Medical Device Translation

Translation plays a key role for companies that wish to sell medical devices internationally. Many countries have their own regulatory and safety requirements, and require translation of a wide range of documents and labeling into the local language. Pre-market approval must usually be obtained from the regulatory authorities in that country.

GTS provides a wide range of medical device translation services in English, German, Spanish, Italian, French, Chinese, Japanese and over 50 other languages. Our quality management system has been audited and found to be in full compliance with the ISO 9001:2008 standard. We provide translation Certificates of Accuracy upon request. If required by regulatory authorities, we can provide validated back translation and sworn translations in certain countries.

We translate the following types of materials for medical device companies:

  • IFUs (Instructions for Use)
  • Medical device Operation Manuals, Instruction and User Guides
  • Product Catalogs
  • Clinical Training Materials
  • Brochures and web content
  • Informed Consent Forms for clinical trials
  • Localization of medical device software, translation of resource files
