Wrong Term

Miscellaneous Error



Punctuation Error


Having an international footprint that covers the world’s major countries and cities, global airlines are the true promoters of globalization. In addition to being a highly competitive industry with growing operational expenses, airlines must also provide quality multilingual content to meet the requirements of a diverse international customer base.

To facilitate the creation and deployment of multilingual content for the airlines, CSOFT has developed streamlined solutions to automate website translations, terminology management, and in-country reviews for improved language quality and consistency.

Customized solutions to suit your needs

CSOFT provides localization solutions for a variety of airline industry needs.


Aviation Manual Translation

Aviation is a highly specialized and complex field that requires detailed technical documentation for a variety of components and operations. Accurate translation is a must to ensure flight safety, regulatory compliance, and operational efficiency. Powered by our large network of aviation specialist linguists and cutting-edge globalization technology, CSOFT provides quality translation solutions to the world’s leading aviation manufacturers in 100+ languages.

Avionics Equipment Localization

Whether it’s the control, monitoring, communication, navigation system, weather, or anti-collision systems, we can help you translate the user guides, software systems, operational procedures, and training materials into your required languages for optimal operation of advanced equipment for both safety and international regulatory compliance.

Aircraft Manufacturing

The development of emerging markets presents aircraft manufacturers with an important growth driver in the new millennium as countries such as China, India, and Brazil demand more planes to meet the travel needs of a rapidly growing middle class. As such, aircraft manufacturers must localize aircraft safety instructions, operational manuals, and training materials to meet the requirements of a multinational staff and local regulations. CSOFT has the process, linguistic resources, and aviation subject matter expertise to help aircraft manufacturers cross language barriers with ease.

Airplane Engines

The aircraft engine is one of the most complex pieces of aviation equipment that requires a substantial amount of localized user documentation and training materials for global deployment. Whether it’s your technical user manuals, software systems, legal contracts, or marketing literature and training documents, you can trust CSOFT to provide highly accurate translations in 100+ languages and 24×7 support.


The automotive industry is one the world’s most rapidly expanding industries with the number of cars worldwide already surpassing 1 billion. Whether you’re trying to reach drivers in emerging markets or compete more efficiently when sourcing components from international suppliers, effective communication across multiple languages can help manufacturers confidently capture market share. Despite tremendous opportunities, the automotive industry is facing increasing competitive pressure globally, placing heightened importance on smart localization.

Best-in-class solutions for automotive terminology management

Ensuring terminology accuracy and consistency across product literature is perhaps the most important step in quality automotive localization. The automotive industry is a multi-disciplined business with a vast vocabulary of highly technical verbiage covering many fields. Even if an author or translator has received specialized training in the automotive field, it still takes time to research terminology during the content development and translation process.

When many translators have to work on the same project due to a very tight deadline, achieving terminology consistency becomes challenging. We have developed the industry’s leading terminology solutions that allow linguists to look up terms and approved translations in real time, thereby helping them focus on doing what they do best: technical writing and translating.

Quality Translation Requires Automotive Expertise

Don’t take chances with amateurs for your automotive translation. Poorly translated operation manuals, service manuals, maintenance information, and advertising can cause major damage to your international brand.
