ALM provides technical translation services for documentation such as product manuals, user manuals, CAD drawings, catalogues and other technical documents needed to accompany exported products destined for multiple markets abroad.

What technical translation services does ALM offer?

Instruction manuals

Translated with the end user in mind, our instruction manual translation specialists utilise their technical and target market experience to localise documents ready for export.

Product manuals and product catalogues

Product brochures and manuals play a vital role in enabling your brand to sell product ranges overseas successfully. Accuracy is verified using multi-stage translations to ensure consistency of terminology in the final documentation.

OMM (Operating and Maintenance Manuals)

Operating and maintenance manuals ensure equipment such as heavy machinery, specialist tools and advanced medical devices are kept working optimally. With no room for error, ALM undertakes multiple quality review stages to ensure OMMs are precisely translated.

Technical drawings and CAD

Technical drawings and CAD documents regularly feature in technical manuals and can be challenging to translate due to the various formats they are produced in. ALM’s specialists have many years of experience working with technical applications and are experts in providing translations that are both linguistically and technically correct from an engineering perspective.

User Guides and software applications

ALM provides high-quality user guide translation services for various technical systems and engineering products such as industrial machines, vehicles, computer peripherals, electronics, home appliances and software applications.

In-market technical translators

To ensure accuracy, ALM uses in-market technical translators who have a background in technical fields relevant to your project. ALM has the right translator and offers the appropriate language services for the translation of your technical documents.

ALM covers engineering, automotive, manufacturing, machinery and mining industries, and translators are tested for specific subject area expertise in accordance with our ISO 17100 quality standard.

State of the art technical translation technology

Translations are carried out using Translation Memory software as standard. The benefits of this software are consistency and cost reductions over time. It also stores your translated content within a secure area and can be accessed with ease when needed.

ALM can also develop technical glossaries for your specific industry and company to ensure your translator teams are aware of your preferred in-house terminology. ALM also offers machine translation as an option to drive down costs; this is a hybrid approach pairing powerful machine translation engines with a human translator.

Typesetting and formatting

ALM offers an end-to-end translation service with our multilingual DTP service. As technical manuals can be written in variety of formats, our international teams work across both PC and Mac. They can easily work with files in formats such as CAD, Word, FrameMaker or InDesign.

Translations from multiple file formats

The ability to work in many different file formats and apply Translation Memory technology has benefited our clients in more than translation costs alone. Clients such as Ishida Europe, Converging Systems and Carsoe, provide their end customers with high-quality user manual translation and technical manual translations in multiple languages to meet their legal obligations in their target markets. Their technical translation projects are handled by our international team and translated by native speakers and expert multilingual typesetters. This results in happier customers for our clients too.
