Nottingham is a city built on science, and we are proud to contribute to its status as a centre of scientific excellence with our expert scientific translation services.

Selecting the best scientific translators

A good translator is effectively a technical writer, and is in effect authoring text in the target language. For this reason it is vital that scientific translators are specialists in the relevant technical scientific field, as well as translating into their native language. Our translators are normally professionally qualified in translation, often to post-graduate level. Some translation companies suggest that scientists make the best scientific translators, but we don’t agree, as translation itself is a specialist discipline requiring a high level of training and specialist expertise. All translators are terminologists, as a result of handling specialist terminology in their chosen area of specialism.

We understand complex scientific terminology, and carefully select the correct wording in the target language to provide a high quality scientific translation that is true to the original.

Some examples of our type of work includes translating data sheets, academic papers, product leaflets and clinical trials manuals, although our teams translate a wide range of technical scientific documents.

Proofing Your Scientific Translation

Our commitment to quality is total. As a translation company, we understand that even the very best translators are fallible. For this reason, we use independent QA and linguistic validation, and as a result, make absolutely sure that our scientific translation work is clear, correct and accessible.

We can build glossaries of client specific terminology, or use existing glossaries, while background material provided by the client, is of primary importance, to ensure best consistency between projects. The business is ISO: 9001 certified.
