Download our brochure Focus on Energy Translations

The growing internationalization of energy production and activities increasingly calls for scrupulous and strict multilingual management. Technical documents must be accurate, maintaining the unique terminology of the industry, while presented in a voice appropriate for the target market. For example, energy companies entering foreign markets must comply not only with the translation of domestic regulatory and compliance documents, but must also improve their market penetration by translating consumer and marketing related materials.

Translating energy documents simultaneously into multiple languages is one of the typical demands we meet for our clients. In this field, we combine meticulous use of terminology with tight deadlines, legal constraints and technological advances, in a growing number of languages.

Guardian of your specific terminology

How can you be sure that the specific terms, abbreviations and nomenclature used by your firm or department are correctly and consistently translated into different languages, across a large number of documents? Apart from the translator’s expertise, the answer is BIGS® (Built-In Glossary System), our in-house “controlled language” tool that we use as part of our standard procedure. BIGS pre-processes your documents using your customer-specific glossary so that the translator will see all glossary terms flagged, signifying that there is a corresponding, approved translation in our database. As a client, you can access and edit this information via our portal using a secure login and password.
