Terminology management for translations for the energy sector

KERN's specialist translators use relevant terminology databases, technical dictionaries and glossaries that help them to correctly convey the message of the source text to the respective target audience. In addition to this kind of cross-client terminology support, KERN Global Language Services works with you to create, maintain, clean up and supplement company-specific terminology databases, which help to define the know-how of your company as well as distinguish you from the competition. For example, we provide these databases via an online terminology portal, making access as easy as possible.

Process optimization for specialist translations in the energy sector

Considering the high volume of documentation involved in the energy sector, which requires frequent updates and the repeated use of similar passages of text, the use of translation memory systems is simply indispensable as a translation aid. KERN Global Language Services works closely with you and your partners to closely coordinate the processes. The translation process is not only oriented towards costs and expenses, but can also be standardized and automated. We already use various online portals to transfer data securely and efficiently, as well as an automated web-based interface that displays offers and orders. Our Express Service allows you to keep to the tightest of deadlines – completely irrespective of the scope and complexity of the texts.

The confidential handling of your documents while respecting any relevant export restrictions and obtaining authorization for export and/or shipment is a matter of course for us at KERN.

Quality management of specialist translations in the energy industry

A KERN project management team, tailored to meet the needs of customers from the energy sector, the deployment of suitable specialist translators, editors and the effective creation and use of customer and subject-specific terminology and translation memory databases ensure the production of high-quality and targeted translations. In the process, we ensure that the meaning of the source text is fully and correctly rendered in the target language, the translation is clearly worded without spelling or grammatical mistakes, and the terminology is correct and consistent.
Furthermore, quality assurance functions provide support during the proofreading phase and thus ensure that we catch even those mistakes which are not always noticed by human proofreaders, such as inconsistencies between different documents. In addition, content is adapted to the specific linguistic, cultural, and legal requirements of the target market, and the text layout of the translation matched to that of the source text.
