The Linguists We Hire for Technical Translations

Across industries, CSOFT 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 the culture. As a knowledge industry, this is crucial for the life sciences; in-depth understanding of initialisms, terminology, and conceptual understanding 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, helping ensure superior quality and efficiency for every project we deliver.

CSOFT 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 TM (translation memory) tools. We not only require our technical linguists to have a minimum of seven 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 the “stiffness” associated with amateur translations.

Advanced Language Technology

Another important skill we look for in any technical translator we hire is the ability to work with CAT (Computer-Aided Translation or Computer-Assisted Translation) tools for improved translation efficiency and consistency. Our use of the latest translation and content management technologies extends to every stage of the localization process, with particular emphasis on translation memory and terminology management.
