Internationalization and localization for medical products tends to have special case business drivers and can take on life-and-death importance. First, there’s adapting products for better worldwide sales, but often issues like reducing liabilities and saving lives drive the process just a bit differently.
Join us for an interactive one-hour online presentation as Adam Asnes, CEO of Lingoport, and Jason Heaton, Marketing Manager at Foreign Exchange Translations, discuss basic principles and processes that make medical products different.
We’ll discuss product architectures, testing and solutions to verify functional and linguistic accuracy; we’ll also take an in-depth look at:
- Medical translation and localization best practices.
- Translation memory, terminology management, bilingual glossary creation and management, and style guides.
- Processes for linguistic review
- From embedded systems to large and complex data management software.
- Processes for internationalization and verification.
- And how to make it all work together.
This event targets global manufacturers of medical device, pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and healthcare products, including: localization managers, internationalization managers, software developers, engineers, engineering managers, information developers, and senior executives responsible for international market share as well as customer-side professionals involved in the translation and localization of medical and life sciences content.
