AI / Machine Translations

Here at Tectrans we like to stay ahead of the technology curve. It therefore makes sense for us to have embraced the new field of AI / machine translations and for us to offer this service to our customers.

While this service is not suitable for all customers, there are many circumstances where a quicker, more lightweight and affordable translation service can be just what's needed.

Machine / AI translations have come a long way in the past 10 years. While they do not compare to the high-quality output of a trained, experienced professional translator, they are getting better every year and they can be useful in many situations.

As one of the many services that Tectrans offers, you may find that AI / Machine Translations are just what you need. All our machine translation output is given at least one round of human “post-editing” – a complete and thorough review process by a qualified professional translator – so you can be sure that some proper human editorial oversight has gone into it.

This AI / Machine Translation service can be useful for situations where speed and cost-effectiveness are most important; where you simply need to know what the text is saying and be able to communicate it, and can’t justify paying for a premium translation service to meet this goal.

A cost effective alternative to standard translations.

A great way to speed up translation work if you’re in a hurry.

Suitable for all sorts of text, where you just need to know what the text says and be able to communicate this effectively.

Does not work with all text. If you require the best quality prose – text written to impress people, to sell your business – then this might not be suitable.


What our customers say…

Dear Sir, Sulzer Pumps has used UKTechtrans on several occasions over the past 13 months or so, for translating documents of various size and complexity from English to Russian language. We have found them to be very diligent and their quality of work is to a high professional standard. Delivery on time is a major requirement with our supply chain and UKTechtrans have performed excellently on this key performance indicator.

I just wanted to thank you all for the speedy turnaround of the last two translation jobs despite the jubilee celebrations and compliment you and your translators on the quality of the work.
You call yourselves UK Techtrans, but it would appear that you offer an all round translation service.

John Scott / Scott Translations

I’ve been working with UK Techtrans Ltd. since 2002 and my predecessor before that, so we’ve been cooperating for some 15-20 years now. I’ve never experienced any problems caused by the distance between the translation bureau in England and my company in Denmark. We communicate through emails: I send my material to the Bureau for quoting, receive a quotation, instruct the bureau to go ahead, and a few days later I have my translated materials back. It is so easy and convenient. The company is highly professional and uses mother-tongue translators with technical insight, which has high priority for me. I have no trouble recoommending this company to others; I’m constantly endorsing it to my colleagues, when they need to have translations done professionally.

We have been working with UK Tech Trans Ltd. since 2007 and we are very happy with the exceptional service we have been given. UK Tech Trans Ltd work in a professional manner translating out technical manuals and quite often on an extremely tight deadline. The Project Manages are helpful and take pride in returning a Manual that has been formatted and ready to print on an agreed deadline. I therefore recommend UK Tech Trans Ltd as an experienced translation agency offering a reliable and professional service.

McCloskey International

Thank you for all the recently translated files. I have received all the CDs, and I am now starting to print the manuals. Everything looks great!
A huge thanks to all the team, - another project completed on time and of high quality. I simply have to press 'print'.

Andy Davis / Kliklok-Woodman

The demands of our customer have been very specific, requiring both Russian and English text on the same (often complex) drawings, and our expectations have been exceeded with the quality of the documentation returned. We have found the DTP and formatting to be of an exceptional quality.

Tectrans will always contact us with any questions prior to translation to ensure correct understanding so that documentation is delivered to us right first time. We have developed an effective working relationship with Tectrans, who we now consider our go-to company for Russian translations.
