TRANSLATION AND TECHNICAL DOCUMENTATION SERVICES

REG International offers a variety of services dealing with translation and preparation of technical documentation for every need and occasion. We can put together a wide variety of technical documentation and perform all the required translations as well.

Technical documentation is a must for any type of equipment and has many applications (see a list of types of technical documentation below). Packages of technical documentation are supplied with the equipment for use by the buyer; they are also vital for obtaining GOST R Certificates of Conformity, Rostechnadzor (formerly Gosgortechnadzor) and Gosenergonadzor Permits, Expert Sanitary-Epidemiological Approvals, and for registering equipment with the aforementioned Russian federal agencies.

We can also perform any required translations (with conversions to metric units or without), including instructions, manuals, brochures, catalogues, drawings, P&I diagrams, calculations, specifications, databooks and many other types of documents. We can even translate graphics and preserve the same layout as the original document.

Our engineering experience assures that the translations and the documentation packages we prepare will be complete, correct, and relevant to the equipment or goods you are shipping.

In addition to the hard copies, we can also provide you with a modifiable electronic copy of the documentation, which is useful if you ever want to make changes to it in the future. We can work with and produce documents/files in a variety of formats, including:

    • all Microsoft Office formats (.doc, .xls, .rtf, .ppt, etc.);
    • Adobe Acrobat (.pdf);
    • Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and other graphic formats (.jpg/.jpeg, .gif, .psd., .tif, .ai, etc.);
    • AutoCAD (.dwg, etc.);
    • and many others.

Our complete translation/technical documentation services include:

(1) Translation and preparation of general technical documentation, such as installation and maintenance manuals for different kinds of equipment, or any other technical documentation.

(2) Translation and preparation of format-specific technical documentation for equipment under the jurisdiction of Rostechnadzor (formerly Gosgortechnadzor) or Gosenergonadzor of the Russian Federation, such as:

    • pressure vessels
    • boilers and steam generators
    • heat exchangers
    • load lifting equipment
    • high pressure pipelines
    • burners of various kinds
    • safety and control valves
    • control systems
    • mechanical equipment
    • electrical machinery
    • explosion-proof electrical equipment
    • and other potentially hazardous equipment

This documentation includes technical passports, welding qualifications and procedures, test reports and procedures, certificates, and ASME Code calculations, all prepared in accordance with the Government Standards of the Russian Federation (GOST R) and applicable to inspection and monitoring bodies, such as Rostechnadzor (formerly Gosgortechnadzor) and Gosenergonadzor. This documentation will allow you or your client to register equipment installed on the territory of the Russian Federation.

(3) Preparation and issuing of technical passports, including generic technical passports, as well as format-specific passports for pressure vessels, load-lifting equipment, explosion-proof electrical equipment, etc. These passports serve as sources of information for use and maintenance of the equipment and are also a requisite of registration under Rostechnadzor (formerly Gosgortechnadzor) or Gosenergonadzor.

(4) Translation and preparation of complete packages of technical documentation for your equipment and goods. We do fast, high quality, professional translations of technical documentation, including drawings, P&I diagrams, and calculations. Our engineering experience also assures that the translation and the documentation package will be complete, correct, and relevant to the equipment or goods you are shipping.
