Technical translation holds a special place in the world of translation. It is unique in that it typically originates from a very focused and narrow original text, and must adhere to requests put forth by the client regarding the qualities, specialization, accepted terminology, and other factors that are accepted by the client company or organization.
Technical translations are quite different from any other type of translation, having their own language and terminology, and often including many figures, charts, and graphs. More often than not, the volume of a typical technical translation project is large. The nature of the work itself, along with the short deadlines, often calls for the collaboration of several translators, plus a proofreader who assures that the final text has consistent terminology and style. In some cases computer tools can be used for consistency purposes, but even then it is recommended that a human proofreader check the final text to make sure that it reads like one cohesive whole.
