Different Types of Translation in the Textile Industry

Translations in the textile industry take about 5% of base activity of translation services. It should be recognized that placing brands of Russian producers in foreign market is insignificant compared to import of textile products to Russia. If translation in the first situation is a very rare occurrence, the second comprises a substantial amount of orders. Translation services are requested by both manufacturers and distributors of sewing and textile products.

Textile industry – one of the main directions of light industry, which ranks second after food industry, based on sales. Translation services often face translation of technologies definitions, used in the textile industry and also texts on new fabrics and materials, which are used in production of clothing.

All translations in the textile field can be divided into three categories: products, printed materials, which conducive to the advancement of products and equipment for textile industry. In translation of catalogues it’s necessary to pay special attention to text style since these documents serve as a commercial for a seller of textiles and clothing. It’s a popular orders topic for translation services. Clothes, accessories, footwear, children’s goods – is just a small part of the directions translated by translation services.

Work of translation services may also include translations with technical orientation, for example, service manuals for sewing equipment; and also with marketing orientation, for example, articles about fashion designers or fashion catalogues. Professional translators with profile education and in-depth knowledge are involved in both directions.

The whole textiles market can be conditionally divided into four groups of the main participants. First of all, it is large enterprises, which release a large amount of products of the same type characterized by accessible prices and design absence. The second group is foreign manufacturers, who produce products of poor quality, but presented by a big assortment. The third sector is wholesale trade companies, which order production abroad. Quality of such products differs noticeably in a good way. The forth group may include small manufacturing companies, mostly based in regions.

The textile industry is now growing quite rapidly compared to other sectors of the economy, as can be seen by number of requests for translations in this field. Textile production may also be grouped in four categories depending on raw materials: cotton, linen, silk, woolen, chemical fiber cloth. Russian translators often work with translations of different certifications and specifications. Textile industry is closely linked to chemical industry, so such translations are performed by specialists, which know terminology of this field very well.
