MEDICAL DEVICE TRANSLATIONS AND LOCALIZATION

As U.S. based and internationally medical device manufacturers expand their reach to numerous countries around the world, they recognize the importance of translating and adapting content for their target markets. This is done for many reasons and for many departments which include compliance & regulatory, marketing, distribution, legal,  and human resources  to name some. Currently, over a quarter of medical devices made in the US are exported to other countries.

ISO 13485 & 9001 CERTIFIED

To capitalize on this rising demand, American Language Services (AML-Global) opened its medical device division in 1996 and obtained its ISO 13485 Certification, in addition to its ISO 9001 Certification. ISO 13485 is a fundamental standard for companies providing medical device translations. We have an outstanding translation system which includes, experienced projects managers, skilled translators, and editors and as well as superior editing and proofing teams who  provide multiple rounds of proofreading and editing by native speakers of the target language
