Translation of Medical Device User’s Manuals

Why Get a Medical Device User’s Manual Translated?

Medical device distributors in Los Angeles and many other parts of the country that provide products to hospitals all over the world often rely on translation companies to get various types of documents translated into foreign languages. They do not usually specialize in document translation or have bilingual professionals in-house and therefore required the assistance of a third party that can translate their documents for international buyers.

They typically need to remove language barriers and communicate their concepts in local languages in their attempts to penetrate into non-English speaking markets. They usually have to get their medical device user’s manuals translated for customers abroad because the buyers are unfamiliar with the product this distributor is providing. They might have used similar products, but if the manufacturer produced a unique device then they might struggle a bit with the technology.

Companies that introduce a new technology to international markets cannot simply assume that the users know how to operate the device. They should try to create a user-friendly experience for the buyers. Even if they have already distributed a similar medical device to the same market, they have to make sure that the users can properly use the new device.
