The Critical Role of Translation in the Global Automotive Industry

The automotive industry stands out for its global footprint and export focus. As such, it relies heavily on the expertise of professional translators familiar with industry-specific terminology. Major car brands like Volkswagen Group, Toyota, General Motors, Hyundai Motor Group, Ford, Nissan, Honda, Fiat-Chrysler, Renault and the PSA Group, which collectively manufactured over 70 million vehicles in 2018, rely on precise translations of technical documents.

These documents encompass everything from user guides, service and workshop manuals, press releases, vehicle catalogues, dealership information leaflets, advertising and marketing materials, parts and components databases, specialised software programs, safety data sheets, to mechanical manuals, and more.

A History Rooted in the Automotive Sector

Established in 2000, LinguaVox has been a leading ISO 17100 certified translation agency with a significant focus on the automotive sector. Our head office is located in the Basque Country, an epicentre for over 300 automotive component companies.

The Importance of Quality in Automotive Translations

The automotive sector was one of the first industrial sectors to establish a set of metrics to assess the quality of translations. The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) developed the J2450 standard in 2001.

Immediately after its publication, LinguaVox began to apply this standard to translations for General Motors, Ford and Chrysler, among others. With the publication of ISO 17100, multinationals in the automotive industry began to demand ISO 17100 certification.

LinguaVox is proud to hold dual certification, aligning our quality management system with ISO 9001 standards. Furthermore, we were among the first international translation companies to acquire certification for our translations per the European standard EN-15038, now known as the international standard for translation service providers, ISO 17100. Our commitment to quality ensures that our legal, medical, patent, technical, and urgent translation services meet the high standards of our clients in the automotive industry.
