Why do I need manufacturing translations?

If your business operates in a global market, you will need to translate your manufacturing documents into other languages. This is crucial for a number of reasons — for one, not everyone speaks English and second, localising manufacturing documents can help you better meet the needs of your target audience.

Manufacturing translation services can actually improve various elements of your business.

  • Customer-facing instruction manuals

    Instruction manuals impact the understanding of the product at hand and in turn, the user’s experience. Manufacturing companies cannot afford errors in a customer-facing instruction manual that could cause accidents when using a product, especially if it poses a risk to the customer’s safety.

  • Customer service and call centre materials

    In the manufacturing sector, the customer service cycle doesn’t end once the product has been sold. Customers may need assistance after the fact, whether it’s support setting up the product, asking questions about the product in general or providing feedback.

    When setting up a business in another country or region, your customer service representatives will need to be prepared with accurate information about the products and/or services you provide so they can answer questions and solve problems related to those products and/or services.

  • Training and safety manuals

    Training manuals are an integral part of any business. If your business is expanding into new countries and regions, your training and safety manuals will need professional translation to meet the needs of local employees — in fact, in many countries, you are legally required to translate training and safety manuals into the country’s official language or languages.

    Plus, translating and localising these documents can assist with maintaining compliance in your manufacturing facilities. Your international teams will have a better understanding of best practices for both safety and quality in the workplace.

  • More accurate and engaging marketing materials

    It’s imperative for your customer-facing marketing materials to undergo professional translation and localisation. Your marketing materials need to consider regional and linguistic nuances — one wrong word or phrase could be offensive or may not make sense in some languages. This can cause a huge amount of damage to your brand.

  • Connecting with a broader audience

    Language translation is a vital component of global manufacturing. Audiences that speak different languages will form their own opinions and impressions of your business — whether they’re employees or customers — based on how well you communicate with them.

    Language cannot be left to chance. No manufacturing business can afford to risk its reputation and success on a global scale through poor translations of its inward and outward-facing documents. 

As you can see, there is a wide range of benefits that come with our manufacturing translation services. Contact us for a free consultation and quote. We’re confident we have the translation, interpreting and localisation services you need for success.

FAQs about our manufacturing translation services

Are manufacturing translations the same as technical translations?

No. Technical translation involves translating texts that are specific to a certain field or discipline like engineering or medicine. Manufacturing translation refers to the translation of documents related to the manufacturing process. At 2M Language Services, we provide both technical and manufacturing translation services.

Are your linguists certified?

Absolutely. All of our Australian translators and interpreters are certified by the National Accreditation Authority for Translators and Interpreters (NAATI) as required by the Department of Home Affairs. They also hold a recognised graduate qualification in translation or interpreting from an institution of higher education or recognised graduate qualification in any other field plus five years of full-time professional experience in translating or interpreting.

Our international translators have advanced country-specific degrees (B.Sc., M.Sc. and PhD) and have previously worked in the manufacturing sector.

We will also handpick a translation team on your behalf, so you can rest assured knowing your translators have in-depth knowledge and experience in your specific industry.

  • ISO 9001:2015 — Quality Management System
  • ISO 17100:2015 — Translation Services
