How we help clients overcome challenges using customised language solutions

Our Solutions

Electric Vehicles (EV) Charging Solutions Project

Hugo Pereira - Head Global Marketing & Growth

EV-Box is the international market leader in providing electric vehicle charging stations and related cloud services and it has the largest installed with over 50.000 charging points worldwide.
Our office delivered professional translation services for EV-Box of around 100,000 words using English, German, Dutch and other European languages in the ‘Electric mobility industry.
As part of their expansion strategy in Europe and North America, we had to provide translation and editing services for Installation and User Manuals for different charging station models & software services.
As part of their table of contents, there were different elements:
- Safety regulations
- Product description
- Installation procedures
- Technical specifications
- Declaration of Conformity
One of the challenges was to grasp the terminology of an industry that is developing rapidly in our times.
For example, our client is using technology such as like Smart Charging, Load Balancing and Peak Shaving features.
Their integrated solution for communication between charge points and their central system is OCPP (Open Charge Point Protocol).
These technical manuals come with heavy graphics and a complex design layout, so we had to use our DTP team to ensure that the translated text fits the original layout and graphic design.
Every detail is essential in the technical industry, so we had to use a translation technology platform that detects non-conformities in the translation process by comparing source and target segments.
We had to run quality assurance that would keep the consistency of the content, by having the same translation for the same words & expressions and to avoid inconsistencies such as tags & formatting.
"With the help of YTranslations we were able to review all our technical documentation, installation manuals and user guidelines to help our users and partners to better utilise and install our EV charging stations.
Nowadays we can ship and support partners already in English, Dutch, French, Swedish, Norwegian, Portuguese, Spanish, Italian and German, and while no translation work is absolutely perfect, the qualitative result from YTranslations was extremely satisfactory."
