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.

GlobalVision provides world class medical translation services and professional localization into 100+ languages. Here are some reason why you should consider hiring a professional translation service to handle your medical product translation and localization.

Reasons to Use GlobalVision’s Professional Medical Translation Services

  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.

How is GlobalVision Different?

  1. Blind back-translation available. Regulatory bodies at times require back-translation to verify that the translation is complete and accurate.
  2. Free Translation Management System (TMS). GlobalVision extends to you the ability to use a free translation portal. It enables you to communicate your requirements, review and approve proposals and invoices, proof the translation and access your translation assets. We have fully digitized our translation value chain in 2006 before the term digital transformation was even coined!
  3. Certificate of Accuracy is available. It is typically a must-have for all medical translation projects. Our certificate of accuracy is authentic and meaningful. It is not a disclaimer or a waiver of liability, as most other vendors offer.
  4. $1M E&O insurance is in effect for over 10 years, although we never had to use it. Our clients love our work and we offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee.

ISO 9001 Certified

To ensure confidence in our medical translation quality work we provide, GlobalVision is ISO9001:2015 Certified. We 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 Success Story


Working with GlobalVision is always an easy decision. Not only is the GlobalVision team seamless and a pleasure to team-up with, but their work is always thorough, accurate, and we trust their final product. GlobalVision has always been very flexible with our sometimes-demanding timelines, and they are very fair with their price. When we started to work with GlobalVision, 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
