Oil and Gas Case Study

Bechtel is one of the most respected engineering, construction, and project management companies in the world. Since 1898, Bechtel has completed more than 25,000 extraordinary projects across 160 countries on all seven continents. They operate through four global businesses: Infrastructure; Nuclear, Security & Environmental; Oil, Gas & Chemicals; and Mining & Metals.

After extremely strong competition, APT won a contract with Bechtel to supply full Russian technical translation services for a large well-known oil and gas project.

To supply highly technical translation over a three-year

Ensure all translation work was approved at the first review stage

Support all work with an in-house desktop publishing team to work with a variety of software, including AutoCAD

We provided a dedicated project management team to include a Russian national as project coordinator

All translators were vetted and tested before any translation was produced and a specialised team was assembled in Moscow

Our quality assurance procedure included technical editors reviewing translated content

We provided in-house desktop publishing and AutoCAD facilities

Successful translation results, with 94% of documentation approved at the first review stage

More than 1,500 technical AutoCAD drawings translated

The contract was subsequently extended

Our accuracy levels led to more oil and gas companies and their suppliers approaching us to produce their translation work
