Linguistic services for the ICT world

Contextual Translation

CLOUD-linguistics can deliver specialized translating services for the ICT world. Our method is called contextual translation. In this method we combine linguistic and ICT knowledge to ensure that your original message is not altered. We do not use automated translation systems because we believe that each word has to be weighed within the overall context.

We rewrite your communications into the target language by:

  • Constantly checking with the overall context of the document;
  • Using the correct technical terms and explaining them when this is necessary for a non-technical audience;
  • Localizing for different language and cultural groups; “not every speaker of the English language is a native speaker!”
