Environmental Technology

With sustainable technologies into a future worth living

Environmental technology

The term environmental technology covers all technologies for keeping water, air and soil clean. The industry is gaining enormous importance against the backdrop of global climate change. “Smart” technologies and concepts are and remain an important building block for a good life and prosperity. It is clear to all those involved that a national and international “show of strength” for climate and environmental protection is necessary here. And you as a GreenTech company are right in the middle of it with your developments and technologies!

The topics to be addressed are broad and diverse:

  • Sustainable manufacturing and production processes
  • Waste prevention and disposal
  • Use of renewable energies
  • Renewable or recycled raw materials
  • Achieving the emission and climate targets

Many physical principles and chemical and engineering skills come together in this field. The knowledge of professionals from the fields of civil engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, manufacturing technology, chemistry and biology combines with the energy and waste management industry. The necessary expertise for perfect cross-border communication is correspondingly high and demanding.

Wind energy: taking customers by storm with professional translations

The "raw material" wind is one of the most profitable renewable energies. In 2022, approximately 30,000 wind turbines supplied more than 21.7% of the electricity generated in Germany. In Europe, Germany is the leader in the operation of onshore and offshore wind farms, surpassed only by China and the USA. Decisive for a good electricity yield are the location of the turbine, the size of the rotor blades and the wind speed. 

Solar energy: Our specialist translations make your business shine

The sun has always played a central role in energy production. Sunlight was already used as an energy source in ancient Egypt and Rome. The enormous potential of solar energy was recognised early on, but it was not until the 1950s that Germany achieved a breakthrough in the development of solar systems. A distinction is made between photovoltaic and solar thermal systems: While photovoltaic systems convert solar energy into electricity, solar thermal systems generate heat for hot water and heating. As of 2022, there are more than 2.2 million photovoltaic systems in Germany, supplying around 11% of the electricity generated in Germany. 

Water energy: Our translation agency is making waves in the water energy sector

Hydropower in Germany is mainly generated in run-of-river plants, which supply about 5% of the electricity from renewable sources. Flowing water is directed through a water turbine that converts the energy of the water into mechanical rotary motion. A generator then produces electrical energy from this. In addition, there are pumped storage power plants that require the greatest possible height of fall in order to generate energy from water. 

Geothermal energy: (Heart)warming texts in all world languages

Geothermal energy is heat that is stored below the earth's surface. This heat can be used for geothermal heat pump heating systems, for example. Geothermal energy can even be used to generate electricity, which requires so-called combined heat and power (CHP) plants. These simultaneously generate electricity and give off heat to the district heating network. 

Bioenergy: We don't let rubbish go to waste

Energy from biomass is produced in biofuel plants from various organic substances and waste. Biomass means that biowaste is processed and converted into various energy sources: District heating, gas, electricity, biofuel or hydrogen. This makes bioenergy very versatile and it can be used in various industries. 

Effective foreign language communication, simple and safe

For your foreign language communication, we have a sustainable approach and regenerative resources: Professionals in environmental technology combined with linguistic and mother tongue expertise. All this is brought into line with certified and automated processes.

We adapt our processes and services entirely to your needs and offer to set up translation memories and terminology databases for your specialist field. In doing so, we use existing sources and standards for defined technical terms and standards to be considered.

At the same time, we make suggestions for efficient and target group-oriented language for your marketing in all media. 

What we translate:

Overview of text types
Software, software localisation and applications
PC programs
User manuals
Technical documentation
IT documents/systems such as ERP and SRM
Specialist articles
Analyses and reports
Training, e-learning
Congress documents
Marketing materials, brochures

Who we work for

We translate for environmental technology companies in the fields of wind turbines, PV systems, filter technologies, plant engineering, engineering offices for environmental protection, supply and disposal, biogas plants and electrotechnical systems and networks.

Certified translations with top-class quality
In order to be able to serve your industry and to precisely understand the extensive field of environmental technology, we work exclusively with highly qualified specialist translators. These are evaluated by COMLOGOS and must meet certain criteria. Because technical know-how is essential in addition to great accuracy.

Our translators also regularly attend training courses in order to keep abreast of the latest developments. Our translators are native speakers, who work with translation memory systems with client and language-specific translation memories and terminology databases.

With our quality standard we create trust and satisfaction with our customers. IT and software companies rely on COMLOGOS.

We are a certified company (ISO 17100, ISO 18587 and ISO 9001) and therefore required to provide proof of the skills and qualifications of our staff and the processes for translation and revision. In addition, our internal and external employees sign a confidentiality agreement. Thus, your personal data will remain confidential with us.

Machine translations
Not every translation has to be a certified translation. Often, a correct translation of the content, made with the support of a neural machine translation, is sufficient for communication. This has the advantages of faster translation and lower costs.

Here, too, it is important to include suitable terminology in the machine translation process and to have it fully checked by a specialist translator (called a full post-editor). We use these technologies and are certified to produce machine translations with full post-editing (ISO 18587).
