The medical devices industry is in the midst of a huge digital transformation. Medical device companies are moving beyond standalone and static devices to create a seamless, mobile, and connected experience for doctors, clinicians, and patients. These changes require technological innovations in all areas of the development of medical devices. This includes translation automation as it must now deliver the highest quality human translations quickly and on-demand.

The European Medical Device Directive (2007/47/EC) and similar regulations in China and Japan means medical device companies must localize their products to be in compliance. Many medical devices have limited display space which creates constraints on the length of the translated text as a result of translation expansion.

Localization testing on these devices can also be a cumbersome process. Translation consistency between what appears on the software interface and user documentation is crucial. All of these challenges require the translation vendor to have a tried-and-true process in place to ensure the best results, every time.
