Translation of Cooking Manuals

Cooking manuals are complex documents which are frequently published by official organizations in various countries. The goal of these publications can vary greatly. Sometimes they seek to standardize the preparation of certain products from a country or region and other times they are training documents, the purpose of which is to professionalize the restaurant industry. There are also manuals which are aimed more at hygiene and food safety standards.

These training documents are a great source of knowledge.

Writing and publishing these manuals entail a significant investment by the government organizations in charge of creating them. These training documents are a great source of knowledge not only for the general public but also for any person or business with professional interest in the gastronomy of that particular area.

The translation process for cooking manuals is complex as it requires significant terminological research. Given that the aim of these manuals is to train professionals, these projects require extensive industry knowledge, particularly when they involve regulations regarding storage, transport of frozen food, cooking techniques and import and export regulations.
