Language Scientific is extremely selective in its choice of translators, interpreters, multimedia graphics professionals, localization engineers and project managers. We insist that technical information must be translated by professionals with the appropriate subject-specific background. Adherence to this principle makes our job harder since it restricts us to a narrow circle of qualified translation professionals and increases our costs, but it is what makes the quality of our work stand out and what keeps our clients coming back time and time again.

With each new project, Language Scientific assigns a dedicated project manager as your single point of contact. Our project managers take the time to understand your requirements, style and communication strategy and ask for your input throughout the translation process.

Selecting top-notch technical translators, matching them with appropriate projects, and taking time to understand your needs is not sufficient to produce consistently excellent translations. To minimize the chances of an error or omission, we require that three pairs of expert eyes look at the translation from the beginning to the end: translator, editor and proofreader. Each is a native speaker of the target language and has the appropriate transportation industry background.

We Translate To The Level Of Your Target Audience

Our experts are trained with a focus on taking technical language and translating it for specific populations with a focus on the reader’s reading comprehension. We can tailor translation projects to the an audience of 6th grade rider’s level or to professional highway engineers.

On-Demand Interpreting For The Transportation Industry

Our On-Demand Phone Interpreting service makes instant communication with the limited English proficiency (LEP) population possible. When meeting an LEP individual, a transit official can simply dial our toll-free number, tell the operator the necessary language pair, and a professional interpreter will come on the line within seconds to facilitate the conversation. We also offer scheduled interpreting with advanced notice for conferences, meetings, information sessions and events.

Translation And Interpreting Performed By Transportation Experts

Language Scientific has an Advanced Scientific Knowledge network (ASKnetworkTM) of more than 6,000 translators with advanced degrees and extensive training in engineering and technical sciences. We have years of experience providing translation, localization and interpreting services to large corporations, agencies and the US government in over twenty industries, including transportation.

We have a network of civil engineers, transportation engineers, city planners and transportation-based professionals for each language who are also native speakers and language professionals. For example, for a transit project we would have transportation engineers that specialize in urban transportation performing the translations.

All Language Scientific translators and interpreters hold advanced science, technical, or engineering degrees and have extensive professional work experience—not just translation experience—in their subject areas of expertise. Engineering and technical material is localized and edited by professionals with BS, MS, or PhD degrees in each pertinent subject area; engineering and technical material is translated by the appropriate technical resources.

For example, your consent and complaint forms and written notices in French will be translated and edited by French transportation engineers who happen to be professional translators, not by translators who majored in English literature in a French university and have picked up whatever transportation knowledge they need while doing translation. All translators are native speakers of the target language and translate only into their native language.
