Translation for Energy, Utilities & Chemicals
British and American cars express fuel consumption of cars in “miles per gallon” (mpg). Unfortunately they don’t use the same gallon. The Imperial gallon, still sometimes used in metric Britain, is 4.542 litres, whereas the US gallon is somewhat smaller, at 3.785 litres. So a car which does 30 mpg in England achieves only 25 mpg in the States.
It is exactly this sort of distinction which a low quality translation will slip up on. QuickSilver’s team of qualified and specialised translators are experienced at responding to this sort of challenge, and, working with leading edge translation software, they will ensure the highest possible quality of translation.
We know that, although it is updated regularly, a technical document will rarely change significantly. QuickSilver’s Translation Memory software means that you will only pay for changes made, rather than for the translation of the entire document, each time you adjust a few paragraphs.
