Medical Device

MedicalDevice_InsetImage_MainAs medical device technology continues to advance on a global scale, regulations within the industry advance at the same rate, generating a roadblock to success: Labeling translation. Medical translation services deliver absolute precision, with rigid adherence to deadlines, costs, cultural sensitivity – and quality you can trust. Lionbridge Life Sciences provides industry-leading expertise, enabling you to seamlessly manage global regulatory risk, improve communication with physicians and keep pace with the constantly accelerating medical device world.

Make high-quality translation a high priority

International regulations require medical device companies to localize labeling – including software, user manuals, instructions for use (IFU) and labels – into an ever-increasing number of languages. (The average is as high as 22 languages.) Our global experts have deep knowledge of medical device translation, from initial product submissions to production-ready labeling, and we’re ready to help your company.

When you partner with Lionbridge Life Sciences, you’ll work with a dedicated team well versed in the unique challenges of life sciences. With over 40 full-scale Solution Centers that span 26 countries, we can quickly scale programs to meet your medical device labeling needs worldwide.
