Depending on the project, great technical translations need great technical illustrations to really do them justice. Here at The Translation People we’ve got 15 years’ experience of producing superb technical illustrations to complement our translations and give your work added clarity and impact.
Technical illustration is a highly specialist skill. It makes sense to use experienced practitioners who really understand their craft and can perfectly visualise the kind of results you expect, then deliver them. Even in today’s highly computerised world, it still takes real expertise to create the kind of illustrations that make product manuals easier to follow or add major visual appeal to a glossy promotional document.
Why should I use The Translation People for technical illustration?
Our technical illustrators have the qualifications, training and real-world professional experience to understand your brief, agree on a detailed project management plan and then produce work that exceeds your expectations. What’s more, using illustrators and translators from the same wider team is one more way of guaranteeing seamless project management and brilliant end results.
As always, flexibility is one of our strong points when it comes to technical illustration, and our services include everything from 2D exploded views through to 3D colour cutaways in a variety of packages such as Isodraw, Illustrator, Photoshop, Autocad and Form Z. We’re also able to import from CAD systems like Pro-Engineer and export to all known file types.
And what about our technical illustration process?
Our technical illustration process is as thorough as you’d expect, and involves consultation at every stage to ensure you get exactly the finished product you need. We’ll provide quotations and timescales and, where appropriate, we’ll also visit your site to see equipment or products for ourselves and to take photographs if it proves necessary. Clients sometimes provide us with engineering drawings and 3D electronic files, together with material from their technical author if they’ve used an author who isn’t a member of our own technical authoring team.
