Chinese to English technical product manual translation
OCT 5, 2016
By Ofer Tirosh
A regular client recently asked the Tomedes translation service team to translate a technical product manual from Chinese to English. Her company manufactures a range of goods in China and exports them to English-speaking destinations around the world. For this type of international trade, high quality English language user manuals are essential, hence the client turning to Tomedes for support.
Our network of professional human translators extends around the world, allowing us to offer a 24/7 service to clients and to respond quickly and efficiently to those who need translation in a hurry. This was just such a request. A small delay in the production of the Chinese version of the product manual meant that the client was pushed for time when it came to translating and printing the English version.
At Tomedes we enjoy a challenge and were delighted to be able to get straight to work on the client’s document in order to ensure her tight timescale was met. She had asked us to provide a desktop publishing service as well as a translation service, so that the manual was print-ready once translated. Again, we were only too happy to help.
Our Mandarin to English translator made short work of the product manual, translating it efficiently into perfect US and UK English (as the client had requested both). As he had worked with the client before, he was familiar with the company’s corporate style and messaging, which helped to speed up the work. We always endeavour to provide continuity with our translators in this way for repeat business clients.
The job was completed successfully, slightly ahead of time, leaving the client with plenty of time to take care of the printing of the manual and its inclusion with the product. She was delighted to have received such good value for money and will be using Tomedes again as soon as her next product becomes available.
