Scientific transation is a vast field and is often closely connected with specialised and technical translation.

This is why thorough academic knowledge is a requirement for the translator when it comes to academic translation.

Such a translator can specialise in fields such as medicine, biology, pharmacy, chemistry, physics, and others. Therefore, in order to provide scientific translation services, one must acquire knowledge in the aforementioned fields, as well as many more.

    How does scientific translation work?

    In most cases the aim of scientific papers is to share discoveries or research with the rest of the academic community, and society in general. This is when academic translation becomes an absolute necessity. It is also common that scientists use sources in different languages while conducting their research. It should be noted that it is not easy to translate scientific papers and that is why adequate knowledge and experience are required.

    At Linguaforum we offer the best prices for scientific translation to and from Polish and English; this is the language pair that is most often commissioned.

    the 4 pillars of quality when it comes to academic translation

    Extensive vocabulary

    The more complex a text, the more nuance is required when approaching it. The same word may have differing meanings in two different fields. That is why we advise scientific translators to work with glossaries.


    Analysis of neologisms and abbreviations

    Texts that are subjects of scientific translation often include many borrowed words, which is why adequate equivalents must be found while translating into the target language. If there is no such equivalent, the translator might even be faced with creating neologisms.

    Cohesion and consistency

    It is crucial to pay attention to grammar and orthography, as well as numbers and units of measurement. It is no less important for the text to be cohesive.


    Keeping the audience in mind

    The translator should keep in mind the target audience of the text they are translating, as well as what is going to be the purpose of the translation. A different approach is needed when translating for scientists and when translating for a wider audience.

    At Linguaforum we guarantee you a personal approach to every text, as well as full confidentiality when it comes to our scientific translation services. Rest assured that any sensitive data is safe with us!
