Since 2017, we have been providing language services for the hightech sector of the rail and underground transport division of Hitachi Rail STS S.p.A., formerly Ansaldo STS S.p.A. A respected lead contractor, the company operates in around 30 countries in the design, construction and management of signalling and supervision systems and services for rail and underground traffic.

Our services for Ansaldo STS included major projects of translation, revision and terminology management in Italian, English, French, German, Czech, Chinese, Spanish, Japanese, Danish and Hebrew.


Eurasia Motor Company: content localisation for the european market

Translation and cultural adaptation of content, South East Asian languages

Since 2008, the SMG Transport brand of Studio Moretto Group has provided specialist automotive translation and text localisation services to Eurasia Motor Company Srl, an Italian company that started out importing vehicles produced by the Chinese Great Wall Company and, in 2022, decided to enter the European market with its own model: the Wave 3 SUV.

The translators at Studio Moretto Group that specialise in the transport sector worked on user manuals and handbooks for vehicles manufactured in China, adapting the texts to Western target audiences and to the features of Italian and European contexts. Vehicles produced in China are designed to meet the specific needs and demands of South East Asian consumers, who differ greatly in their expectations and requirements compared to European consumers.

For this reason, in conjunction with the technical modifications made by the Italian company on the imported vehicles, SMG Transport carried out a complex and meticulous localisation and cultural adaptation of all the language content.

We also translated and adapted promotional and advertising material for Eurasia Motor Company Srl relating to vehicles by Great Wall, Haval, WEY and Ora Cat from Chinese into Italian, English and French.
