Manuals and Instructions Translation

How do you increase customer satisfaction and encourage repeat purchases? – Start by making sure your product user manual and instructions are accurately translated into your consumer’s native language.

We translate all user guides and manual formats.

What is a Manuals and Instructions Translation?

Opening new and international markets makes your customer base become increasingly international. By law, manuals or operating instructions for consumer goods must be translated into the language of the target country.

As a standard, and as the absolute minimum, the manuals need to be translated into English. Manuals available in several languages can therefore enhance your corporate image.

Well-written and correctly translated operating instructions are essential for users of technical products.

Technical documentation translation we can assist you with:

  • User manuals
  • Operating instructions
  • Company manual
  • Safety manual
  • Medical devices manuals
  • Manufacturing manuals
  • assembly instructions manuals
  • Technical documentation
  • Process descriptions
  • Samples

Contact us for further information on the translation of manuals.

Why do you need to translate your manuals?

Translating user manuals is part of the certification process that manufacturers go through when looking to gain access to global markets. That’s because authorities who release these certifications and approve the selling of a product require companies to provide clear information about it.

Besides achieving compliance, translating user manuals is a way for manufacturers to show clients how much they care about the user experience. When customers have straightforward instructions to follow, they’re more likely to use the product correctly and purchase again.

Properly translated manuals are a sign of a professionally managed company.

Manuals and Instructions Translation
Frequently Asked Questions


Errors in the texts of manuals and operating instructions not only annoy the user but also present a major safety hazard. To minimize risks of damage to property and personal injury, legislation obliges manufacturers (and also dealers) to arrange for the preparation of easily understandable operating information for the user.

Wherever your markets are in the world. Both you and your customers will be completely satisfied by the technical translations of your manuals and operating instructions made by our professional translators.
To have a good overview and complete control of the costs, EHLION Project Managers will prepare a bespoke quote for your requirements. Pricing usually depends on the language combination, the word count, or amount of pages in the document. Repeat customers benefit from the translation memory system and therefore don’t pay for repeated words on the same or different documents.

To set the order in motion, simply contact us and give us the most important key data for your project.
