Maritime industry

The Dutch maritime industry has an excellent international reputation. Our country is leading in the field of shipbuilding, hydraulic engineering and rescue and salvage work. The sector has a strong international orientation and is subject to a huge number of international regulations and procedures. Technical documentation, and its translation, is therefore an inextricable part of the maritime industry.

Technical translations &
the maritime industry

Nearly every maritime activity requires documentation: whether it concerns shipbuilding, offshore or international tenders. Several countries may often be involved in such large projects. Multilingual communication is therefore essential in this sector.

When you want to have maritime documents translated, it is logical that you don’t do it yourself but look for a technical translation agency. It is therefore best to choose a translation agency that uses specialised native speaker translators and revisors, has the required knowledge of the sector and the very specific terminology, but also understands your processes, situation and needs. You then receive a translation that is correct in terms of language and content, uses the right terminology and also seamlessly fits your processes and organisation.

We translate many different texts and documents for the maritime industry. For example:

  • Concept plans for offshore projects relating to noise mitigation systems
  • Manuals for radar equipment
  • Legal documents, such as contracts
  • Training manuals and curricula for maritime training organisations

Our translations for the maritime industry can be used and understood all over the world. In this way, we connect language & technology and complexity & comprehensibility.
