IT & Telecoms Translation FAQs

What are IT & telecoms translation services?

IT & telecoms translation involves the translation of documents and materials from their source language to one or more target languages. Types of translation can include documents and materials like software manuals, software interfaces, marketing materials, user guides, contracts, and more.

With an industry that promotes and facilitates communication between people within countries and around the world, careful and accurate translation is crucial. It enables telecoms businesses to communicate effectively with customers, partners and stakeholders. It also enables customers to engage with marketing materials and services, ensuring smooth ongoing communication.

IT & telecoms translation services are best undertaken by translation specialists with the relevant linguistic and sector-level experience. This ensures that the nuance and meaning of the original copy is retained: as well as being linguistically accurate, people engaging with the translated materials will be able to understand them as originally intended, regardless of their linguistic background.

What are the advantages of translation for IT & telecoms companies?

In an industry with almost unparalleled importance in an increasingly interconnected world, IT & telecoms companies who leverage high quality translation stand to make huge gains. As more regions and populations become better connected, those companies who are able to engage with them and provide the required services are the ones who will profit.

Translation facilitates the entire process, from promoting services, signing contracts, building and maintaining infrastructure, and beyond. At each of these steps a business must be aware of and adhere fully to local laws and regulations: another area where translation can pay dividends. By ensuring understanding and compliance at the outset through accurate translation of documents and conversations, a business can avoid the consequences of non-compliance.

How much do IT & telecoms translation services cost?

Each project is different, which is why we offer bespoke quotes for each and every project we take on. This approach lets us price up projects according to their complexity and the specific requirements, rather than penalising businesses with fees and costs they don’t need to pay.

Some of the factors we take into account when putting together a quote include:

  • The type of materials required for translation (documents, videos, audio)
  • The complexity of the materials
  • Their origin languages, and the target language(s) required
  • Turnaround time

To get an idea of what you might pay for an IT & telecoms translation project, head over to our contact form and provide the details requested. One of our team will review the information and come back to you with a tailored quote. We’ll also be happy to answer any questions you have, with no obligation on your part to move ahead.

We’re also proud to offer reduced project costs to repeat customers. This is made possible by our translation memory processes: with each translation we create and contribute to a database of words and phrases associated with your business. These can be used by translators on future projects to reduce the time taken to translate copy, and the resulting savings are passed on to you.

What are translation problems in the IT & telecoms industry?

Several problems can arise from inadequate translation in the IT & telecoms industry, ranging from technical misunderstandings to serious compliance violations. For an example of the former, consider a user manual translated inaccurately into a user’s language. They would struggle to get their router working, potentially becoming frustrated with your business as a result. If the translation issues extended to the support and resolution process, the situation would be exacerbated.

With regards to more serious problems, a misunderstanding of data compliance legislations arising from incorrect or inaccurate translations could lead to financial penalties that could represent an existential threat to the business involved.

What is an example of IT & telecoms translation?

B2B IT & Telecoms companies need to produce marketing material to inform clients of their services: case studies, blogs, newsletters and email campaigns are all regular types of translation in this industry as companies try to increase their global presence. Likewise, companies in this sector often have to translate the software that accompanies their products. Indeed, sometimes, the product is software, that needs to be translated and localised.

Referring back to the router manual mentioned previously makes for another good example of an IT & telecoms translation. Customers need to be able to set up, configure, and use their telecoms equipment, and as anyone who’s tried to set up a router knows, this can be surprisingly complicated! Now imagine trying to get it set up when the manual is in a language you don’t speak, or when it’s been poorly translated into your mother tongue: almost impossible!

IT & telecoms translation services look to smooth out these potential pain points, giving your customers and partners the ability to effortlessly engage and communicate with your business, whatever the nature of the interaction.
