The global importance of academic translation

All academic disciplines are constantly changing, with research and new ideas being developed on a daily basis. It is important that any contribution to the body of academic knowledge already available in any discipline is shared with academic peers around the world and for this to be done effectively, quality translation of academic documents is key. Linguation has the necessary experience of providing successful academic translations in a vast range of academic fields. We are dedicated to providing the top-quality translations of your theses, dissertations, articles for publication, textbooks, abstracts and conference materials, including presentations and hand-outs. Linguation offers numerous language combinations for the translation of academic documents, including into and from minority languages.


An abstract is a short summary of research questions and results of the work, is at the very beginning of a scientific work and is usually only about half a page long. Some papers provide this in several languages at the same time, so that scientists from all over the world can quickly identify whether the work is relevant to them. When translating, it is important to ensure that the text is as understandable as possible without violating scientific standards.

Extended Abstract

An extended abstract represents a scientific work somewhat more precisely than a normal abstract and usually comprises 1 - 2 pages. Research questions, methods and results can be explained here in somewhat more detail. This type of abstract is often required for international conferences and symposia and therefore often has to be translated into different languages.


If you study at a foreign university, you often write your thesis there in the national language - an additional challenge, because academic language requires precise formulations and a high level of language skills. That is why it is extremely important to have your work professionally proofread by a native speaker in order to correct structural, grammatical and semantic errors.


The translation of all kinds of theses is mostly relevant after passing. Excellent work with top grades in particular is then often requested in translation so that it can be made accessible to the international scientific audience (SSCI, SCI, AHCI, SCIE). The translation of master's theses and especially doctoral theses requires a high level of scientific and linguistic knowledge on the part of the translator and should therefore only be left to highly qualified people. Translation errors in scientific work can have serious consequences for further research in the respective field.
