For every company requiring translation, the need for a quality service with rapid delivery and technical expertise is paramount. This is especially true for clients within the life sciences sector such as Johnson and Johnson, AstraZeneca and GlaxoSmithKline.

As manufacturers of medical and surgical products, these companies export on a global scale and are committed to providing the most accurate information for their intended audience. They also have a legal requirement to produce labelling or instructions in every language spoken within their target markets - Whether prescribed dosage directions or product description, any incorrect translation of this information could be extremely detrimental and potentially fatal.

Inaccurate translation for such companies can be costly, both in the cost of correcting poor work, but more seriously the potential cost to the health of the patient or end user of the product.

thebigword understand how critical translation can be for our clients and have been providing expert localisation services to the life sciences sector for over 10 years.

Our processes guarantee the following on each piece of work:

Many translators contracted to thebigword are practicing surgeons or doctors, ensuring that the expertise applied to the translation and terminology used throughout will be industry standard.

Quality of Project management
Our project management teams are trained specifically to handle projects of this nature. We are ISO 9001:2000 accredited and all project teams are audited by the client to ensure that standards are upheld throughout.

Quality of end product
We provide translation, typesetting and proofreading as standard on all projects, guaranteeing that your source documentation is easily and efficiently reproduced into your required target languages.

These innovations have saved many of our clients up to a staggering 70% on their translation spend whilst simultaneously increasing accuracy.
