EU Translation Guidelines for Instructions

For their English to Dutch user manual translation services, BlacKKite follows the directives of the European Parliament and European Union.

EU Language Requirements

For many product categories, the EU has legal language requirements for items such as technical instructions, manufacturers' declarations, and user instructions. For high-risk products, such as industrial machines, the minimum requirement for user instructions translation is usually the language or languages of the EU member state where the product is marketed.

Ensuring EU Compliance

Providing a user manual that complies with the EU directives prevents claims for damages and helps relieve pressure on your customer support team.

Where no Original instructions exist in the official language(s) of the country where the machinery is to be used, a translation into that/those language(s) must be provided by the manufacturer or his authorized representative or by the person bringing the machinery into the language area in question.
