Bedford Translations provides technical translations for a wide variety of global corporations such as Rolls-Royce, Alstom and Bechtel. The specialties covered include but are not limited to mechanical and civil engineering, automotive engineering, telecoms, printing machinery, food processing, storage and materials handling, logistics and transport, electronics, power generation, medical equipment and pharmaceuticals.
Translating technical material demands a high level of understanding and a thorough knowledge of the subject. Patent specifications and claims are generally intricate in nature and the translated patent is a legal document. Software localisation, a key aspect of technical translation, requires a systematic approach to the translation and testing of the software itself, together with its related material such as on-line help and documentation.
Our extensive, well-maintained database allows us to select professionals with appropriate qualifications and experience. And we can monitor and record their performance on a project-by-project basis.
Our technical output is translated and proofread by nationals at every stage. Quality control is aided by building up specialist glossaries, working with your partner companies in overseas sales territories and deploying translation memories to aid consistency and reduce costs.
