Technical translation services for the industrial sector

“People are the key to ensuring greater efficiency and shaping operations for the future. Ownership should be in the hands of the operations team, i.e. the end users.”

— Mike Bristow, COO for manufacturing logistics at DHL


img-header-idisc-translations-manufacturing Updated

According to CSA Research’s latest report “Can’t Read, Won't Buy”, 65% of people prefer products written in their own language, and 40% of consumers avoid buying in other languages.

Global manufacturing faces an exciting challenge. The implementation of the latest trends like IoT, AI and hyper-personalization requires an extra effort from manufacturers. At the latest Manufacturing Leaders’ Summit, Mike Bristow predicted that, based on DHL explorations, there will be fewer humans doing repetitive tasks. Instead, people will spend more time building strategies and shaping the future of operations.

To ensure that a global level is reached successfully, translation is essential. Specialized translation for the manufacturing industry has always required a deep technical background, but now it goes a step further. Change in technology has never happened so fast and manufacturing-specialized translators have to keep up to date in all sorts of new complex technology trends. It is the only way to deliver the best quality.

Having a manufacturing-specialized translation partner who really understands the latest features of your technology is crucial for your business, and iDISC is the perfect match. Our specialized team of translators and project managers has been helping manufacturers to:

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.
