The digital revolution is a global phenomenon, one which crossed borders nearly as soon as it began. Thanks to the Internet, innovations in software, apps, and digital technology spread even faster, using phones and computers to connect individual users all over the world.

Most IT translators work exclusively in the field of information technology language services in order to remain fully and continuously immersed in the industry. In such a fast-paced field, they can’t risk missing any new developments.
Digital technology has grown to include a broad range of specializations. Software, hardware, infrastructure, telecommunications, and information security, for example, are each immense industries with their own terminology and intricacies. Each of these fields then intersects with other aspects of our digital lives, such as design and data protection. As a result, IT translators also tend to focus on specific topics. Translating manuals for computer hardware engineers, for example, requires a very different approach than translating an app’s user interface. This level of specialization is key to delivering the most accurate, high-quality translations possible. Some of the types of IT translations we offer include:
