    What is Technical Translation?

    If you have come this far, you are looking for a professional technical translation that is clearly differentiated in its final presentation from the different types that exist (legal, financial, sworn, commercial, informative, tourist, gastronomic, academic, literary…)

    You certainly know that technical translations belong to a specialized field of transcription and typesetting of different languages focusing on technical, scientific or specialized texts and documents. It involves the transfer of highly specific information, often related to complex products, technologies and processes, from a source language to a target language. It is written content that usually contains very specific terminology, technical jargon, acronyms and highly specialized concepts related to areas such as engineering, computing, medicine, science, industry, automotive, aeronautics, machine-tools, security and defence… among others.

    Technical translation requires a thorough knowledge of the technical concepts you will be working on, as well as the ability to convey specialized information accurately and clearly in another language.

    Technical translators should also consider the context and adapt the text so that it is understandable and consistent in the target language. This involves making decisions on how best to convey technical information without losing precision, cohesion and accuracy.

    Types of documents translated by an expert in technical translations

    Documents that can be translated in the technical field include users’ manuals, technical specifications, patents, research reports, data sheets, training documents, promotional material, product, parts and accessories catalogues, standards, installation, assembly, repair and maintenance manuals, quality reports, informative material … among others.

    It is common for technical translators to work in collaboration with experts in the relevant field to ensure that the translation is accurate and meets the required technical standards.

    To sum up, technical translation is the process of translating specialized and technical texts, which requires both linguistic skills and specialized knowledge in the relevant field.

    On the other hand, it is important to know which fields technical translation specialists usually work in. Our team has specialised in the areas of aeronautics, renewable energies, machine-tools, security and defence, medical devices and automotive industry. However, if the client so requests, we are also fully capable of acting in the most varied industrial fields: chemistry, construction, IT, architecture, telecommunications… if your sector is not among those mentioned, please contact us without obligation and we will offer you a response, advice and, if required, a tailor-made quote.

    What is technical language

    From a linguistic point of view, technical language refers to a set of specific linguistic terms, expressions and conventions used in a particular technical field or discipline. This type of language is characterised by its precision, conciseness and specialisation, and is designed to communicate technical and scientific information clearly and efficiently between experts in a given field.

    Technical language uses specialized terminology that may not be common or easily understood by people outside the field. These terms will be coined specifically to describe concepts, processes or products unique to a particular discipline. In addition, technical language will make use of particular grammatical structures and stylistic conventions to facilitate accurate communication and avoid ambiguity.

    One of the distinguishing features of technical language is its high specificity. Technical terms are carefully chosen to convey accurate and detailed information within a specialized domain. This implies that speakers in a technical field must have a thorough knowledge of the terminology and linguistic conventions of their field in order to understand and use technical language correctly.

    Technical language may also include diagrams, graphs, formulas and other visual elements to complement verbal communication. These visual elements will be essential to represent complex concepts and provide a graphical representation of technical information.

    In short, technical language is a specialized linguistic system used in technical fields and disciplines to communicate precise and detailed information. It is characterized by its specific terminology, its conciseness and its focus on efficient communication between experts in the field. Technical language is a key tool for the transmission of knowledge and collaboration in specialized areas.

    Specialized Technical Translation

    In any case, the end result of the translation should not be a rambling translation, but a clear and understandable discourse, always faithful and precise, that does not give rise to any kind of error, doubt or ambiguity, oriented towards the receivers of the text so that they understand the process that is being described or recounted.

    Technical writing should therefore make frequent use of technical terms and specialized language, always trying to eliminate any inaccuracies. It will also be possible to resort to the use of neologisms, always with terminological coherence and quality in the texts, maintaining a balance between argumentation and description.

    Finally, full objectivity and descriptive skills in the application of methods and the correct use of tools must be kept in all writing.

    In short, the work of a technical translator must not contain the slightest error, his or her results must be precise, accurate and guarantee maximum fidelity to the original.
