Translating a manual is a discipline in its own right

Many companies are faced with this: translating the manual of your product(s). What are your requirements for translating a manual? Naturally, it should be a clearly readable text that is linguistically accurate. But the content also needs to be correct. That is why not every translator can translate a manual. Are you already using the right expert?
