The Linguists We Hire for Technical Translations

Across the life science and healthcare industries, CSOFT Health Sciences emphasizes the importance of having professional, in-country translators, particularly for translating technical documents, to capture the subtle nuances of a language that can only be appreciated by those living within a target culture or country. As a knowledge industry, this is crucial for the life sciences, as in-depth understanding of initialisms, technical terminology, and conceptual understandings of complex subject matter is required for the highest-quality and most accurate scientific translation. We only use professional translators with a passion for linguistic excellence, ensuring superior quality and efficiency for every project we deliver.

CSOFT Health Sciences has a well-defined process for qualifying our translators, employing a multifaceted rubric to evaluate their technical accuracy, linguistic style, command of grammar, glossary management ability, knowledge of document tags, and proficiency with translation memory (TM) tools. We not only require our technical linguists to have a minimum of 7 years of professional translation experience, but also recruit those with in-depth subject matter expertise and in-field experience.

In addition, we require that our technical translators excel at technical writing in their target languages, as sound technical writing principles are essential to avoiding technical errors.

Advanced Language Technology

Another important skill we look for in any technical translator we hire is the ability to work with computer-aided translation or computer-assisted translation (CAT) tools for improved translation efficiency and consistency. CSOFT Health Sciences’ use of the latest translation and content management technologies extends to every stage of the medical translation and localization process, with particular emphasis on translation memory and terminology management. We leverage advanced language technology, such as AI and machine translation, to ensure the best ROI.
