    Legal framework conditions

    For customers from the in
    dustrial automation or power engineering sector, usually there are no regulations that specify the languages into which their English documentation is to be translated.
    Nevertheless, German companies with English as the corporate language still usually wish to have their own documents on hand in German and therefore have them translated from English to German.

    Target market: Germany

    For our clients from abroad, Germany is the largest target market, making the English to German technical translation important for them.

English as the basis for translations to Asian languages

  • Problematic language combinations

    For translations into Asian languages, there are many, e.g., Chinese who master English. If, however, a text needs to be translated from Italianto Chinese, it is difficult to find a Chinese translator who is both technically competent and who speaks Italian.

    The solution: English as an intermediate language

    In most cases,a translation from the source language into English serves as the basis. The English texts are then translated into the desired Asian language, e.g., English to Chinese.

    This is often the best choice – even ifsome blurring automatically occurs through double translation!

  • Proper presentation of the English translation

    Depends on the character set used

    • When you translate from English to other Western European languages, the same font can usually be used for the source and target languages.
    • When you translate from English to Eastern European languages, it may be necessary to select a different font if some characters are not presented correctly.
    • When you translate from English to Asian languages, the use of 2-bytefonts is compulsory. Before starting the technical translation, a check should be performed to determine whether the used software is Unicode capable and whether a suitable font is available.

    Our post regarding fonts provides detailed information regarding character sets.

  • Examples for source languages
