LingoStar Manual and Catalog Translation Services


Have you been looking for a company with years of experience in translation of manuals and catalogs? You are on the right track!

Globalization with Manual and Catalog Translation

The translation of your manuals and catalogs is fundamental to the success of your company internationally. You cannot rely on specific markets outside of North America to understand English, and in Canada you are required to have documents in both French and English. It is vital to have experienced translators completing work, as everything has to convey the right message and be correct and consistent. Improper translations can inhibit sales and cause safety concerns. Even the smallest errors can result in confusion and misunderstandings, putting your business at risk. For example, if you are sending a technical manual to a client in Hong Kong, it is simply unacceptable to not have your English manual translated accurately into Traditional Chinese beforehand.

Choosing a Qualified Translator for Your Manual or Technical Document

Poor quality translations will cause a decline in sales, and can even pose major safety concerns if technical instructions aren’t being translated accurately. To avoid putting your business in a potentially compromising situation, it is absolutely necessary for you to reach out to professional native speaking human translators. This is especially important if you are in the field of technical/mechanical engineering and medical as mistranslations in these areas can lead to dangerous outcomes and can be the difference between life and death. Picture a construction worker in Ottawa trying to use a piece of dangerous equipment with instructions that are translated poorly into Canadian French. Not a very favorable scenario is likely to unfold in that situation. Finding a qualified translator will not only help you avoid such a situation, but will give your brand/product a much better chance at thriving and appealing to the masses as it is exposed to multiple cultures and languages worldwide.

Contracting the best translators and editors in English to Standard-International French with expertise in medical/pharmaceutical translation, we completed the translation of extensive medical manuals in record time. The documents were reviewed by their on-site medical staff and came back with positive feedback and only minor adjustments. We were proud to be a part of this collaboration!
