Scientific Translation Services

Scientific Sector Succeeds With Precise Translations

Our modern world is underpinned by science, from semiconductors to advanced pharmaceuticals. Today’s research is no longer the preserve of isolated scientists beavering away in lonely laboratories, but is a multinational and multicentre endeavour, whether in the university or industrial sectors. The international nature of scientific projects has led to an increasing requirement to ensure that those working in or selling to the field can produce documentation that is appropriate for particular localities. Globalisation has led to the need for the localisation of scientific texts. High quality scientific translation services are essential if you want to ensure your message is transmitted free from error or ambiguity.

At TW Languages, we offer a one-stop hub for all your scientific translation needs. Our scientific translators have the knowledge to elucidate the most obscure technical jargon, giving accurate documentation in your chosen language. Our scientific translation services can help you sell your products or services, obtain patents or have scientific papers published in a wide variety of localities across the globe.

Our Scientific Translators Offer Outstanding Outcomes

TW Languages has a high-level team of translators, ready to quickly react to your needs. Our translators are not just professional in-country translators, they’re also qualified and experienced in your particular field. Our scientific translators are fully aware that accuracy is vital, particularly when translating detailed experimental methods.

Our team pride themselves on their knowledge of the intricacies of local languages, making sure that both scientific and business terms are precisely translated. We realise that scientific translation is full of pitfalls for the unwary (for example, ‘Benzin’ in German is not the same as ‘benzene’ in English). Despite having access to the latest technological translation software, all our output is carefully examined by our experienced scientific translators to guarantee the correct context and overall accuracy.

    Scientific translation refers to the translation of texts to communicate or transmit scientific content in another language, culture and, perhaps, context.

    The main characteristic of scientific translation is the use of highly specialised terminology that is specific to each field. Scientific texts and documents often contain formulas, acronyms and abbreviations that the translator needs to be familiar with to be able to accurately translate the same data.

    Scientific translations are theoretical texts that need to be read slowly and are aimed at gaining knowledge. Technical translation is aimed at communicating the application of science as a means to obtaining a practical result that is immediate.

    The six main scientific translation theories are: sociological, communicational, hermeneutic, linguistic, literary and semiotic.
