Materials science refers to the interdisciplinary field that relates to the design or discovery of (usually solid) materials. This broad field of research often intersects with engineering, with discoveries in this domain relating to plastics, ceramics, minerals/gems, and metallurgy providing the source materials for much of modern engineering and manufacturing industries. Whether your work relates to the mining of existing metals or minerals, or to the advanced research involved in developing new polymers, you need accurate materials translation to be able to connect with global partners or audiences.
Materials science encompasses a diverse set of domains that relate to the research, extraction, or production of new or traditional materials. This research may relate to chemistry, physics, or mechanical engineering, or may be intended for use in industrial applications. Even practical applications may vary widely, since they can include anything from traditional metallurgy to cutting-edge research in nanotechnology. This level of specificity demands specialization: that’s why materials translations are handled by professional translators with proven expertise in the field. After all, these are fields of translation that require more than fluency in the languages at hand; materials science translators must also have perfect command of the highly specific terminology used in each sector, as well as strong scientific backgrounds and knowledge of the industry in which the translations will be applied.
Our project managers match each translation assignment to a specialized translator with the right qualifications for the job. Our materials translators may be specialized engineering translators, technical translators, or scientific translators who have chosen to focus on materials science translations, or translators with proven backgrounds in materials themselves. This level of specialization is key for such a dynamic field, in which new discoveries and breakthroughs in producing artificial materials regularly disrupt the sector. Some of our areas of expertise include:
