Technical manual translation services
You’ve invested in creating a complex and valuable product, and your customers expect and need clear, accurate technical documentation. Now, it’s time to make one more step and share your product with a global audience – the world is waiting.
Before you start selling products or services to overseas local markets, you need to make sure it speaks the language of your new customers. It’s very easy to fail at this step, because handling multilingual content and properly adapting (localizing) and translating content requires experience, knowledge and skills.

Documentation complexity is an opportunity
If your documentation is complex for any reason; if you operate in highly regulated markets; if you are trying to deliver in multiple markets at the same time. It is the complexity of these scenarios that really provides you with the opportunity to make significant savings in time and money and to compete more successfully for customers. And it is for these complex scenarios that 3di exists.
We will help you cut through that complexity, throughout your content or product life-cycle, and make it easier, cheaper and quicker to deliver high-quality multi-lingual versions, on-demand.
A bespoke translation service of manuals and documentation, tailored to your needs
3di uses a combination of localization engineers, expert translators, computer-assisted translation (CAT), and machine translation (MT) tools, to ensure your technical manuals are translated and localized quickly, accurately and efficiently. We look at your needs and requirements and create a bespoke combination of tools, processes, and scripts, to ensure the best results.
We have used this approach to successfully deliver translated and localized technical documentation for many companies, in a variety of industries. If you would like to know more, read our case studies below.
