Document and business translation specialists in Houston

Finding the right person to translate your text can be difficult, with hopes that the end result is actually the correct translation and not a botched job. Accuracy is key in these situations and we work hard to localize a myriad of various documents. Houston is home to a lot of specialized engineering firms, including space travel and major oil firms. Straight translation in these situations just won’t cut it, and instead requires the educated and finer touch from someone who is not just able to translate a language, but is also well versed in engineering. In these situations, we transform the necessary words so that they don’t cause confusion elsewhere.

The same can be said for scientific translation, which needs to be handled with the precision of a surgeon. Houston contains many biomedical engineering and research firms, with workers that come from everywhere to pool in their resources. This adds complications to research, as workers must translate their scientific knowledge, which isn’t as simple as many think. Instead, our translators trained in science can take the context of the text and ensure that the resulting translation contains the correct scientific nomenclature.

‘Houston, we have a problem’. We have a large number of people entering the city who need their translation needs met. No joke, Houston is a popular destination for tourists who want to see the city’s historic space center, hover around some of the historical attractions or just soak in the classic Americana feel. Houston is as much a Southern state as one can get, and brings with it some of the most stereotypical American features. 

Houston also acts as a getaway destination for those seeking relaxation and recreation, with a host of options from golf courses to tennis, with those from abroad also joining in on the fun. Restaurants are world-renowned and know how to pile a plate up with food that will make your mouth water and your arteries terrified. Cajun influence, Mexican vibes, and seafood provide diversity to the culinary treats of the city in the same way it influences its culture.


Industry in Houston

Oil and gas

The oil industry dominates Texas, especially Houston. Petrochemicals is big business in the city, with pipelines connecting a plethora of industrial plants across the coast. Tens of thousands of employees work in Houston’s oil sector, and has two of the largest refineries in the entire USA, employing all manner of people. Expansion in this sector requires talents from not only US citizens, but specialists from abroad who bring with them essential knowledge. But how does this translate into English? It’s difficult, as mentioned, you can’t just blankly translate something and hope the engineering aspect remains the same. Instead, it is essential to pick a certified translator with engineering knowledge, all of which we can supply in Houston. 


With so much technical development in the city, its no surprise that Houston is home to many renowned educational institutions. Those studying in these institutions may study in English, but it can be common for these individuals to need assistance in proofreading their work, translating resumes and helping them with translating their research for English speakers. This also goes for the institutions themselves, who need localized and fully translated information, literature and marketing to distribute abroad and online. 

Medical Research

Houston is now a world-leading power in biomedical research, allowing the city to have amazing healthcare for both its locals and those flown in for specific procedures. These hospitals and research centers rank among the best in the country, with over 65,000 health care professionals working within Houston’s healthcare field. Translation services are often required by these firms as they bring in both workers and patients from abroad, many not speaking English all too well. Only the most accurate translation services, such as ours, can be of use in these situations. Everything must be translated perfectly, otherwise, conflict within poorly translated documents could lead to serious errors.

Languages spoken in Houston

Being so close to the border, it’s no surprise that there is a large Latin American population within the city and a high amount of Spanish speaking people. In fact, Texas has over 500,000 Mexican immigrants, and in general, has a large population of non-native English speakers. On top of this, there are many from places such as Germany and Canada who have immigrated to the city to work within its bustling engineering and medical sectors. 

It’s not an easy job accomodating for so many different languages, make sure to contact OnTheDotTranslations today for quotes and a conversation on how you or your business can ease through the translation process.

The terminology used in the translation industry can be a source of confusion for many people. Many terms are often wrongly used interchangeably. Localization and translation are two of such terms.

Localization refers to the process of taking a product or service and making it culturally and linguistically appropriate to the target locale (language, region or country) where it will be marketed. As such, localization is a much deeper process of which translation is part of. The process usually involves target graphics, content modification to the target market, local requirement conversions, local format conversion and adherence to local laws and regulations.

This makes it a time consuming and complex process that is best handled by professionals at On the Dot Translations. To tackle localizations projects we have invested in certain aspects including expert translators, localization experts, project managers and software developers. Our localization service process involves:
