The translation of scientific and technical content requires a command of highly specialised terminology

For several years, scientific innovation has shaken up many sectors, at the heart of which techniques and technology are evolving rapidly. The emergence of new fields opens up tremendous opportunities worldwide. Translation is directly involved in their growth

Go deeper

We cover a wide variety of subject areas

Our past projects have equipped us to carry out detailed subject-specific research. We therefore know which translators worked on each job over the past few years. We categorise projects according to around a hundred different fields, organised under headings and subheadings. This ensures that you benefit from the expertise closest to your subject matter.

Disciplines are becoming increasingly interconnected whether it is chemistry, physics, mechanics, mathematics, robotics, medicine or natural science. Today, the borders between these disciplines tend to blurr. This trend also represents an opportunity for research, which benefits from interdisciplinary perspectives conducive to faster progress.

The emergence of biotechnology, for example, is a good illustration of this new interoperability.

Against this backdrop, due to broadened collaboration and the involvement of teams around the world, communication needs have accelerated and as a result, so have requests for scientific and technical translations.

Different objectives but the same quality

Although science and technology documents are often written in English, it is not unusual to have to translate into other languages. It all depends on the project’s objective and target audience. Depending on whether the content being translated is for a narrow scope of application (research environment) or for commercial purposes, the choice of language must therefore be appropriate. Similarly, if the target audience is the general public, the tone and vocabulary used will need to be adjusted.

Scientific translation generally enables stakeholders to enhance their reputation. More specifically and depending on their strategy, it also helps them to make their research accessible to as many people as possible, to capture new markets, to improve their credibility among their peers or, in certain cases, to spark the interest of investors monitoring the field.

Essential in-depth research

Before a document translation project is launched, we systematically check in with our client to confirm the terminology we should use. Where appropriate, we research the most precise and appropriate terminology for each context. The context is extremely important to guide language choices because, in some cases, many terms can be translated in different ways. Our clients sometimes send us terminology guides written in-house or, failing that, ask us to work on building them together. Depending on the product, there will also be company-specific terminology that should be made consistent with that used in the sector. Unless the client gives specific guidelines, linguists will use the standard language used in the industry. It is therefore important to establish a common framework ahead of the project.

In any case, we like to be sure and do not hesitate to ask our clients for more clarification on the meaning of a term, so we can choose the best translation. For discussions like this, we offer clients a tool that they can use throughout the project if they so wish. It works both ways, of course, if the client needs us to clarify something for us too.
