As technological progress moves on, specialization becomes a fact of life in virtually every industry. When companies in the engineering and IT sector wish to enter a foreign market, they require translation services to localize their product descriptions. However, like the IT and engineering companies themselves, translation companies also have their own specialization.
When a customer is aiming to translate a document in the scientific or industrial field, technical translation services are called for. Technical translation is quite different from general translation. General translation is normally carried out by the translators without any need for specialized knowledge. On the other hand, technical translations will require the translators to understand a range of technical terms and possess relevant industrial knowledge, in order to produce a technically sound document in the target language.
