Technical and engineering

We’re time-served experts in supporting technical and engineering companies, providing a range of translation and interpreting solutions.

Sharing our technical and engineering expertise

Across the NRL Group we’ve provided technical and engineering services to our clients for more than 40 years, so we understand first-hand how organisations operate and the compliance surrounding heavily regulated industries.  

This means that when it comes to providing language solutions, we talk the trade and have a network of qualified translators and interpreters who have experience working within the industry. From complex engineering processes to technical specifications, we offer language services delivered by linguists who are specialists in their respective fields.  


Translation in more than 135 languages

We’re able to work with a wide range of languages to support our technical and engineering clients, including local dialects where needed. 

Typical translation support we provide includes: 

  • Data sheets 
  • Process flows 
  • Technical documentation 
  • Engineering specifications 
  • Health and Safety manuals 
  • Product specifications 
  • CAD drawings 
  • Regulatory documents 
  • Patents 
  • Operating manuals 
  • Quality assurance documentation 
  • Technical reports 
  • Codes of conduct 

Facilitating conversations with interpreting

Technical and engineering companies also find our interpreting service a great resource to help facilitate important business decisions, including contract negotiations.

Where not all meeting participants speak English as their native language, we’re able to provide interpreters to help navigate the conversation. They’ll aid with direct translation between participants, which can also be provided remotely through phone and video calls. Services are delivered confidentially and impartially – so you can be confident that the conversation taking place is free from an interpreter’s personal opinion or conversation direction.


Support across the engineering sector 

Whichever industry sector you operate within, we’re on hand to help with translation and interpreting support. We’ll work with you to understand the requirements of your language project, together with any industry legislation we need to be aware of. Then one of our team of talented linguists will get to work, carefully taking time to accurately translate your documentation or supporting you with interpreting to make your meeting as effective as possible. 

Industry sectors we support include: 

  • Advanced Facilities – including pharmaceutical, life science, high purity and cleanrooms 
  • Built Environment – including construction and technical contracting 
  • Conventional Power – compliantly supporting heavy industry power generation 
  • Defence – adhering to security clearance and privacy protocols 
  • Infrastructure – including rail, highways and waterways 
  • Nuclear – from nuclear new build to decommissioning 
  • Oil, Gas and Petrochemical – supporting vendors, EPCs, PMCs and owner/operators 
  • Renewables – supporting the race to net zero 
  • Transmission and Distribution – working across the power network 

Due diligence matters to us

It’s important to us that we’re able to demonstrate our approach to quality and compliance for our clients. That’s why we hold ISO 9001: 2008 for our quality management systems and we’re long-standing members of the Institute of Translation and Interpreting (ITI) to ensure we’re working to industry best practice. 

Our team are more than happy to provide detailed explanations for any questions you may have when looking to bring NRL onboard as a supplier to your business.
