Accurate technology translations

Technical translations that are foolproof thanks to linguistic precision mechanics

Our language professionals have the necessary knowledge for technical translations: they are familiar with the specific terminology and pay attention to formatting. To ensure that cultural aspects – such as the use of symbols – are also taken into account in your documents, we only use translators who translate into their native language.

Product documentation translation

Multilingual product documentation is a wonder of modern translation technology. We’ll take care of everything – with the precision and expertise you’ve come to expect.


Artificial and human intelligence

As an alternative to a technical translation, we also offer machine translation. With our specially developed machine translation engine apoAI, we have a highly developed, trainable translation tool at our disposal. It is particularly useful when large volumes of text need to be translated for internal use.

For an optimal result, we combine the efficiency of the engine with a human feel for language and linguistic correctness. With professional post-editing by the Apostroph proofreading department, you can refine and enhance your translation.

Our desktop publishing team makes technical texts look better

Several design factors play a role in technical translations. For example, non-editable process diagrams, drawings or other graphic representations and elements must be prepared for translation or the design must be reworked after the translation process. Especially when texts are longer, for instance, and Arabic or Chinese script is used, this can present issues in terms of layout. Apostroph’s team of experts will take care of your desktop publishing and ensure that word splits, page breaks, the right reading direction and all other design details are correct in every target language.

The entire process can also be optimised with this service: order your desktop publishing job via our customer portal or optimise the translation process with an interface to your PIM. We will be happy to advise you personally.

Any questions?

Technology savings can be achieved by using repetitions within a text from previous translations. This is made possible by translation memory technology, which memorises passages and terms and suggests them when appropriate. This reduces the translators’ time and effort without compromising on quality. We pass on the resulting savings to you in the form of a discount.

The scope, language combination, degree of difficulty and number of recurring text elements determine how long a language professional needs to complete a translation. To make a realistic suggestion, we analyse your text and then confirm a guaranteed delivery date. This approach has always worked and in the past has meant we are generally able to meet the desired deadlines. For particularly urgent texts, our express service is available around the clock, 365 days a year.

Essentially, we accept all formats. Files that cannot be edited – including PDFs, for example – are converted. If you are unsure whether we can process your format, just ask us.

We are a leading service provider in this area. With our in-house developed apoAI solution for companies, we offer an adaptive neural machine translation system. Machine translations can be obtained in combination with post-editing services – either as raw or automated data.
