Document Searching & Selective Translation Service


You can request a document (manual, technical papers, etc.,) to be obtained directly from a manufacturer or professional association. You can also send the pages you have already scanned for translation. Feel free to indicate if you are unsure which pages you need; translation will begin only after a search, followed by discussion and agreement on the pages you would be most interested in.

Further information can be found here.
