Quality Medical Device Translations for Foreign Markets

Medical professionals across the globe use a lot of equipment and medical technology, including specific software, to carry out their day-to-day activities of caring for patients. In situations like these, medical device translation services play a valuable role in making the work of these medical professionals easy.

And with the rise in technology, medical device companies have introduced more improved and new devices to the market. At My Language Connection, we are aware of the sensitive nature of medical information, as well as the importance of providing accurate medical device document translations. This is why we only use a team of experienced medical, medical device, biotech and pharmaceutical translators for your projects. Medical translators play a crucial role in the medical device industry, as well as the medical industry at large. Translating everything from patient files, clinical trials, labelling to marketing and instructional guides.

Medical Device Localisation

Merely translating medical device requirements into different languages is hardly enough to meet the demands of the medical device industry. When handling medical device translation, we typically consider the use of appropriate scientific languages, technical accuracy, and localisation. We work with a variety of medical device manufacturers to translate medical documents, user manuals for medical equipment, medical device labelling, installation manuals, local medical policies, etc. This way, we ensure accurate translations (highest quality) and compliance with local regulations.

With quality medical device software localisation, end users in different parts of the world can prevent misuse of the medical equipment at their disposal. At the same time, they can carry out their duties even more effectively.

The Challenges

Dexcom is a company that develops, manufactures and distributes continuous glucose monitoring systems for diabetes management. It operates internationally with headquarters in San Diego, USA but is expanding fast in all global territories. Dexcom asked MLC to help deploy marketing and user manual documentation for a variety of territories in a bid to expedite their go-to-market timelines.

The Solution

My Language Connection provided translation services and high-level proofreading. MLC supplied native language subject matter experts which increased the speed and accuracy in delivering translated documentation. The translated documents were marketing for medical devices which helped spread awareness of Dexcom’s products across Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

Medical Device Translation Regulations

In Europe, the European Medicine Agency (EMA) is responsible for evaluating and supervising medical products, as well as the accuracy of medical device translations. Because product information typically undergoes linguistic review in all EU languages, manufacturers of medical devices looking to cover the EU market, and indeed, every other part of the world, must ensure they meet the medical device translation requirements.

This is where MLC comes with its expertise and industry knowledge. We help medical companies ensure translation quality and improve customer engagements globally. The EU directives specify that translation is a requirement for medical device companies looking to market a product in any European Union member state. It is also important to translate clinical trials so that local clinicians and patients can understand them. Regulatory approval submissions typically must also be translated. Similarly, marketers and manufacturers must satisfy the requirements of regulatory bodies in every target market.

Preparing for Medical Device Translation

To produce the best work, we typically go through well-established business processes that allow us to produce the best work without missing any details. The first important consideration is the target audience.

Typically, staff members, such as nurses, doctors, maintenance staff, etc., that handle medical equipment must be able to use the product in their native languages without issues. This way, we always meet our customers’ expectations.

Secondly, our preparation involves creating a system that allows us to reuse the content when the need arises. This is where translation technology (TM) becomes important. For each medical device translation project, we update a database of medical terminologies, sentences, paragraphs, or segments of text that have been translated previously.
