When you’re working underground, safety is key.

No one knows that better than industry leaders African Underground Mining, who earned their positive reputation over decades. So, when they needed to translate safety-critical training resources from English to French, they chose Guildhawk as their trusted partner.

Their lives in our translators’ hands

The company’s e-learning content spanned 20 technical disciplines including drilling, truck operations and explosive handling. Lives literally depended on getting it right, so precision translation was paramount.

When African Underground Mining needed to translate safety-critical training resources from English to French, they chose Guildhawk as their trusted partner.

Our expertise

To meet the challenge, Guildhawk assembled a team with specialist engineering knowledge. Then we added a further layer of reassurance by creating and sharing project-specific glossaries of technical terms, delivering consistent terminology throughout.

The project was successfully completed on time and to budget and the localised materials continue to help miners stay safe underground.
