Technical translations that optimize production efficiency
Translation for the mechanical and industrial automation sectors has always been a core business activity for Way2Global. Technical translation includes a wide range of documentation, such as instruction manuals, operation and maintenance manuals, procedures and product catalogues. Translation is a vitally important element for all the big players in the mechanical instruments sector, which precedes the rest of the manufacturing industry supply chain.
Fully compliant, up-to-date translation processes
Translation in the mechanical and industrial automation sector demands that our team of translators, editors and technical advisors have a wide range of specialist expertise spanning machine tools, robotics, automation, metrology, mechatronics, electrical drives and process control. However, knowledge of IT and programming languages is also growing in importance, given the ongoing computerization of machinery and the convergence of new technologies.
To ensure that our knowledge of mechanics and automation remains up to date, Way2Global is in contact with leading industry associations such as ANIE, UCIMU and CECIMO and attends all major international exhibitions, including EMO and IMTS.
The sector is as broad as it is complex, since it covers all areas of the industry, from manufacturing to processing through a huge range of different processes (removal, deformation, welding, moulding, surface treatment and finishing, 3D printing), not to mention product areas including automotive, packaging, aviation, chemicals and pharmaceuticals, logistics, optics and medical devices.
We use glossaries and term bases to provide reassurance to clients that, whatever the language combination, our translations will strictly adhere to the terminology required by legislation and/or clients.
Translation of software for the manufacturing sector
Assigning the translation of manuals and technical documentation to a professional, technologically advanced partner like Way2Global is the key to success for manufacturing companies and manufacturers of automated machines and systems who want to compete in international markets and increase efficiency in terms of capacity, production flexibility and energy savings.
A provider of technical translation must be flexible and act quickly to respond to demand, which is always changing to adapt to individual end user requirements. As such, it’s essential that companies use cutting-edge concepts such as the “smart factory” concept, simulation, modelling and virtual design across the entire production process.
Mechatronic and information standards are high in the manufacturing sector, where production data is integrated with business information systems and maintenance is managed remotely. This makes it essential to have access to a reliable translation company with extensive experience in localizing software, user interfaces, alarm messages and signals. Ultimately, a translation partner needs to know how to make human-machine dialogue simple, intuitive and ergonomic.
Way2Global translates technical manuals using the most advanced technology available in the sector. As a result, for customized solutions, updates or subsequent product releases, we can use previous texts and therefore drastically reduce re-translation costs.
Similarly, in translating CAD designs and flow charts, Way2Global uses digital applications, DTP software and applications and state-of-the-art technology to translate all formats and produce copy that mirrors the original text, regardless of the language requested.
