Energy is critical to modern day life. Renewables may be the future, but the technology required to exploit resources such as oil, gas and coal is just as complex as it ever was. The international dimensions of the energy sector mean accurate translation is critical not only to the business, but also to the safety of personnel, associates, clients and end users.
McFelder Translations collaborates with a range of different clients within the energy sector, whether they are Oil and Gas, Power Generation or Renewable Energy. Translation requirements can be diverse but often specialist translation knowledge is essential to accurately translate the technical documentation within this sector.
McFelder only collaborates with native translators with the relevant knowledge to carry out such translations. Each translator is screened to ensure their knowledge and linguistic abilities in the respective sector. Translators who are either qualified engineers or scientists who have worked in the industry or field will have the knowledge and understanding of the specific terminology in order to competently translate the documentation. We use selection procedures to identify from our network of technical translators who are the most suitably qualified to be assigned to each respective project. The Project Manager will also select an additional technical translator to revise the translation.
Translation memories (TMs) are created per translation project and per language combination and are then applied to subsequent translation projects with the specific client. If the translation is edited or modified by the client then these changes are updated in the TM. In this way any changes made by the client are automatically incorporated into any future assignments. The TMs are then provided to the translators prior to embarking on the next project. In many cases the client has a specific company terminology which they require to be incorporated into the translations for terminology consistency in all languages.
TMs can be applied to reduce translation costs if the texts contain repeated text segments therefore the client benefits from cost efficiencies and accurate translations.
McFelder provide a professional and highly responsive personalised service. The standard and range of their technical translations are second to none. Would happily recommend their services without hesitation.
Each time we have used McFelder’s the quality of service, competitive pricing and timescale have been excellent.
