is an essential basis for international cooperation. In the next section, you will learn how the PRODOC German to English translators work and which types of documents are the main focus.

Technical knowledge combined with linguistic expertise

A literary translator with an excellent feeling for language would be overwhelmed by the translation of a technical text. And a technical expert without strong linguistic skills would not be able to produce a high-quality technical translation either. For this reason, our translation agency selects its employees for English according to both criteria.

Our German to English translators are either qualified engineers or qualified technical translators. At the same time, as native speakers, they have excellent linguistic knowledge and skills. As a result, we produce high-quality specialist translations of technical documentation, websites, software, marketing texts or other documents. Our translations are made by professionals and are intended for professionals. They enable precise international communication, safe operation of complex technical systems and fruitful cooperation across all national borders.

Of course, we also offer other language combinations with German or English as source language in our translation agency:

  • French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese
  • Norwegian, Swedish, Finnish, Danish
  • Russian, Polish, Czech
  • Chinese, Japanese, Korean and many more.

English plays a prominent role as lingua franca

Whether it is communication between nations or exchange in the fields of technology and science: English is the most important language today. In the technical field, it not only enables worldwide exchange between experts. It also serves as a documentation language for the safe operation and maintenance of complex systems. For this reason, English is also the standard for maintenance documentation in the aerospace industry.

Against this background, it can be explained that German to English translation is in particular high demand in our company. Our specialist translators naturally cover both British English and US English. Please bear in mind that the differences here, especially in the technical area, are considerable. Specific terms are not only written differently, but also have a different meaning.

Noah Webster’s spelling reform of 1806 had several consequences for the spelling of present-day American English. The main differences to British English is the adaptation in the spelling of words of French or Latin origin towards their pronunciation, the different use of the endings -ce and -se, the exclusive use of the suffix -ize in verbs such as (to) organize or (to) colonize, and the preference for shorter and simplified spellings.

Translate German to English: Precision as the basis for safety and success

As they are active in the technical field, our clients are used to work with the greatest possible precision. Of course, this precision must also be maintained when dealing with international documentation, user manuals, information texts and marketing texts. Any deviation entails risks that would not only affect the smooth handling of equipment, machines and plants. Occupational safety is also acutely endangered if technical translations are not perfect.

With this in mind, it is particularly important to us that we are certified according to EN ISO ISO 17100. This certificate stands for the highest quality of translation agencies. The new certification not only covers all the standards from the previous EN 15038, but also tests the qualifications of German to English translators. In addition, the certificate ensures that the team members are continuously trained and educated.

As a client, you benefit not only from PRODOC’s outstanding technical expertise for German to English technical translations, high customer friendliness and optimal organization, but also from the fact that the PRODOC Translation Agency is a reliable partner for you. You can also always rely on impeccable translation quality in view of the certification.
