translation services for the energy and environment sectorss

Energy and environment translation servicesDocument and technical translation services

The environment, energy and natural resources are sources of major international debates. Every day, we translate documents in these fields for our clients. At Birdwell we have 30 years experience in handling requests for translation into multiple languages from energy companies in the nuclear industry covering technical areas (including mechanics, boilermaking, piping, electronics, electrical engineering and more) and from clients in the renewable energy industry, (including solar, hydraulic, wind and geothermal energy). We’re also very familiar with studies, rules and regulations from governmental institutions and international organizations that focus on environmental protection.


At Birdwell we understand the importance of technical and industry-specific terminology.

Technical documents must be accurate.

For this reason, our clients are served by professional translators who work exclusively into their mother tongue and by subject matter experts (SME’s)  who have in-depth knowledge of the relevant field.

We are aware of what’s at stake for people working in the energy and environmental industries and we understand the need for strict non-disclosure policies for all team members working on the translation projects.
