Translating scientific publications

Translating scientific publications

Translating a manuscript intended for publication into English is a complex and demanding task due to the advanced terminology, content and style of writing. The process starts by first assigning the text to a skilled translator who is familiar with, and understands, the scientific terminology used in the text. A suitable translator is usually the one who has advanced education in a specific area and may well be experienced with publishing their own work. The translation will therefore feature accurate terminology and follow standards of a given field as well as those of the target language.
Translating scientific publications

Following translation, it is often advised that the translated text is proofread and edited by a scientific native speaker of English who understands both the content and the demands of journal editors.

Proofreading of any translated document is recommended when both the scientific merit and language will be evaluated at the review stage. Proofreading elevates the language to a more professional level to ensure the text flows in a natural and professional manner, as would be expected for an international journal. Since proofreaders become thoroughly familiar with the text, this process also ensures that any inconsistencies within the text or potential problems are detected.
