International Translations Limited has specialised in technical translations since it’s inception over 40 years ago.

The work we produce ranges from automotive manuals to lab reports, research papers, instructions for use, quick reference guides, and data sets.

For every project, we assign a linguist that is not only highly qualified in translation but who is also a specialist in that particular subject area to ensure that all of the industry-specific jargon and terminology is translated correctly and accurately.

We regularly carry out work for those in the following industries: Chemical, oil and gas, aerospace – particularly the translation of aircraft manuals and updates, engineering (previous translations include reports regarding wind farm projects off the northern coast of Germany, a project on a rail network in South America, a translation to do with the Channel Tunnel, translating texts for the automobile industry), the sciences (scientific research papers, QA procedures, journal articles) Information Technology, electronics and telecommunications.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I be sure of the quality and confidentiality of your service?

All of our translators have a postgraduate degree in translation and/or interpreting, a minimum of 5 years’ experience and they only translate into their native language so you can rest assured that you will receive the highest quality work on your projects. All work is proofread by the translator and if required, we can get a second linguist to check over the translation for you.

 

We operate a strict client confidentiality code meaning that you can be sure that the contents of any documents will be treated with sensitivity.

How do you price your services?
Translation costing-We quote most translations per thousand words. The price will vary depending on the languages involved. We also factor in timescale and document complexity into our pricing as well and as a result, we quote on sight of the document and each project is priced individually.
What’s the difference between machine translation, computer-assisted, and human translation?
Human translation is when the translation is performed by humans without the help of a computer program. With computer-assisted translation, it is still the human who carries out the actual translation, only the computer will store the translation of each word or phrase in its translation memory. When that particular word or phrase is entered again, it will auto-translate it. The translator has the ability to confirm or correct the translation so that the context is correct.  Machine translation is literally just that, a translation carried out by a machine. Machine translation has drastically improved since its first invention, and there is a place for it for translating basic holiday phrases or just to get a basic understanding of something but when it comes to any text that is more technical or for marketing or customer facing purposes, human translation wins every time. Humans understand context, which a machine cannot and so will always come out on top in terms of producing high-quality translations.
Can I get my website translated?
Of course! And you should if you want to do business in foreign markets as according to a 2011 survey by Gallup, 90% of people prefer to read websites in their native language and a 2014 survey by the Common Sense Advisory showed that 75% of people prefer to read product or service information in their language on the internet prior to committing to a purchase.
What kind of certification do you provide?
We offer translation certification stating that the translation is a true and accurate translation of the original document and stamp this with a home office approved stamp so this can be used for official documentation. We can also get a document notarised through a notary public official.
