Technical publications have to be absolutely correct. There’s no scope for error, as a single mistake could come at a huge cost. So when original content and data has to be translated into different languages, consistency, accuracy, and efficiency are the keys to success.

The translation of technical content is often more complex and challenging than many organisations first envisage. From structured content to intelligent information many companies have been using Content Management Systems (CMS) to improve their process efficiency by separating content from the publishing format for years. While Technical Communicators and Translators used to work on complete documents nowadays they mostly only work on new and modified chunks of text.

By using Lionbridge’s Technical Translation Services clients can gain the following benefits:

  • Reduced cost. Integrated process from authoring to localisation and publishing, multi-shore model, and technological innovation.
  • Next generation solutions. More effective, Rich Media and Augmented Reality documentation enhances understanding of delivery.
  • Consistent and better-quality documentation. Expert linguists and stringent production and QA processes lead to consistent quality, and core dedicated client teams assure that knowledge is retained from project to project.
  • Improved speed-to market. Scale, process improvements and automation help maintain milestone achievement.
  • Global presence. Lionbridge can deploy production teams onshore, offshore, or a combination
