Technical writing

The right choice of words to enhance your image

The content of the documents and their writing are tailored to the target audience, be they engineers, machine operators or the general public.

We ensure the overall consistency of your documents in their hierarchy and formatting, tailoring the complexity and information flow to the requirements of your audience.

Relevant use of illustrations limits the needs for translations and improves comprehensibility.

In the text drafting process, we make sure to use simple and concise language to aid assimilation of the explanations.

Our approach is as follows:

    1. Information gathered by our engineers/writers directly from your premises.
    2. Analysis and set-up of document structure.
    3. Drafting of texts, procedures and description.
    4. 2D and 3D illustration based on your files.
    5. DTP with the style sheets programmed in line with your graphic charter, page layout of the texts and illustrations.

    If necessary:

    1. Translation and language management with a single point of contact.
    2. Comprehensive document management for better structural and technical consistency.

Over many years, RédaTech SA has cultivated an expanding network of translators competent in several fields and covering all languages.

From machine tools to the medical sector as well watchmaking or aeronautics, we can meet your requirements in any industrial sector.

Our translators work into their native language and in their own field of competence, where they have expert command of the terminology.

Our translation department can call on human expertise, as well as innovative and reliable processing technology, to provide a high-performance translation solution tailored to your requirements, not only for the texts that we draft, but also for your own documents (technical, sales, legal), in all file formats.

Publication & Distribution

High quality preparation and assembly…

… because, as the saying goes, time is money!

A genuinely revolutionary tool in technical communication, our software platform ADN helps prepare and distribute the technical documents supplied with your equipment. In this way you save precious time and provide professional follow-up for your customers.

Distribution:

We offer three vectors, namely:

  • Printed documentation supplied in a binder.
  • CDs, DVDs or USB drives.
  • Web platform where all the documents associated with a piece of equipment remain accessible at any time, in just a few clicks.

Rapid information searches:

Access to information is improved thanks to high-performance indexing and search tools.

Optimised information display and searching on all types of media – computer, tablet, smartphone.

Document management

Your document project is in good hands. We organise your technical documentation, and our loyal customers’ documentation, to ensure its long-term performance and provide updates in all relevant versions and languages.

  • In several cases, we manage hundreds of documents.
  • Version management and handling of updates.
  • Ensuring consistency of documents aimed at the user through customised organisation (and structure).
  • Incorporation into a technical dossier and distribution for better legibility.
  • Traceability and comprehensive tracking of all data over time by a backup system with permanent access.

Tools & Media

For DTP, we use the software Adobe FrameMaker, InDesign and Broadvision QuickSilver on a daily basis.

For CAD we employ the tools AutoDesk Inventor and SolidWorks Composer.

We call on high-performance CAT tools (Transit and Trados) to build translation memories in all the language pairs pertinent to you so as to capitalise on previous translations and achieve substantial long-term savings.

We build on your terminology glossaries or create them with you as the job portfolio grows.

Your texts can then be processed with all the DTP software, and formatted the same way in every language.

Your documents and relevant information can be distributed on any handy media.
