Technical and scientific translation projects from or into the Basque language

When you translate technical documentation into Basque, you ensure that Basques understand how your product works. The presence of science and technology in everyday life is such that it is essential to plan well in advance the management of technical translations into . Nowadays, translation of technical documents from or into Basque (instructions books, technical proposals, Standard Operating Procedures or Material Data Safety Sheets) is crucial for companies wishing to establish in other territories like the Basque Country…  The difficulty for a translator is twofold: to translate technical terminology correctly, but also to adapt to the local speech culture of your Basque potential leads.

Accuracy and thoroughness in our work are essential, and the slightest error in a technical translation of Basque can have serious consequences. The world of technology relies on clear and concise technical documents. However, who has not come across an instruction manual for an electrical appliance that is totally incomprehensible? Or worse, with grammatical and syntactic errors that impoverish the company’s image in front of our English-speaking or Basque clients.

It is worth remembering that in a technical translation from English into Basque we should always consider two aspects: the technical and the linguistic side. For this reason, and also because translators have to be constantly trained, this type of translation service is usually more expensive than translating a general text.

Basque Technical Documentation is needed to demonstrate compliance with national and international standards and directives. Technical patents, product catalogues or technical drawings: all these documents officially certify that all business and operating procedures are correct and in accordance with legal requirements. 

If you do not submit all this documentation, your company risks losing Basque-speaking customers or, worse, being banned from marketing your product in the Basque Country… Investing in the Basque translation of your technical documentation gives your company long-term security. On the other hand, it is a sign of professionalism towards your customers, employees and business partners in the Basque Country

A good translation shows that your company cares about your employees and suppliers having all the information both in English and in Basque, and that they work in good conditions.

Technical Translations Spanish-English-Basque

Many companies and industries need accurate and reliable technical translations into Basque whenever they acquire products and services from countries like the Basque Country… and these have to comply with domestic compliance processes. Any time you do business with Basque companies, it is vital that you understand exactly what you are buying.

Similarly, when you sell products and and services to other countries (the Basque Country…) you will be compelled to provide your documentation in Basque.

Technical Translation refers to files such as operation manuals, technical sheets or websites containing highly-specialized information. Translation of software strings, patents and user manuals are among the most demanded services. ESmedo is a Technical Translation Company that manages translation projects into any combination between Spanish-English-Basque. We translate, edit and review any kind of technical documentation: product descriptions, tendering documents, technical and scientific reports, Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) or Safety Data Sheets (SDS).

Text Strings

Translation and localization, from Basque or into Basque, of software text strings requires good planning and checking. The translation of software strings is a specific area of technical translation. First of all, and before the translation process begins, the project manager has to correctly import the files in order to extract the text to be translated, leaving the code intact and respecting the character encoding. Strings usually contain isolated and out-of-context words and commands. For that reason, professional technical Basque translators need a reference and some context to do their job well. It is always a good idea to get some screenshots of the software interface.

Patents

Translation of patents from English into Basque are only assigned to translators with a solid linguistic, technical and legal background. Patent drafting uses very specific language, with rigid legal and practical requirements.

The patents describe a number of technical data, referring also to future applications of the invention, but without disclosing vital details.

User manuals

Translating user manuals from Spanish or English into Basque requires a solid knowledge of a particular field, and the ability to express complex concepts in a simple language. This type of translation is in high demand, as all technology companies that do business with the Basque Country, need their user manuals to be properly translated into Basque.

Native Basque linguists

The quality of our mother-tongue Basque translators is based on a meticulous selection of profiles based on academic merit and professional experience as technicians and scientists. Our linguists are native Basques and always translate into any of the Basque variants spoken in the Basque Country

Technical translators not only know the technical terms and phrases. They are acquainted with the subject area and can make knowledgeable decisions based on their expertise.

On the other hand, each sector that relies on technical translations works with specific terminology and sometimes with specific technical jargon. Someone who is not connected with the industry will not be able to provide accurate Basque translations, simply because they are not familiar with the terminology used by doctors, engineers or chemists.

In order for English-Basque technical translations to be cost-effective and professional, specialists rely on Computer Aided Translation tools. These tools allow linguists to offer a quality service no matter how complex the terminology. With a good glossary of terms and a well-managed translation memory, we ensure that translations are consistent throughout. This is essential in !{wpv-post-taxonomy type=”idioma” format=”name”] technical translations, where linguists work with a lot of documentation.

Translation Technologies

For complex technical translation projects for Basque-English or English-Basque we create specialized terminology glossaries, subject to verification and approval by the client. Likewise we build translation memories (Spanish-English-Basque multilingual files), which ensures a consistency in the translation, speeds up the process and leads to significant money savings. We work for clients in the Basque Country among other countries. For each of them we set up specific translation memories and terminology database that they can review and approve.

A quick overview of the Basque language

Basque is a language with no known linguistic relatives, spoken by about 660,000 people, mainly in the Basque Country (Euskal Herria) in northern Spain and southwestern France.

An ancient form of Basque known as the Aquitanian language appeared in Roman inscriptions in Aquitaine, in southwestern France. The inscriptions consist of names of people and gods, and were written during the first and second centuries A.D.

The Basque language first appeared in Latin religious texts, the Emilian Glossesdating back to the 11th century. The first book published in Basque was a collection of poems entitled Linguae Vasconum Primitiae, published by Bernard Detchepare in 1545.

For centuries there was no standard spelling, and Basque was written with Romance spelling conventions supplemented with other signs to represent sounds not present in the Romance languages. In 1964 the Royal Academy of the Basque Language (Euskaltzaindia) published a new orthographic regulation, which met with some resistance at first, but which is now used by almost everyone.
