Fast, reliable, accurate technical translation services

Technical translation can incorporate a broad spectrum of applications, from scientific or engineering information right through to marketing copy, any document that relies heavily on detailed subject knowledge can be considered technical in nature. Working on this type of document requires a careful  balance of management on behalf of the linguist, they must convey technical information in another language in such a way that imparts a precise reflection of the source information, but also highly sensitive towards the local terminology equivalents.

At K International, we help clients of all sizes communicate with an international audience through specialised technical translation. We ensure your translated documents convey exactly what you need them to, precisely, fluently and without any culture shock. An engineering document translated by our team will read as though it had been penned by an experienced  technical author, native to your target region because, in many cases, this is exactly what happens.
