Localization for Life Science Companies

In the world of life sciences, precision and regulatory compliance are of utmost importance. For this reason, localization emerges as a crucial factor if companies wish for their content to successfully reach global audiences in different languages. Localization serves as the linchpin that ensures every piece of content, from drug labels to clinical trial documentation, maintains high levels of accuracy and aligns with strict regulatory standards when distributed to global audiences.

A translation management system (TMS) that meets current privacy regulations and standards is a must-have tool in any successful life sciences localization program. With standardization being key in all life-sciences content, its translation memory ensures that all multilingual content is compliant and always consistent. Furthermore, by being vendor-agnostic, it can integrate multiple machine-translation engines, giving you the option to always choose the best one for each job.

With a TMS, life sciences companies can publish multilingual content in a much faster way yet still confident that it meets all compliance, quality, and accuracy levels.

Benefits of Localization for Life Science Companies
Regulatory Compliance
Leverage compliance-focused translation tools, features, and workflows to ensure your content complies with regulatory frameworks in all your markets.
Accurate Technical Terminology
Customize your localization projects with specific glossaries and term bases that ensure accurate translation of all your terminology to maintain data integrity and clarity.
Rigorous Quality Control
Minimize the risk of costly human error in your translations with robust quality assurance (QA) tools like language quality assurance (LQA), customized QA profiles, and flexible workflows that incorporate in-country reviews.
Secure Data and Information
Protect your sensitive information while still enjoying the benefits of working in the cloud thanks to the use of certified, compliant technology with the highest levels of encryption and customized privacy settings.
Effective In-country Review
Ensure that your content meets the standards of each market by seamlessly incorporating as many in-country review steps as needed into your workflows.
On-time Content Delivery
Decrease unnecessary delays without compromising quality thanks to robust automation and seamless integrations to your content repositories, ensuring your global content is always ready on time.

Frequently Asked Questions

Localization goes beyond mere translation, as it involves adapting content to suit specific languages, cultures, and regions. It’s an important strategy to implement for life sciences companies because it ensures regulatory compliance, accurate information, and on-time global launches across all markets while maintaining industry standards.

Localization ensures regulatory compliance by ensuring that all multilingual content is adapted and adheres to local regulations and standards. It also maintains content quality and reduces the risk of errors thanks to the use of term bases, glossaries, and quality-assurance tools.

A TMS, like XTM Cloud, centralizes translation assets, streamlines workflows, and ensures consistency, compliance, and quality across projects, consolidating all language suppliers on one platform and reducing overall costs. It also enables an audit trail for all translated content, giving full visibility to all activities, changes, and file updates.

Vendor neutrality allows life sciences companies to select the best suppliers for each job, collaborate with multiple suppliers simultaneously, and foster seamless communication, by having them all work together on the same platform, considerably enhancing cost-efficiency.

Integrating a TMS with your CCMS or PIM automates workflows between both platforms, allowing users to manage projects within the familiar CCMS/PIM interface. Once the translated content is ready in the TMS, it’s automatically imported back to the CCMS ready to be published, saving considerable time and effort.
