Requirements & Challenges

MLC has been a language partner of McConnel for the past few years, primarily helping them export their comprehensive range of Power Arms to new markets.  McConnel required translation services to make their operating manuals available in multiple languages for their international customers. In addition to translations, high-level proofreading was provided as part of our quality assurance process.

The main challenge was to provide accurate translations, which contained technical terminology specific to the agriculture and machinery industry. The translations had to be precise and consistent across different languages, including French, Spanish, Russian, Dutch, Slovenian, and Lithuanian. This has been an ongoing endeavour, with a substantial volume of content and a total of 79,000 words translated so far.
