Technical manual translation is ; ” the translation of a document containing instructions for installation, operation, use, maintenance, parts list, support, and training requirements for the effective deployment of an equipment, machine, process, or system”. Such translations must be accurate and appeal to the target audience.
It goes without saying that technical manual translations require specialized linguists, with technical background experience. Because of the technical nature of such manuals, it is important to assign it to the right translation company.

At Elite TransLingo, we support all kinds of file formats including but not limited to: Adobe illustrator, InDesign,Photoshop, Autodesk , AutoCAD, and CorelDRAW files.
We consider technical terminology lists as a must-have in all of our technical translations. Because terminology list always help deliver more consistent technical translation work. So the use of terminology list is a regular quality assurance measure. And we apply this process in all of our technical manual translations.
So before we even start in your technical manual translation, our translation project manager will work on a technical terminology list on the language(s) that you choose. Hence we sometimes use translation memories as per our clients request, and for a better consistent translation quality on the entire technical manual.
