Pico Technology is Going Global

Pico Technology manufactures an award-winning range of easy-to-use oscilloscope and data acquisition products for the test, measurement and automotive markets. The hardware is accompanied by software, printed manuals, electronic help, a website and other internet-based resources, all of which require localization.


Jeff Bronks, technical author at Pico Technology, chose ICanLocalize to get localization work for the company. During an interview with our support manager, he said: “The experience was positive. The website is easy to use and responses are fast.”

One of our expert translators localized elements of the user-interface for an oscilloscope into Spanish, making sure that it was written to be read by engineers. As requested, the translator ensured that the final piece was less formal than a scientific paper, but more formal than a consumer product manual. We also localized some customized PicoScope R6.5 menus into Italian, Spanish, German and French. These were intended for automotive mechanics using Pico Technology software, so our expert translators made sure to keep a technical style while maintaining accuracy.


Jeff stated that “translators were all very helpful and that translations are of great value”.  All the translations were proofread by a reviewer so he can rest assured that the work delivered is 100% quality. He added “I could manage projects of different sizes and at low costs. The website made it easy to track the progress of translations, even when handling several languages at once.”
