Rail Translation Services

For over 35 years industry leaders have come to us for clear, accurate and effective rail translations.

Given the international nature of the rail industry, a trusted translation provider with in-depth knowledge of industry terminology, legislation and practice is key to success on a global scale. The Translation People provides high quality rail translation services which can facilitate and cement international business relationships, whether you need to translate a technical document, respond to an overseas tender or produce marketing material for use in other countries.

Over the last 36 years, our translation services have helped numerous clients within the rail industry develop their international operations on a global scale, including manufacturers of on-board CCTV systems, railway infrastructure construction companies, railway signalling software developers and major UK rail franchises.

Specialist linguists with experience in your industry

Our rigorous quality assurance standards (in accordance with ISO 9001:2015) ensure that we have a team of linguists with specialised knowledge of the rail industry who are able to provide precise, accurate translations drawing on insider understanding of the sector.

Quality service 24 / 7

No matter the time or location, our workflow automation processes provide an instant quotation and ensure that you receive your translated documentation on schedule with minimum hassle. Your dedicated Account Manager will guarantee that your projects are completed to your standards and will provide attentive support throughout the project lifecycle.

Data security and confidentiality

We understand your need to keep documents confidential and to this end we strictly limit how your content is shared. Any rail translations will only be shared with the essential parties, all of whom have signed suitable NDAs, and your files will be stored and transferred using our secure server.

Terminology Management and Translation Memory

We use sophisticated translation technology which securely records translations we complete for a particular client.  This software provides two benefits: firstly, it facilitates more consistent translations and, secondly, it allows us to reduce our rates for repeated content, passing the savings engendered directly on to you. We work with our clients to produce glossaries of preferred terminology to ensure that translations consistently meet and exceed your expectations.

Seamless integration with your technology

We work with numerous file types used in the rail industry, including .xml and .xliff, ensuring your product designs and technical specifications are communicated with expertise across any language barrier.

Cultural adaptation of your content

When localising your content for multiple countries, it’s essential to know cultural nuances that inevitably affect customer choices. This doesn’t just include the words you use, but also the images, symbols and colours you use in an advertisement. We can provide additional consultation on what will make your content speak to anyone, anywhere.
