What is the technical communication?
Technical communication is the process of defining, creating and providing information for the safe and effective use of various products, mainly technical systems, software and services. This information is most frequently distributed in the form of text and graphics or other indirect means of communication.
In practice, this means that the consumer is supplied with each product (ranging from flat-pack furniture that the customer can assemble at home on their own to an automated production line) together with an instruction manual. These manuals describe how to correctly bring the product into operation, how to install it or prepare it for use and consequently also how to use it safely.
Translation services are the natural partner for technical documentation, since many products are distributed worldwide and target customers need information in their mother tongue on how to use them safely and effectively. At Lexika, we have wide-ranging experience in translating all kinds of technical documentation – instruction manuals and user guides for the engineering, power and transport industries, and for health and information technologies.
