Case study

A German manufacturer of rail fastening systems needed a selection of product brochures and product data sheets translating into 6 European languages plus Chinese, Japanese and Korean within maximum 2 weeks. In all there were 24 documents of 3-8 pages each.

The fastening systems are designed for both slab track and conventional ballasted track and are bespoke to the varying rail environments and project requirements in each of the countries. Using its rail sector multilingual term base combined with sector, patent and competitor research, AST was able to use the correct terminology in the 9 languages for the different product types and their technical operating environments.

The project was turned around in 8 working days, giving the client 2 days for in-country proofing of the translations. The client’s verdict: “translations and terminology used were more or less spot on. We were relieved that so few corrections had to be made by our local partner”.

We have additional client relationships in this sector which we are not permitted to disclose due to supplier non-disclosure agreements. To request a copy of our Confidentiality Policy please email office@astls.co.uk
