Winning Global Bids: The Critical Role of Translating Technical Documentation

Translating agreements, contracts, patent materials, and proposals for technology projects is crucial for companies looking to compete in the global marketplace. By doing so, they can communicate effectively with potential partners and customers in different countries and regions, thereby expanding their reach and increasing competition in the pre-bid solicitation process.

Moreover, having these documents translated into multiple languages ensures that their message is accurately conveyed to a wider audience, increasing their chances of winning bids and securing contracts in the global market.

Consider the example of a US company that has developed a new technology for renewable energy and wants to bid on a project to build a renewable energy plant in Germany. To participate in the pre-bid solicitation process, they need to submit various documents, including agreements, contracts, patent materials, and proposals.

The Importance of Dialect Usage and Style in Technical Translation

When it comes to technical translation, dialect usage and style are critical factors to consider. To illustrate the importance of dialect usage, consider a car manual that needs to be translated for a vehicle sold only in Japan. The technical translator must use the appropriate Japanese dialect and technical terms for that region to ensure that the manual is understood by its target audience. Failure to do so could lead to confusion and misinterpretation.

Let’s say a car manufacturer produces a car that is sold only in the Kansai region of Japan. The technical manual for this car needs to be translated into Japanese. In this case, it would be important for the technical translator to use the Kansai dialect and appropriate technical terms for that region. For instance, instead of using the standard Japanese word for "brake" (ブレーキ), the translator might use the Kansai dialect word (ブレーキやん). Failure to do so could lead to confusion and misinterpretation among the target audience in the Kansai region.

Similarly, style is essential in technical translation. Take for example a software company producing manuals. These manuals must be consistent in their use of terminology and formatting to enable users to navigate and understand the content with ease. Moreover, the company may opt for a specific writing style to ensure that the manuals are clear and easy to read, with a tone that is suitable for the intended audience. Maintaining a consistent style throughout the document is key to delivering a well-written technical document that is both informative and easy to understand.
