Translation of standards
One of the most difficult tasks for a translator is translating standards. These normative documents – contain a lot of technical and legal terms and graphic information.
The translation of standards involves translating technical documents that establish guidelines, requirements, or specifications for a particular industry or activity. Standards can cover a wide range of topics, including quality management, environmental management, information technology, safety, and security.
Translation of standards requires specialized knowledge of the subject matter and terminology used in the standards, as well as a thorough understanding of the target language and culture. It is important to ensure that the translated version accurately conveys the same meaning and intent as the original text.
In addition, many standards bodies require that translations be performed by certified translators and reviewed by subject matter experts to ensure accuracy and consistency. This ensures that the translated version of the standard is reliable and can be used by businesses, organizations, and individuals around the world.
TRANSLATION OF STANDARDS: PECULIARITIES
When translating such documents, several difficulties can be encountered:
- The need to retain the original structure of the document or to adapt it to the legislation.
- The presence in the original text of a large amount of numerical information, abbreviations and acronyms, which the translation should also contain.
- Discrepancies in units of measurement. Not all countries use international standards and the translation takes into account the specifics of the country where the ready document will be used
All this requires the translator to have knowledge of various fields of science and technology.
