ASTA-USA’s Unique Approach to Chemicals Translation Services 

ASTA-USA’s chemicals translation services division is different for a variety of reasons.

Naturally, our professional translators are truly excellent linguists. The individuals that are hand-picked for your project will be either technically bilingual or they will be native in either the source or the target language for the translation in question. That means, typically, they will have been born in the country in which the language is spoken.

In that respect, having lived in a country where the language is indigenous, they will also appreciate the culture and traditions; how people ask for things and communicate at different levels; turn-of-phrase and idiom; dialect and inflection. Because of these particular qualities, inaccuracies or errors in the translation itself are virtually eliminated at the outset.

Along with our 700 full-time accredited translators, we can draw on the talents of a pool of almost 13,000 professional-level linguists. Apart from the languages they can translate from and to, we also note their fields of professional experience, so we will know that the translators we select for your project will be very familiar with, in this case, terminology and technical details that concern the chemicals sector.

Intellectual Anatomy of an ASTA-USA Chemicals Translator

To emphasize the point, if your required chemical industry translation is from Swiss German to Latin-American Spanish, the person that carries out the task will be (for example):

Native Swiss German


Fluent in written and spoken Latin-American Spanish, most usually educated to Bachelor’s degree level


Professionally experienced in the chemicals industry, preferably qualified in the sub-sector to which your content relates

How it Works

From the get-go, you will be assigned your own chemicals translation administrator and project manager. They will remain your single point of contact for the duration of the project. Because of the highly technical nature of the chemicals industry, it might be expedient for the lead translator themselves to have contact with a subject matter expert (SME) within your organization.

  1. Once you’ve approved our quote and we have the source content assembled, we will hand-pick the translator or translators required, based on their chemicals industry knowledge and, of course, the languages in which they are native or completely fluent.
  2. They will carry out the draft translation of your materials or content querying any specific points as and when required (this can be inevitable with highly technical content such as chemicals industry translations).
  3. The translated content and the original script will then be passed to an equally qualified translator for checking.
  4. It is then passed back to the first translator so any amendments that have been made can be re-checked.
  5. The final draft is then passed back to your personal project manager who ensures all the content has been translated including diagram annotations, pull quotes, captions, and so on.
  6. The finished translation is dispatched to you.
