Spanish Technical translations

Technical translation is a type of specialized translation involving the translation of texts which relate to technological subject areas or to a practical application of scientific and technological information. Examples of technical documents are user guides, owner’s manuals and technical procedures.

Technical translation covers the translation of many kinds of specialized texts and requires the translator to have  a high level of subject knowledge and mastery of the relevant terminology  and writing stylistics.

The importance of consistent terminology in technical translation, as well as the highly repetitive nature of technical writing makes computer-assisted translation (CAT) using translation memories and terminology databases especially appropriate.

Apart from making texts with technical specialized language accessible to a more general audience, technical translation also involves linguistic features of translating technological texts from the source language to the target language.

A well-trained translator should have the knowledge of both the linguistic and the  aesthetic features of technical translation.
