Linamar – Translation of specification sheets from well-known automotive producers into English

The company

Powertrain solutions for the global automotive industry – constant process improvement to meet their customers' demands.

Engine components, such as cylinder blocks & cylinder heads, cam shafts, and main rods – Linamar manufactures differential gear, shaft, and body components, as well as clutch modules for gear boxes. For the powertrains in vehicles Linamar supplies entire transmission systems, such as rear axle gear units for all-wheel drive vehicles. Ranging from single parts to complex assembly groups – Linamar is the top supplier for OEMs.

Our services

  • translation of technical documentation/specification sheets into English for well-known automotive manufacturers

Our method

The PDF files sent by the automotive manufacturer containing the specifications for Linamar as a supplier always serve as the foundation for our translation work. To present these complex requirements in a clearly laid-out format, and to be able to set up a terminology database, we have transferred all information into Excel.

These files have then been translated into English for Linamar's global operational processes.

We have continuously worked together with PSi for many years – from memos to entire specification sheets PSi always translates (generally from German into English) reliably and on time. We would especially like to highlight the high quality of the often very demanding, specific technical translations, as well as the special two-language format of the translations we require, because we find it extremely helpful when creating specification sheets.
I would like to thank the PSi team for their competence and delivery reliability, but also for the pleasant and non-bureaucratic collaboration.

Is there a DTP or OCR service?

DTP service – desktop publishing service

A translated document can be longer or sometimes shorter than the (German) original version. However, you will receive your translation back in the same format/layout as the original version. Some formats can be exported or imported with the help of translation tools, other translations need adjustment by our formatting team to fit the original layout and design.
We will always give our best to reduce the time and effort you have to put in.

Just contact us – we will be happy to talk about your next project with you!

OCR service – optical character recognition

We can implement optical character or text recognition from pictures or your PDF-files through the use of modern software. Thus, you will receive your translation as a processable text.

Terminology work in translation tools

The entity of all terms in a specific field of business or science e. g., automotive industry, medical engineering, laser technology, machine engineering, is called terminology.

This specific terminology can only be used efficiently in a field of business or a company if it is saved and consistently used.

To achieve such consistency, terminology management software such as: SDL Trados, memoQ, Across can be very helpful, to only mention a few. You can rely on us to always collaborate with the same translator for all of your projects, who will always use the same terminology from the database, but also the same style of communication once you have approved it. In the long run this can result in very attractive prices for translations due to the existing terminology database for your business.
