Technical Translation Services
If your company sells highly specialised products, you need to be sure that your technical translation agency has the right expertise to understand them and present them in a foreign language accurately. Dialogue’s expertise and experience across a range of highly specialist, technical fields can assure you of the highest quality technical translation.
Technical translation throws up all kind of questions – not least with measurements. Imperial or metric? Do you translate it and convert or do you leave it as is?
3,142 – that’s three thousand, one hundred and forty two to you, but to many people it’s Pi. Our translators know the difference.

To save time and effort your end, it’s best to provide your translation project in the ultimate file format you’ll be using. We will return your translated material back to you in the very same format: XML, html, Illustrator, within software strings or good old-fashioned MS Word.

Over the years Dialogue has provided a fast and professional translation service, allowing us to support generating set customers worldwide.
Our business relationship with Dialogue started many years ago. The company Dialogue UK have been – and still are – our exceptional Partners for helping our company to produce our Machinery Manuals, in many languages and for all over the world. We have tried other translation agencies in the past, however, only if Dialogue translate manuals for our company, we know it will be correct. We look forward to many more years working with our Partners.
Our translations are technical with a distinct style and yet Dialogue still knows the right questions and things to query, which shows that they don’t just translate words but make sure they have an appreciation and understanding for what the document is about and what is needs to reflect.
Dialogue has been a long-time partner of ours for both translation services and language training. We appreciate that they are a family-owned business with a majority of female directors. Their quick and friendly responses, as well as their efforts to ensure we are completely satisfied with our translations make them a true partner to us.
We have used Dialogue Language Services for several years & would highly recommend them. They are always very helpful and I was kept informed at every step of the translation of our documents. They offer a very quick and professional service.
Technical Translation FAQs
You name it, we can handle it: from web-supported files (XLIFF, XML, HTML, txt, csv, odt etc.) to Microsoft formats (doc, ppt, xls, dot), to Adobe (pdf, ai, indd or psd). Or we can translate straight onto your own platform.
Our technical translators are recruited for their professional backgrounds in your industry and specialist knowledge, from civil engineering to technical manuals. Their specialist knowledge combined with our rigorous ISO 17100:2015 QA processes ensure a 100% reliable translation.
While some agencies will always charge a premium as a matter of course, Dialogue will always look at each project on its merits. If the translator needs more time, due to the complexity of the project, you will be advised of any supplement before the translation starts. Technical translation starts from 10p per word.
