Crystal-clear communication for a globalized economy
In today’s globalized economy, it is increasingly common for the products we buy to have been manufactured somewhere overseas. For everyone involved in the process of manufacturing and distributing these goods, clear communication across linguistic and cultural barriers is essential. Manufacturers, for example, must be certain of the product specification, and they also may be required to provide supporting documents like user guides and data sheets in a variety of languages. By localizing this content for your target audience, rather than simply translating it, you’ll be able to provide central information with a professional edge that will help your firm stand out from your competition.
A localization project can encompass a wide variety of elements, and here at EQHO, we have experience dealing will everything from internal sales documents, through to marketing materials and user guides. Our specialties include:
Manufacturing standards documents
Quality management systems
Human resources documents
We are experts in localization – we work closely with our clients to ensure finished results that suit their requirements, as well as the needs of their clients and end users. We go beyond standard translations, working with a network of in-country linguists specialized in the manufacturing sector to adapt your content to suit local markets. In addition, our in-house team includes designers, engineers and testers, which enable us to provide a comprehensive range of turnkey services.
For most manufacturing businesses, specialized terminology is a regular occurrence – particularly in technical documents and manuals. To simplify the process of translation, and to save both time and money, we will develop a multilingual terminology glossary to record these words or phrases. Other tools will also be used, such as translation memory and computer-aided translation (CAT) to maximize efficiency, consistency and content leveraging
