Keep The Job Site Efficient

The construction industry is full of decisions with very high stakes. With profits on the line and deadlines approaching, you can’t allow a mistranslation or lack of translation set you back. It doesn’t take much for a little miscommunication to lead to disastrous outcomes, as many other construction companies could tell you. You don’t want to be the one that couldn’t get the job done because you neglected to ensure communication was smooth and effective.

By relying on a less than reputable translation method, drastic problems may come up. It can be as simple as a single word or phrase, but if documents aren’t filled out accurately or if employees don’t know what they should be doing, you’ll find the success of your construction project very dramatically go down.

Protect the time and money you’re putting into the work of your construction company by partnering with GlobalSpeak Translations. We are the smart choice for keeping your investment secure, as our team is completely dedicated to providing accurate translations. Let GlobalSpeak Translations handle all the construction translations you need, from basic blueprints to instructions pertaining to relevant codes in the area, and keep your construction site operations efficient with error-free translations.

Keep Your Job Site Safe

Even more important than keeping things moving along smoothly is ensuring that nobody suffers any injuries in the process. A lack of translated material can make a construction job site just as hazardous as if any other important safety precautions were neglected. There may not be overt hazards blocking pathways, but not having important information in every team member’s hands could just as easily cause deadly accidents. While you may be tempted to take the easy or cheap way towards project completion, the lives of your staff are more important. You don’t want everyone to remember your construction site as one where they didn’t care enough about their workers to keep safety the top priority. Keep everyone safe and avoid a public relations disaster by having safety information accurately translated into the languages that everyone working on the construction site understands.

When workers can read the instructions for a new piece of equipment and quickly understand a construction site’s warning sign, you can more easily trust everyone to safe safe. Ensuring safety is worth the cost for quality in your translation services. With injuries occurring so often on construction sites and even small errors in translation contributing to safety concerns, your best interests lie with GlobalSpeak Translations. Our professional construction industry translators can guarantee accurate translations that will get everyone on the same page so injuries are avoided and your business’ credibility is maintained. Turn to GlobalSpeak Translations for quality translations of safety guidelines and other important construction site safety materials.

Comply With Local Regulations

Construction projects are subject to various regulations for safety, quality, and permission, but what is required will often vary depending on location. In the foreign countries where many of our clients work on construction projects for oil and gas, the local zoning codes and safety regulations are very different. No matter how large or small your construction project is, you will need to submit some documentation, and translation may often be required to get it right.

If you are in a foreign country, they will expect documents to be in the country’s official language, so handing in your permit in English is not going to cut it. Even within the United States though, construction translation services may be needed just to comply with local regulations. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration of the U.S. Department of Labor requires safety training for employees to be conducted in a language all workers can understand. You might also have trouble with a language barrier keeping you from understanding what the regional regulations are in the first place, and a roadblock like this can really set your progress back.

Accurate translation is important in any area of the world for making sure that noncompliance with regulations doesn’t cause your construction company any problems. The project managers at GlobalSpeak Translations don’t allow incorrect translations to slip past them. We will make sure that you get a completely accurate translation of your construction documents that will put you within the requirements of the local government.

Keep Up With Technological Developments

New processes are always coming out for the construction industry. As you grow and adapt to the technological developments that impact your construction project, many of your employees may end up lagging behind. New information can be difficult to process for anybody, but if that information is coming to you in a language you don’t know or only barely understand, keeping up could be just about impossible.

With construction translation services, everyone can be kept up to date on all the new technology coming onto the scene for construction sites. If you want to avoid a language barrier keeping you from moving technologically with the times, rely on GlobalSpeak Translations. Over our years of experience, we’ve had to progress with the technology of our translation industry.
