Chemical Translation Services

Market-leading chemical companies trust us with their critical documentation translations because we deliver unrivalled quality and accuracy every time.

World chemical sales exceed €3.5 billion per year, and with international trade flow at the heart of this booming industry, chemical companies increasingly rely on accurate chemical translation services to give them a competitive advantage. Much more than your average translation company, The Translation People is a true asset to your business because of our extensive experience and expertise in the industry.

Our specialist linguists are trusted by market leaders to translate their critical materials accurately and effectively, and our powerful mix of sector expertise and technical strength guarantees quality chemicals translations which will give you a distinct advantage in the global marketplace.

Expert translators

Our impressive linguist portfolio includes professionals in the chemical sector; you could have a research scientist, chemical engineer, or process control manager translating your material. As a result of their industry experience, they are acutely aware of the value of detailed research and have superb knowledge of chemical vernacular including abbreviations, synonyms, and identifiers. Not only this, but their awareness of international standards and regulatory laws brings precision and conformity to your chemical translation projects.


Collaborating with the industry’s biggest names for over 35 years has given us the extensive project management and linguistic experience to offer a truly tailored experience. From petrochemicals to polymers, paints, and pigments, our ability to quickly understand your requirements and accurately relay them in target languages ensures optimum efficiency, and with countries such as China dominating in chemical sales and production, our proficiency in translating all world languages and scripts gives your chemical translations global impact with local integrity.

Improved consistency

We recognise the importance of consistency across documentation in guaranteeing comprehension, which is why we implement numerous quality controls to improve standardisation throughout our chemical translation services. Assigning projects to preferred translators, creating detailed glossaries of approved terms, conducting in-depth project research, and utilising Translation Memory technology bridges any potential gaps in consistency, for localised content which is unified across projects, departments, and subject matter.

Software localisation

As software systems continue to drive efficiency and responsiveness within the chemical arena, our capabilities in this specialised discipline have become more and move valuable. We cover all aspects from visible content to back-end code, and our meticulous approach has helped various businesses deliver improved usability for their specific target audience, with projects including corporate e-learning portals and online technical libraries.

Multimedia projects

Our excellent reputation comes from supporting industry giants with their chemical translation requirements from start to finish, drawing on our multimedia resources and expertise to translate materials in all formats and any media, including videos needing subtitles and brochure artwork requiring Desktop Publishing. Our full-service solutions are the very reason we can count hundreds of major international names amongst our clients, with sub-sectors as diverse as industrial adhesives, automotive lubricants, agronomics, and biocides all represented.
