A dedicated Account Manager is assigned to each of our customers.

Terminology Management and Translation Memory

Our translation technology meticulously records your preferred terminology and the past translations we have completed for you. This allows our linguists to consistently and accurately translate your content and meet your project requirements effortlessly. It also means we can pass on cost savings to you by providing reduced rates for repeated content across your documentation.

Translation Management software

We also use translation management software, which stores all translations in a central location, allows multiple users to work on a translation, all working from a common Translation Memory to ensure consistency. Reviewers can also access the translated text and make amendments which are automatically incorporated into the Translation Memory. This ensures that only the correct amended version of the translated text is incorporated into the database.

Data security and confidentiality

Your content is only ever shared with the essential parties, and additional measures such as secure storage and transfer of your files and signature of NDAs mean that there is never any risk of your data falling into the wrong hands.


Our Energy Translations Process:

  1. Receive the document: You send us the document/s for translation in a variety of methods, including secure file transfer.
  2. Translation Memory: We analyse the document against our Translation Memory database to see whether there is any previously translated content or repeated phrasing, both of which will be translated automatically saving you time and money.
  3. Translation and review: Our expert translators get to work translating the document/s, with draft translations reviewed for accuracy and suitability.
  4. Quality assurance and delivery: Before delivery, the translation undergoes our strict quality assurance process.


Energy Translation FAQs

What is energy translation?

Energy translation refers to the specialist translation of materials in the energy industry. Given the global significance and constantly evolving nature of this industry, businesses need to have the tools in place to be responsive and ready for action – specialist energy translation is designed to make this possible.

Energy translation services are used by companies in gas and oil exploration, by power plant manufacturers, by businesses dealing with governments, and more. This type of translation is carried out by specialists in the field: people with the knowledge and industry experience required to provide accurate, high quality translations every time.

Why is energy translation needed?

With an increasingly connected, environmentally conscious world, the demands placed on the energy industry continue to grow. Businesses operating in this space need to communicate with customers, suppliers, shareholders, and other organisations with accuracy and ease. Energy translation services facilitate seamless communication, paving the way for collaboration, compliance, and customer satisfaction.

Energy translation is also crucial for businesses to ensure they adhere to the legal frameworks in each jurisdiction in which they operate. As the industry continues to evolve, so do the laws and regulations: any businesses unable to understand and demonstrate compliance with these risks falling behind.

What is an example of energy translation?

One example of a translation project that a business in the energy sector might commission is the translation of a user manual for a component in a power plant. Given the sensitive nature and potential safety risks associated with misuse, instructions must be translated accurately, with zero ambiguity. While a general translator or even a piece of translation software may be able to translate the words in the manual, the level of precision made possible by a specialist engineering translator with a grounding in the field is unparalleled.

Here are some other energy translation projects we have worked on in the past, to give an idea of what we can do:

  • Training materials: to ensure that staff at all levels receive training at the level of quality required to build their skills and allow them to work safely and effectively.
  • Technical specifications: to ensure that users of components and machinery have a full, accurate understanding of their design and function.
  • Contracts and other legal documentation: to ensure that communications with other companies is legally sound, and that laws and regulations are adhered to with a demonstrable audit trail.
  • Healthy and safety information: to ensure that users of any machinery or component are fully aware of safety risks, correct operating procedures, and other relevant health and safety considerations.
  • Promotional and marketing materials: so that businesses in the energy industry can advertise and promote their products and services, to more effectively attract custom in new regions.

This is just an indicative list of the types of energy translation projects we can undertake. To find out whether we can help you, please get in touch with details about your project.

How much does energy translation cost?

We offer bespoke pricing for all of our translation projects, whether they be in the engineering industry or beyond. This ensures that our customers pay a price that is fair for the work they commission, rather than overpaying for a one-size-fits-all solution.

When you submit an inquiry, our team will review your project information and get back to you with a tailored quote for your consideration. This will allow you to assess costs and set internal expectations from the project outset.

We are also proud to offer potential cost savings on future projects, made possible by time savings associated with our translation memory processes. This process involves the creation of a database of words, phrases, and concepts associated with your brand, which can be searched for and reused after their initial translation. This removes duplication of effort across future projects, and we are able to pass this saving onto our customers.

Is localisation required in energy translation?

Depending on the project, yes. Localisation involves – as well as translation – adapting material in accordance with the local norms, and in the energy industry this can include ensuring references to units of measurements, laws, or other cultural factors are clearly understandable by the target audience.

A localised document is far more engaging for its users, and in an industry where there are inherent health and safety risks, this is an important consideration.
