Finances and insurance

International markets are of great significance in the financial sector. Specialized translations are required in the credit services sector, in banking and the stock exchange, invoicing or even for money and productive investments. Financial texts serving as a basis for important decisions place high requirements on the translation. The yardstick for specialist translators in the area of finance is correspondingly high – not only exact terminology, but also the desired style has to be professionally implemented.

Marketing, advertising and PR

Translations in marketing represent a major challenge for translators. In addition to the formal linguistic quality, the focus is on the cultural circumstances and addressing the target group in an appropriate manner. Specialist translators thus have a wide background in the area of literature, journalism or marketing and often have many years of experience in writing and translation. A feeling for language and empathy are the most important skills for a professional translator to be able to make the translation suitable for the target group.

Medicine and pharmaceuticals

The medical sector calls for precise specialist knowledge, a high level of language expertise and a sound basic understanding of medicine. New discoveries relating to illnesses, drugs or treatments are increasing at a breathtaking speed. A translator specialized in medicine therefore has to have his finger on the pulse and find out about any changes through specialist media or regular contact with medical practitioners and scientists. Specialist knowledge is changing and expanding at a rapid pace: In hardly any other sector, investments in research and development are as high as in the medical sector.

Law

Specialized legal texts are often highly complex and abstract. Often, the source text represents a major challenge – primarily for non-legal experts. It is not for nothing that legal texts are checked very extensively by other legal experts. The requirements placed on translators of legal texts are high: A specialist understanding of legal matters, a very good ability to grasp new concepts quickly and a high degree of precision when translating are necessary to be able to correctly assess contracts and documents and to be able to counter legal risks, if necessary. Misunderstandings have to be avoided under all circumstances. In order to ensure that, additional proofreading is indispensable.

Software, Internet and telecommunications

While English was accepted as the "computer language" at the start of the IT age, over the last few years and decades there has been major trend towards localized software products and learning materials. Now, even smaller software packages and tools are offered in several languages to set companies apart from their competitors so they can achieve global distribution. Also, many Internet platforms and online shops want to reach an international audience. In addition to sound knowledge of technology and programming languages, it is primarily the translator's qualified discretion that is required when it comes to a term being translated or whether it is better kept in its original form, because it is an accepted specialist term.

Technology and industry

Your goal is not to win the Nobel Prize for Literature here: The technology and industrial sector calls for accuracy and specialist expertise; aesthetics is of secondary importance. Terminology and consistency play a major role, and the translator has to have sound knowledge in his specialist area to clearly and precisely convey the complex technical circumstances in the target languages.

 

Business and trade

International trade relations do not manage only large corporations any longer, but also lots of medium-sized companies. Global sales, but also purchasing, play a major role. Professional translation, primarily in acquisitions or key contracts, ensures the avoidance of misunderstandings and forms a basis of trust for both trading partners. Ultimately, you also save time, and time – as we all know – is money.
