What is automotive translation?

Automotive translation is considered by most in the industry as a type of technical translation which involves the conversion of documents and other content from one language to another. Automotive translation is performed by experts with linguistic expertise and a comprehensive knowledge of the specific field concerned and of the unique terminology used.

When would you require automotive translation services?

If you or your company is involved in the automotive, manufacturing or transport sectors, it is of course certain or highly likely that you will require automotive translation services. Most automotive companies are present in several countries at least in a retail, commercial, or manufacturing capacity. Below are just a few examples of the automotive content that may require translation:

  • Technical specifications
  • Technical drawings / designs
  • User manuals
  • Parts lists / nomenclature
  • Factory / production line plans
  • Health & Safety documentation
  • Employment manuals
  • Technical training material
  • Staff appraisals, HR material
  • Annual accounts, financial statements
  • Marketing content for dealerships
