We understand the concepts behind the words – in English, German, and many other languages.
Disc brake or brake disc? Every field of engineering has its own specific phrases and technical terms. The more complex the product, the more important it is to describe it precisely – in any language. For this, up-to-date technical glossaries are indispensable.
Developing and maintaining multilingual glossaries requires detailed technical knowledge, familiarity with the terminology used in specific trades and industries, and a highly analytical and systematic approach.
At Ritschel Translations, we created our first English-German glossary of technical terms relating to commercial vehicles more than 20 years ago. Since then, our glossaries have grown in size and coverage. We now have the terminology we need for translation projects always at our fingertips.

- The same terms are always used to mean the same thing
- Everyone in the company shares a common vocabulary
- Creating and maintaining technical documentation in more than one language is efficient and economical
