Consultative Approach

Technical advice on integrating your processes 

Acolad has become one of our best partners. We made the decision to move all of our legal content to Acolad because we believed they could handle it. So far, they have confirmed our belief. Things are going much smoother for our legal translations at this point and we’re quite happy with them. I wish we had made the decision earlier.

A customized approach to your technology localization projects

We assign experts in software development, computer technologies, and video games to your project so we can fully understand your challenges and objectives.  

Selecting translators from day one makes it possible to quickly include them in the process and educate them about your work environment. With this approach, you can maintain consistency across all of your products, and we can provide you with exceptional service.  

Our translators can translate technical documents, adapt content to appeal to your target markets, and localize your websites and software. We can also automate your translation requests to guarantee enhanced productivity. 

A multidisciplinary network of ICT expertise

At Acolad, we translate IT texts from a whole range of different sectors and disciplines with our team of experienced translators, software and design experts, project managers and editors who can deliver your project in any format you need. 

Our IT translators are familiar with technical and technology topics such as software development, databases, IT engineering or mobile apps. Our linguists also consistently re-educate themselves as necessary, in order to keep up with the demands of the ever-evolving, constantly progressing changes of information technology.   

Technical Terminology and Quality Technical Translations

Translations for high-tech, information technology and software, like all other technical translations, require accurate terminology to produce the high-quality results.  

We work with industry termbases and proofread every translation to guarantee the accuracy of terminology, clarity and consistency. We can also help you create and maintain your corporate glossary to ensure full brand consistency with your product guidelines. 

Our localization methodologies adhere to quality assurance processes so that we can ensure your specialized translation meets the strict requirements of technical materials.
