Technical Translations for Manufacturers
In order to sustain in the competitive surrounding manufacturing industries have started off shoring production and assembling jobs to locations with low cost of production. There are several types of multinational industries that have set up manufacturing units in Asian countries or other parts of the globe where labor cost is very cheap.
This trend in manufacturing industries has lead to translation of plant operation manuals, quality control guidelines, technical specifications, safety manuals, site preparation guides, product specification sheets, employee handbooks etc. to the local language where the manufacturing process is to be carried out. This type of translation of information related to manufacturing industry is termed as manufacturing translation.

The benefit of manufacturing translation is that it enables the employees of the manufacturing
industry understand the product specifications required correctly along with the quality aspects that need to be addressed strictly while manufacturing a product because the information is in the native language of the employee.
Thus for e.g. the employee of a manufacturing company in China that may be a US subsidiary would understand the product specifications and technicality along with quality aspects perfectly when the information is translated from English to Chinese language as English is spoken only in specific class of the Chinese.
The employee handbooks and safety manuals are generally for maintaining a specific code of conduct while working in the manufacturing industry. If a company has been ISO certified the day-to-day operations along with other manufacturing processes needs to be done as per specific guidelines designed by the standard awarding organization. If these guidelines are to be followed by the labor than it should be in their native language to make them understand the “do’s and don’t” while performing their duties. Hence manufacturing translation services help is required for translation of the employee handbooks, safety manuals and guidelines for conduct in the manufacturing industry to native languages.
Technical Translators are a Must
As the manufacturing translation includes several technical information of variety corresponding to the type of manufacturing industry the translators performing manufacturing translation must have good knowledge of the technicalities involved in the specific manufacturing industry. For e.g. a manufacturing translator for a semi conductor manufacturing company could be an electronic engineer with multilingual skills. As such a translator would know the basic and advanced knowledge related to semi conductor components or chip designing hence would deliver translation work for the semi conductor manufacturing industry with optimum accuracy.
On the other hand if we consider automobile manufacturing company the manufacturing translator in this field should preferably be an automobile engineer with multiple language skills for understanding the technical aspects correctly and then translating it to the target language. Thus the above two examples make it evident the need of specialized technical skills required for providing manufacturing translation.
