Scientific translations require a high level of technical accuracy. It is therefore vital to use the correct scientific technical terminology. The key to this, is how we select the correct technical scientific translators for your assignment. We also apply rigorous QA.

Our approach to scientific translations

We believe selecting the right scientific translators is key to a great translation. This isn’t the whole story though. We need first to ensure that the source text is clear and legible. When we receive the go ahead on your project, we will first check the text for clarity. If we are unclear on anything, we will raise this with you early on. All out translators are selected in accordance with our ISO: 9001 quality management system. Wherever possible, we will use the same scientific translators on your projects. This gives the best consistency, not only in terminology, but also in the style and tone of the text.
