Information Technology translations

In the last 10 years IT technology has experienced great progress and linguistic contaminations.
When we speak of professional translations in the IT sphere, we must distinguish between three areas of vocabulary:

  • The official technical vocabulary of the IT sector;
  • The technical vocabulary linked to IT products (hardware and software, apps, etc.);
  • The vocabulary deriving from the world of the Web.

Babelex is a team of professional translators based in Milan that carries out IT translations. We are able to provide a top quality, fast translation service. We know the IT sector, we are passionate about technology and we constantly keep ourselves up-to-date on new products and trends.

Some of the aspects relating to IT translations are explained below:

  • The new linguistic phenomena in the IT sector;
  • The constant attention to the new terms coming from the Web;
  • Clients that need IT translations;
  • The various types of IT translations;
  • The contribution of translations of IT texts for increasing corporate business;
  • Our methodological approach.

The new linguistic phenomena in the IT sector

With respect to translations of texts in other professional sectors, IT translations certainly present particular aspects and characteristics that must be known in order to fully understand their developments.

The IT sector has generated a totally new linguistic phenomenon, i.e. the forced translation of individual words which, however, has not resulted in a symptom of linguistic vitality but results that are often decidedly comical and in any case not fitting with the original language. This is the case, for example, of the literal translation of the “mouse”: someone in the past tried to translate it as “topo, but naturally it didn’t work. On the contrary, over the years, the term “mouse”, not translated, has become familiar and has been totally accepted into the Italian language. This is only one of the many examples of what we like to call linguistic cohabitation, an interesting phenomenon for us – professional translators and interpreters – which we have to deal with every day in the area of translating IT texts and documents.

The constant attention to the new terms coming from the Web

The Web has now become a shared space of communication and socialisation, able to stimulate linguistic production even beyond the strictly IT sector. Over the years, Internet has constructed its own specific vocabulary production and in this sense it continues to develop constantly. The role of the Italian language, specifically in this type of translation, is that of making use of borrowed words, i.e. of terms which, so as not to create confusion, are not translated (we have used the example of the term “mouse”), since they are now part of that widely known, used and shared technical terminology, specific to the sector.

The work of Babelex, a team of professional translators and experts in IT translations, is to welcome these new linguistic areas, being careful to keep the original terms. We provide a translation service that is always mindful of the new trends and new terms that come into our language and which emerge from the world of the Web.

Our methodological approach

Today an interesting and completely new scenario is opening up, since IT companies (small, medium-sized and large businesses) have entered the emerging markets) Latin (America, India, China). Those who work in the IT sector understand perfectly the importance of turning to a team of professional translators, able to support the client in the promotion, sale and visibility of their own digital products.

The professional IT translators who work with Babelex follow a methodological approach that has been refined over the years and that guarantees a successful end result.
This approach to the job takes four fundamental actions into consideration:

  • Always reading the original text with attention in order to understand its style, with the aim of transferring it to the translated text, respecting the difference between the two languages;
  • Paying attention to the format of the original text, in order to maintain a stylistic coherence in the translated text;
  • Consulting, when necessary, glossaries and specific terminological references in the IT sector;
  • Always carrying out a final check to verify that the translated text corresponds perfectly to the original.
