Quality Assurance

Translations for the life sciences industry demands premium quality. TranslateNow only uses medical translators and editors with advanced professional degrees, technical writing experience as well as native linguistic skills to work on these important projects. Many possess an MS, MD, and PhD in all areas of life sciences including medical device, biotech, pharma and healthcare. Every life science project is managed by at least two accredited linguists and an extensive QC process.

Internally, we use the J2450 Translation Quality Metric, which was developed by the automotive industry to help combat the subjectiveness of in-country translation review. The quality metric established a consistent standard against which the quality of translation can be objectively measured regardless of the source and target language. Please contact us for more information on our QC process.

TranslateNow also offers free quality certifications for all translations in the life science industry. “Certificates of Accuracy” are important documents that accompany your translations to ensure they were accurately carried out by qualified linguists. We can also provide notarized translations to those that require it.

Global Regulatory Compliance

Providing accurate, on-time submissions to regulatory organizations is one of the most challenging yet important pieces of a life science company. Country-specific submissions can take weeks or months. TranslateNow’s vast pool of linguistic regulatory experts is well-versed in working with many of the in-country health authorities, including China’s SFDA, South Korea’s KFDA, China’s SFDA among others.

Regulations regarding translations in the life sciences industry are constantly changing. In addition, medical translation requirements vary depending on what product or service is being offered and what region you are planning to enter. The team at TranslateNow has years of experience helping medical device companies navigate the complexities of staying compliant when entering new markets.

Translation of Employee Communications

Clear communications in a life science organization are incredibly important.
