Specialist translations tailored to the logistics and transport sector

The complex cross-border requirements of logistical processes – whether it’s in automotive logistics, food logistics, spare parts services or branch logistics – can often only be met through effective foreign-language communication in the form of specialist translations. This is because, alongside conventional handling services and transportation by road, rail, air or sea, complex supply chain processes are increasingly networked, planned, carried out and monitored on an international level. KERN Global Language Services has been supporting businesses in the field of logistics and transport for over 50 years now, rising to the challenges posed by increasingly strong international networking in the sector.

Terminology management for specialist translations for the logistics and transport industry

Our KERN logistics translators use specialized terminology databases, dictionaries and glossaries to communicate your company’s unique selling propositions in top-class language quality in any world language.

In close cooperation with your company, KERN Global Language Services establishes an individual terminology database, which serves to linguistically harmonize industry-specific knowledge. The KERN Translation Engineering team manages and maintains the language data and checks your translations for consistent application of your terminology guidelines.

Seamless integration of terminology and translation memory databases into the translation environment allows for automated content update and maintenance of the databases. This leads to significant cost savings and a successful integration of the translation process into your business processes.

Process optimization of specialist translations for the logistics and transport industry

Even in the case of projects with tight deadlines, KERN Global Language Services can ensure that the deadlines set are adhered to, regardless of the text size and the degree of difficulty. Our express service enables the realization of projects of any size. In particular, when dealing with complex processes and a large amount of documentation requirements, tailor-made workflow management solutions such as the web-based KERN portal4client™ portal solution and translation memory systems prove to be extremely beneficial.

Thanks to the application of these specialized technologies, we are able to accelerate the translation process, especially in the case of large volumes of text with recurring passages, for example in consignment notes, delivery conditions or item descriptions for catalogs and e-commerce. This not only leads to greater terminology and style consistency, but also enables you to deliver relevant information at the right time.

Quality management of specialist translations for the logistics and transport industry

The project managers of KERN Global Language Services have extensive experience in the translation of all types of texts in the field of logistics and transport. This ensures that the right specialist translators and reviewers are used for your projects. Our translation management portal is designed individually for you and provides all participants with up-to-date information on the progress of your project.

We ensure linguistic consistency through the use of translation memory systems and terminology databases. In addition, the translation is thoroughly checked in terms of style, spelling and completeness. Even the most complex translation requirements are taken into consideration in the quality assurance process. A catalog of rules and jointly defined quality parameters is used, which makes quality assurance not only more transparent, but also multi-stage if desired.

Automated quality assurance functions also assist in the review phase, helping to identify errors that cannot be seen by the naked eye, such as inconsistencies between documents. In addition, content will be adapted to the linguistic, cultural and legal realities of the target market and the translation text layout will also be optimized.
