For over 20 years, Jonckers has managed the translation of instruction manuals and user interfaces for a multinational manufacturing equipment and devices company. As the manufacturing industry evolves, so does the localization process, with more specialized and complex machinery requiring comprehensive manuals. Each new product also requires a new user interface and manual to be translated and released.

This case study explores how Jonckers has adapted to these changes to help international manufacturing companies sell and service in the global marketplace without overspending on localization.

The Challenge

The challenge of technical translation is to localize products for different markets while maintaining accuracy and efficiency. Technical terminology is highly specialized, and there are often character limitations when translating user interfaces. Companies need to launch their products simultaneously in all markets, and data protection is crucial.

Jonckers must ensure effective workflows to meet tight deadlines without sacrificing quality and rely on an extra-secure environment to prevent data leaks.
