Translations for the Automation Industry


For more than 20 years, we have been successfully active in the large field of industrial automation. From individual drive elements to industrial communication, we’re experienced in all areas. Numerous recommendations from satisfied customers within the industry appreciate this and maintain a close cooperation with us.

Our translation customers in the automation industry
Our customers include the major manufacturers of switchgears, electronic and mechanical drives, companies specializing in specific niches, and a trade association.

What do we translate?
Translations in the automation field can include, for example, the following types of documents:

  • Handbooks
  • Instruction manuals
  • PLC texts
  • Trade materials
  • Reference books
  • Flyers and brochures
  • Websites
  • Press releases

How do we translate?
We use a Translation Memory for all our technical translations. It supports the human translator by storing segments in the source and target languages during the translation process. If a segment that has already been translated is recognized, the translator receives a proposal that he or she can accept or modify. This gives the technical translations the same consistency as the source text and avoids undesirable synonyms.

– a key area in the world of industrial manufacturing. Traditionally closely associated with mechanical engineering, the industry has faced new challenges for several years now. Information technologies lend intelligence to sensors and actuators and are, therefore, an integral part of Industry 4.0. But automation is also continuing to grow as an integral part of the automotive industry: in the area of electromobility, significant innovations will certainly be made in the coming years. Even in the construction industry, robots are already drilling holes, erecting walls or being used in demolition. According to statistics in World Robotics 2017, more than 1.7 million industrial robots will be installed worldwide by 2020 – most of them in the automotive industry. Driverless transport systems with robot-controlled battery changes are also among the areas that play an important role in automation.

Automation was the first industry we dealt with intensively. This was followed by mechanical engineering, IT and automotive as additional special industries. Thus, you can be sure that we are able to grasp even complex and interdisciplinary interconnections.

We will support you in your communications with your customers, suppliers and, of course, also within your company.

  • With Sprachprofis, we feel we are in very good hands. The translations are not merely straight translations, they are translations into a real (advertising) language with a great intuition for the content to be transformed. And that even faster than many copywriters would produce … The provision of the terminology database for shared use is also a perfect service and helps us enormously as a customer.
