Multilingual product documentation is about much more than simply meeting statutory requirements. Consistent and clearly structured documentation in the languages of your target customers forms a vital component of your products, adding value and giving you an important competitive edge in international markets!
LÓPEZ-EBRI Fachübersetzungen GmbH offers not only professional translations, but also the added benefit of a reliable procedure for continuous translation workflow that will significantly cut your costs.
We provide individual project management, and will support you throughout the implementation of your multilingual documentation. We will consult with you or, where appropriate, with your technical editors direct. Ideally you should take advantage of our long experience in this complex field at the planning phase of your multilingual translation projects.
We are able to translate your documents from all standard file formats, operating with Mac, Windows and Linux. Furthermore, we provide a complete service, in both linguistic and technical terms – with a translation process certified to ISO 9001 and DIN EN 15038 – and are equally at home with handling content from XML-based content management systems.
In order to comply with current statutory requirements, many companies produce their manuals and technical documentation in 20 or more languages simultaneously.
This means that extremely efficient and well structured translation processes are vital to keep translation costs at an acceptable level. In a streamlined translation process for CMS content (e.g. Schema), only new or modified text should need to be translated. Achieving this demands consistent and professional use of translation memory systems such as Trados or Across. If they are well populated and maintained, these systems can be optimally utilised and contribute to minimising your translation costs. The translated content can then be quickly imported back into your CMS in high quality.
The TechDoc department at LÓPEZ-EBRI Fachübersetzungen GmbH specialises in this entire field and has vast experience in providing customised solutions.
The expertise of the TechDoc department at LÓPEZ-EBRI Fachübersetzungen GmbH is focused on professional production of multilingual technical documentation.
