Our technical authors are experienced writers with special technical product knowledge, and their work embraces sectors as diverse as aerospace and defence through to electronics and mining. Combining their writing and language skills with knowledge of technical industries, they're able to produce the sort of user manuals, company catalogues and promotional materials that explain products and services with unparalleled detail and clarity.
The end result is documents that do their job far more effectively than those written by regular writers and, ultimately, this brings benefits like increased sales, greater user satisfaction and increased customer loyalty.
Why should I use The Translation People for my technical authoring?
As well as 30 years' experience, famously smooth project management and finished work that's delivered on time and within budget, we've got the flexibility to provide technical writers who operate in almost every world language and formats ranging from hard copy to SGML/XML.
Not only that, our technical writers are available to work either on or off site, and they collaborate closely with our own technical illustrators for even more effective and integrated end results. They're also familiar with the recognised specifications of particular industries, such as ATA 100, AECMA 1000D and 2000D, as well as controlled languages like Simplified English for eliminating ambiguity and ensuring consistent use of terminology. If the source document is written with translation in mind from the outset, it's possible to save significant time and money when it comes to carrying out that translation.
Lastly, our certification to ISO 9001:2008 reflects the rigorous quality management system we use throughout the technical authoring process, which means you always get exactly the finished results we promise.
What's the difference between a writer and a technical author?
Even though it might involve research, a conventional writer's work is often either creative or promotional and usually intended to inspire the reader. In contrast, technical authors produce detailed factual work, using organisation, research and a very careful writing style to simplify often complex technical information. The key mission of a technical writer isn't to inspire, but to provide clear and accurate information in a way that their audience can quickly, easily and completely understand.
