Medical device translations

Medical device translations

In our increasingly global economy, it is essential for the people in the medical device community to ensure that they are able to market and sell their products to as many people as possible regardless of cultural or language barriers.

Medical device translation services help companies in the life sciences industries to provide accurate, informative, and safety-ensuring materials to patients, caregivers, and healthcare professionals in all of their language markets and throughout the product life cycles.

Required Medical Certifications of LSPs

Before selecting a medical translation and localization vendor, a medical device company should make sure to check with the LSP to see if there compliant with ISO 13485:2003 which is an ISO standard that outlines specific quality management system requirements for companies providing medical devices and related services. ISO 13485:2003 also includes some of the requirements of ISO 9001:2008. An LSP needs to work according to the standard when they provide services to these types of businesses even though LSPs arent developing medical devices.

Translation Services in Medical Device Companies

Translation services have a gigantic impact in meeting the regulatory directives in different nations. In general, medical device documentation and labeling must be available in the official dialects of every country. Materials that require translation include the medical device labels, Instructions for Use (IFU), packaging, user interface (UI), marketing materials and other technical information. Medical device companies that sell their products worldwide may need to translate these materials in many different languages.

Accuracy and traceable processes are very important, especially for medical translations. An LSP should have defined quality standards, procedures, service levels, monitoring, security and continuous improvement processes. Medical device translation must meet strict industry standards in order to be accepted by regulators.
