Aerospace & Aviation Translation FAQs

What is aerospace translation?

At the top level, aerospace translation is the translation of materials in the aerospace industry from their source language to one or more target language(s). This can include everything from passenger safety cards to pilot control manuals, and from marketing materials to software interfaces.

The aerospace industry is international by nature. But there is so much going on behind the scenes that most people wouldn’t consider, and this is where so much aerospace translation takes place. This type of translation makes sure the aerospace industry keeps moving, and that businesses can communicate with customers, stakeholders, and other businesses in other regions.

Our expert aerospace translators combine high levels of linguistic proficiency with in-depth industry experience, ensuring that their translations meet the highest levels of accuracy and able to meet the exacting levels of precision and safety the industry demands.

What are the advantages of translation for aerospace and aviation companies?

Effective translation by industry experts gives aviation companies the peace of mind they need to communicate in additional languages. In an industry where precise communication is crucial to operational safety, there is no room for mistakes. The biggest advantage of aviation translation by expert providers is the knowledge that the required levels of accuracy and quality will be met, whatever the project.

From a business perspective, the translation of business materials in the aerospace industry also gives companies the resources they need to expand into and communicate effectively within new regions. For an airline expanding its routes into a new territory, for example, or for a manufacturer or parts who wishes to sell to businesses in a wider range of regions.

How much do aerospace and aviation translation services cost?

The cost of an aerospace translation project will vary depending on several factors, some of which we’ve outlined below:

  • Complexity of the materials needing translation
  • The type and format of materials
  • The deadline and turnaround time
  • The source language and target language(s)

Rather than give an estimate that may not be accurate, we would advise you to fill in our contact form with information about your project. One of our team can then come back to you with a tailored quote which you can review for suitability. We’re also happy to answer any questions you might have about the project or our processes at the outset, to ensure you move forward from a place of confidence.

If you decide to commission multiple translation projects from The Translation People, you will enjoy savings on subsequent quotes. This is because we expand our translation memory for each client as we complete each project: this repository of words and phrases associated with your business means our translators can more quickly translate copy, and these time savings are passed onto you.

What are translation problems in aviation?

In an industry that must adhere to strict safety standards, problems can arise from low-quality translations. Anyone engaging with materials must come away with a full and accurate understanding to ensure compliance with regulations and the safety of colleagues and customers.

Translation problems in aviation can be avoided by working with translators who have suitably high levels of linguistic and industry experience. As well as being able to translate copy, they must understand the technical terminology and the context in which the materials will be used.

What is an example of aerospace translation?

An example of aerospace translation is the translation of an operating manual from one language into another, to give pilots and engineers from other linguistic backgrounds the ability to use the software or equipment in question.

Another example is the translation of passenger safety cards from the language of an airline’s home country to two or three languages commonly spoken by passengers. This, combined with translated safety briefings before take-off, could correlate with better safety outcomes for passengers in the event of an emergency situation, as a greater majority were able to understand the safety instructions to a degree that enabled successful adherence to safety procedures.
