Certified Translations in All Languages for Implantable Medical Devices

In the United States alone, medical implants are a $100 Billion dollar business for manufacturers.  A wide range of devices are surgically implanted to treat conditions affecting all body systems. As this industry expands into global markets, manufacturers need accurate translations of their documents to ensure these implanted medical devices are used properly and understood completely by both professional medical providers and patients. As a leading U.S.-based medical device translation services provider, International Language services has been providing professional translations for the full range of documents associated with implantable medical devices since 1982.

Surgically implanted devices can be either passive or active in nature. In every case, however, their proper implantation and use is crucial to patients’ health.  Patients require information about the devices before consenting to implantation and after they are in place. The range of documents that need to be translated varies from device to device, but all translations must be accurate, culturally sensitive and easily understood by those who use them. For over 180 global languages, ILS project managers, with long-term experience in medical device translation, work closely with our extensive resource pool of native-speaking translators with specific training in medical device and life sciences specialties. Through our ISO 9001:2008 quality control processes, using our state-of-the-art translation memory technology, we provide accurate, formatted translations to meet every need. Typical documentation for implantable medical devices includes:

  • Instructions for Use (IFUs)
  • Patient information documents
  • Clinical and informed consent documents
  • Regulatory documents
  • Product labeling and packaging
  • Marketing collateral
  • Websites, user display and software interfaces
