From developing a new product to the actual distribution, international communication and collaboration are a must. With that in mind, it’s easy to see how important it is for businesses in the manufacturing industry to optimize their websites and marketing campaigns to appeal to the various cultures they interact with.

Translation in manufacturing means more than changing words
While it’s important to translate your website’s content and continue to do so as new materials are added to the primary language site, there’s much more to comprehensive business translation than simply swapping English for Chinese.
Many countries have different tax codes, systems of measurement, and industry regulations – important factors that machine translations will not account for.
In addition to benefiting from our translators’ linguistic expertise, who can work with proficiency in more than 200 languages, The Translation Company’s clients can rest assured that the content will be customized for the specific market it’s targeting.
Furthermore, we understand how important it is for the content to be translated with precision, as slight wording discrepancies could result in confusion and put engineers and anyone working with machinery at risk.
Technical Translations for Manufacturers
To remain competitive in the manufacturing industries, they have started offshoring production and assembling jobs to locations with low production costs. Several types of multinational industries 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 led to the 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 the manufacturing industry is termed manufacturing translation.

The benefit of manufacturing translation is that it enables the manufacturing industry employees to understand the product specifications and the quality aspects that need to be addressed strictly while manufacturing a product because the information is in the native language.
Thus, for example, 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 as English is spoken only in a specific class of 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 and other manufacturing processes must be done per specific guidelines designed by the standard awarding organization.
If these guidelines are to be followed by the workers, it should be in their native language to understand the “do’s and don’t” while performing their duties. Hence manufacturing translation services help is required to translate the employee handbooks, safety manuals, and guidelines for conduct in the manufacturing industry into 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 know the technicalities involved in the specific manufacturing industry.
For example, a manufacturing translator for a semiconductor manufacturing company could be an electronic engineer with multilingual skills. A translator would know the basic and advanced knowledge of semiconductor components or chip designing, delivering translation work for the semiconductor manufacturing industry with optimum accuracy.
On the other hand, if we consider an 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 them to the target language.
Thus, the above two examples show the need for specialized technical skills to provide manufacturing translation.
