It’s no surprise that demand for computing and IT translation went through the roof during the pandemic as businesses digitised to unprecedented levels.
Days of the Year sum the situation up in their description of Computer Learning Month, which is celebrated in October every year –
“Computers now occupy almost every part of our lives, from the smartphones we spend our days communicating on, to the laptops and desktops that are the foundation of every business.
…we use them for everything, and people expect their businesses and their customers to be keeping up with the technological bleeding edge.”
What is Computing and IT Translation?
Never mind bleeding edges. Computing and IT translation can cause bleeding hearts if you’re faced with the task of translating techie text in to another language for –
- IT manuals
- Marketing materials
- Technical documents
Throw regional dialects and localisation in to the mix and the term ‘tech overwhelm’ takes on a whole new meaning.
