Translation of geology related texts from English, German, French

Geology (from Ancient Greek words ‘earth’ and ‘study’) is a science concerned with the composition, structure and history of the development of the solid Earth and the rocks of which it is composed. It is no secret that extraction of mineral resources is one of the largest sectors of the Russian economy, and prospecting and exploration of new deposits is a strategic task for the state. Furthermore, engineering and geological surveys play an equally important role in construction. Companies’ attempts to save on geological surveys during the construction process often lead to emergency situations, the liquidation of which increases the cost and time of construction.

Under the current conditions, extraction and geological exploration of subsurface resources require significant investment that can often be made only by large international corporations. As a result, the process of prospecting and exploring deposits involves active interaction between Russian and foreign specialists, in which a high quality translation of geology related texts plays an important part.

The main difficulty in translating geological texts lies in the abundance of sector-specific terminology. Translation of geology related texts often also requires further desktop publishing of the documents that involve complex formatting (maps, layouts and drawings).

We offer:
- translation of geological survey and mineral deposit exploration data (geological maps of the territory);
- translation of descriptions of mineral deposits, geological materials;
- translation of engineering and geophysical surveys in construction;
- translation of field development maps;
- translation of layouts and drawings.
