Translation process and quality control

Translating a manual or technical document requires specific processes.
PDF to Microsoft Word conversion, preparation of glossaries of terms, layout of diagrams, revision, etc.

1. Conversion from PDF to Word

We can translate in InDesign, but most manuals come to us as editable or scanned PDFs which we convert to Microsoft Word using OCR software and, if necessary, we edit tables and diagrams by hand.

2. Translation of texts

Once we have the text in an editable format, we can start translating. We use industry glossaries and technical reports that have been developed with over 15 years’ experience.

3. Layout of the manual

When the translation is dumped into a graphic format, many texts and diagrams tend to be out of place, so a DTP job is often necessary to adjust elements and spacing.

4. Review and quality control

Once we have the translation of the manual in the final format, complete with graphics and diagrams, it undergoes a final review to verify terminological consistency, fluency, etc.

How much does it cost to translate a manual?

The price of a technical translation depends on the format, the requested deadline and the difficulty of the terminology
