Our company recently completed the translation of post-evaluation studies, tender books and environmental permits for one of the leading maritime companies in the Netherlands. Our client required technical translations  ahead of an auction where they were looking to win new contracts.

We took on the project that included the technical translation of around 6000 words, from English to Romanian and French, along with DTP formatting of the final document and proofreading of all completed materials.

In order to meet our client’s deadline – 7 business days – itlocal assigned a team of translators with expertise in technical and environment studies and manuals. Additionally, a Quality Assurance specialist, a proofreader, a dedicated Project Manager and  our DTP department ensured the target files were flawless and on time.

Automotive Project Sample


  • Client’s Industry: Automotive

  • Type of Product: Operating manuals for airport towing tractors and complementary materials

  • Type of Project: Automotive translations with DTP services

  • Languages involved: English into Polish and Hungarian

  • Time Frame: 20 business days



One of our many automotive industry clients is a top producer of ground support equipment who contacted us for a large volume translation project – around 30,000 words – including manuals and marketing materials. 

We assembled  a team of automotive translations experts to manage the translation, review and quality assurance process. We recruited translators and editors with specific technical expertise and the necessary creative abilities to deliver a professionally localized target file, suitable for the client’s target countries.

Constant communication was essential for this project, as the client requested samples to be submitted periodically for 3rd party reviews. Constant updates were made in order to ensure the target file is consistent with the client’s expectations.

The client made sure to send us the files compatible with Trados and our translation memory tools, which allowed us to speed up the translation process.  

The project delivery was a success and the client appreciated our thoroughness and transparent communication style.
