Under the "technical translation" is usually taken to provide the following translation services: – Translation of technical texts (standards, regulations and other normative and technical documentation) in Russian; Average the speed of technological transfer is 5 – 6 pages per one working day. As a rule, regulatory and technical documentation available to the transfer of large volumes (tens and even hundreds of pages). At the same time deadline for transfer is usually small (two to three weeks, sometimes – per month). To accelerate technological transfer large volumes of documents drawn to the work of translators, which significantly reduces lead time. To fragmentation of technical text for translation does not lead to differences in terminology and style and, accordingly, to the deterioration of the quality of the translation, most often in work use Translation Memory (translation memory, executed our translators) – previously translated matching fragments are replaced automatically. This greatly reduces the time and cost of remittances model documents, and helps ensure the unity of the technical terminology. – Revision received the Russian-language text of industry experts, to which this document relates or editor, as well as the design implementation of a technical transfer in accordance with the original (with the layout images, the preparation of drawings, tables and so on.) The main objective of experts in the field of technical translation – the most accurate transmission of professional terms. Their accurate translation requires an absolute understanding of the content of the text.
In this case, the use of a dictionary is not a panacea: the translator, who has a liberal arts education, receives a number of options with a single right, determined from the context, which sometimes not be easy, if we take into account the ambiguity of technical terminology in English. When translation makes the technician, he is able to fully understand the written, but there is another Problem: bad language, and perhaps even Russian – technical education does not imply ownership style. The best option, successfully used by most professionals – advice interpreter with a specialist in the industry to which this document. – Oral and technical translation. An example of an oral technical translation can serve as a support for a foreign engineer and adjuster at start-up equipment commissioning and training.
