Medical Translation Challenges

Unlike many other industries, the medical sector faces unique challenges when taking its products overseas. Regulatory bodies heavily oversee that medical products undergo the necessary testing and documentation before approving them. Quality and risk management are often the most important factors when it comes to fulfilling medical translation requirements.

Although these requirements often trump cost needs, cost containment continues to be of paramount importance. We help you contain your costs without ever sacrificing quality.

Reasons to Use Summa Linguae's Professional Medical Translation Services

Here’s why you should hire our professional medical translation services to handle your medical product translation and localization.

  1. Translation to-and-from 100+ languages. The support of a wide range of languages enables you to cover over 95% of the world’s GDP consumers.
  2. Second translator reviews the translation. This ensures consistency and accuracy when you require us to use more than one translator to meet a tight schedule.
  3. Second cycle of changes to target documents is free. This gives you the ability to solicit input from your in-country proofreaders or regulatory bodies. You can also request changes to the target text without incurring any additional charges.
  4. Translation database use for future savings. You own all your intellectual property, including your translation assets and translation database. By using a database, our team will reuse translation on future product updates. This minimizes recurring overhead and costs.
  5. Professional print design (DTP) in any format. When you print your manuals, labels, inserts and packages, you don’t have to worry about mistakes that require reprint and reship.

To ensure confidence in our medical translation quality work we provide, Summa Linguae is ISO9001:2015 Certified, having obtained our ISO certification in 2010. Our quality management system enables us to monitor, audit and track any non-conformance. We can hence act quickly to address important issues as they surface. This is often much before our clients or their clients encounter them. We have the data to prove it.

Medical Translation Testimonials

“Working with Summa Linguae is always an easy decision. Not only is the Summa Linguae team seamless and a pleasure to team up with, but their work is always thorough, accurate, and we trust their final product. Summa Linguae has always been very flexible with our sometimes-demanding timelines, and they are very fair with their price. When we started to work with Summa Linguae, what attracted us the most was how they not only could translate our articles, but they could also lay them out in InDesign.

Though this may seem like a standard task, you must understand that not every company can tackle this. We found that often companies did not have the version of Creative Suite that was compatible with our own. It can get really messy with plug-ins and conversions. However, GlobalVision is completely equipped and we are so grateful for that. Their great attitude, work ability, and open communication makes them the full package.” – SanovaWorks, New York, NY

“We are very impressed with Summa Linguae’s professional approach to localization. Our product-update localization efforts and costs have gone down by as much as 30%.” Biomerica, Inc., Newport, CA
