Cost reduction and streamlining in industrial sector translations

Electric cars are the future. It is widely accepted. In fact, McKinsey predicts that 50% of new cars will be electrified vehicles by 2030. Together with the introduction of autonomous cars, increased connectivity through 5G and IoT, and car sharing, they represent the most important innovation foreseen in the automotive industry over the coming decade.

All these trends will make this industry even more global, and communication even more important. In the factory, having a global supply chain requires effective and easy communication among a brand’s international facilities. On the road, users expect a new car to talk through internal software systems that are becoming fully interactive and more complex by the day.

Translation is crucial to reach and accelerate this development. Today, any specialized translation team for the automotive industry needs more than a mechanics background. This may be enough to translate workshop manuals or user guides, but not to understand the newest technology breakthroughs, and to grasp the unique spirit of each logo.

Having a specialized translation partner who understands the complexity of your technology and respects SAE standards is crucial for the success of your brand. iDISC, with decades of experience in the automotive sector, is the perfect choice.

Translation team project
Assembling a team of 20 people for a three-week project and regrouping three years later.

In 2012, a software company with extensive international reach requested a 20-person team for three weeks to translate a large-scale software release into multiple languages, with just a week’s notice. After the three weeks, they requested the team be downsized to a security patch and bug fix service package of 15 hours a month. Three years later, the company requested the team be reassembled for the release of a new version of the software. The client wanted the same team, posing the challenge of bringing these people back on board. At iDISC we managed to do exactly that.

Synchronizing machine translation project
Synchronizing the machine translation of an online catalog in three languages in less than 24 hours

A world-renowned US-based online vendor of electronics needed to have their website simultaneously updated in three languages: English, Spanish, and French. We developed software to detect any changes made in the English version. Using this software, an automated alert was established for the Spanish and French translators and, in under 24 hours, all necessary content was translated and synchronized across all three languages.
