What Is Scientific and Academic Translation?

Scientific and academic translation is the process of translating documents pertaining to scientific research, doctoral theses, academic papers, and technical documents from one language to another. Scientific translation involves a prominent level of technical knowledge and expertise, as the content is often complex and specialized. Scientific and academic translators must not only be fluent in the target language, but also possess a deep understanding of the subject matter and terminology involved. This type of translation includes, but is not limited to, research papers, doctoral dissertations, theses, technical reports, conference proceedings, and scientific journals.

Scientific translation services in Northern Europe

Scientific translation services are specialized translation services that focus on translating scientific and technical documents. These documents can include research papers, clinical trials, patents, medical records, and engineering manuals. Scientific translation services are essential for sharing scientific knowledge and research across borders and languages.

Scientific translation services are typically provided by agencies that have a network of translators who are experts in their respective fields. These translators have a deep understanding of the scientific and technical concepts in the texts they translate, as well as the ability to translate these concepts accurately and fluently into the target language.

Scientific translation services can be used for a variety of purposes, including:

  • Sharing research findings with the international community
  • Submitting research papers to international journals
  • Conducting clinical trials in multiple countries
  • Preparing regulatory documentation for medical devices and drugs
  • Translating training materials for multinational companies

When choosing a scientific translation service, it is important to consider the following factors:

  • The experience and expertise of the translators
  • The quality assurance process used by the agency
  • The turnaround time and cost of the service

Here are some of the benefits of using a scientific translation service:

  • Accuracy: Scientific translation services are performed by translators who have a deep understanding of the scientific concepts in the texts they translate. This ensures that the translations are accurate and reliable.
  • Fluency: Scientific translation services are performed by translators who are native speakers of the target language. This ensures that the translations are fluent and idiomatic.
  • Consistency: Scientific translation services typically have a quality assurance process in place to ensure that all translations meet their high standards of quality.
  • Peace of mind: Using a scientific translation service can give you the peace of mind knowing that your translations are being handled by professionals who have the experience and expertise to do the job right.

If you need to translate scientific or technical documents, we recommend that you use a scientific translation service. This will ensure that your translations are accurate, fluent, and consistent.

How a Translation Agency Works
The process of scientific translation, localization and transcreation

Nordic-Baltic Scientific Translation Services

Academic text is written in non-fiction. This means that the text must be objective, correct and fact oriented. Writing academically also means taking a critical and analytical approach, i.e., that one asks questions and formulates problems. It is by being critical-analytical that you can contribute new perspectives on a topic, instead of simply reproducing what others have already written. This also applies to the translation of an academic text.

Translation of Academic and Scientific texts | Price per Word | Cheaper Than Other Nordic Translation Agencies

Depending on the language and subject area, a translation with us costs between EUR 0.08 - 0.18 per word. We offer professional translations, including language review and proofreading 20-25% cheaper than other translation agencies with offices in the Nordics. This is possible because we are a web-based company with a production office in Riga, Latvia, and thus can offer lower prices for your translations than other Nordic translation agencies. (In Sweden, our company is called Baltic Media Translations AB, F tax certificate: Org no. 556675-6499).
