The Manufacturing Industry

Extensive experience from the manufacturing industry

To be able to translate everything from technical manuals to brochures, subtitles, web texts and social media posts requires a translator with a deep understanding of both the products and the industry. Each word must be carefully translated and adapted to the target group and culture of the current market.

A translation in the manufacturing industry places high demands on the translator – an incorrectly translated manual not only risks damaging the company's credibility, but also people's health. By cooperating with us at Comactiva, you can ensure that your company communicates correctly and securely.

Professional translations for the manufacturing industry


We at Comactiva have extensive experience in handling translation projects within the manufacturing industry and our network includes knowledgeable translators who are used to similar projects. All our translators live in the country where the relevant language is spoken, and translate only into their native language, ensuring that each translation is of high quality.

To ensure correct terminology, we maintain a close dialogue with you. We also use tools such as translation memories and term databases to make the texts consistent and to reduce your translation costs in the long term.

The challenges of translating for the manufacturing industry


Manufacturing industry terminology can vary considerably, not only between different industries, but also between different companies within the same industry. Keeping the terminology separate and correct is essential for both the credibility of the company and for differentiating itself from the competition. 

The way of expressing yourself differs between different markets - in many parts of Europe, the customer is addressed with formal "you" in plural, instead of "you" in singular. There are also other important differences between the markets. In order to communicate in an inclusive and appealing way, it is required that the translator has deep knowledge of both the language and the culture.
