A dedicated technical specialist for every project

The challenge of technical translations when compared to translation from other industries is the unforgiving level of precision that is required. Imagine a numerical typo found in the operating manual of a nuclear power plant, or a significant mistranslation in a patent, these types of errors have the potential to not only start a lawsuit or cause monetary loss, but also cause severe injury.

Waterstone Translations understands that companies simply can’t afford to be exposed to such risks and potential liabilities. We believe that the quality of our translations starts with the quality of our translators. We have therefore developed a systematic screening process which ensures that we only recruit highly skilled translators that add value to our technical translation services. To be a member of our technical translation team, a translator will have completed a technical degree, passed our rigorous testing and must also be a member of one of the internationally recognized professional translation bodies.

Glossaries and Translation Memories

The formulaic and repetitive nature of technical writing makes the usage of Translation Memories (TM) and glossaries particularly appropriate. More so than any other industry, technical translations benefits from the use of TM as it enables the storage of previously translated material. Not only does this mean consistent use of terminology throughout your project, but it also means a reduction in costs.
