The life sciences and medical industry affects our lives like no other. We may not turn to it that often, but when we do, it can certainly be life-saving. Like other industries, life sciences is constantly undergoing change and innovation. Biotech advances, such as 3D visualization, augmented reality or 5G remote surgery are good examples of how technology is helping health professionals to deliver increasingly enhanced performance.
Besides medical facilities, technology is bringing people closer to medicine. Mobile health apps, for example, are becoming increasingly popular as a result of the growing interest in quick access to personal health information in this impatient 21st-century society in which we live. Nonetheless, these global advances themselves also face a challenge, as any new implementation has to undergo strict regulations set by each government or institution.
Developing new technology requires thoroughly validated specifications, and above all an accurate translation to ensure that everybody, health professional or not, has access to the correct medical information in their own language. For a life sciences translation team, biotech expertise and a medical background are critical requirements, as the impact of a poor translation can be greater than in any other field. For that reason, translation quality credentials are extremely important in this industry.

Assembling a team of 20 people for a three-week project and regrouping three years later.
In 2012, a software company with extensive international reach requested a 20-person team for three weeks to translate a large-scale software release into multiple languages, with just a week’s notice. After the three weeks, they requested the team be downsized to a security patch and bug fix service package of 15 hours a month. Three years later, the company requested the team be reassembled for the release of a new version of the software. The client wanted the same team, posing the challenge of bringing these people back on board. At iDISC we managed to do exactly that.
Synchronizing the machine translation of an online catalog in three languages in less than 24 hours
A world-renowned US-based online vendor of electronics needed to have their website simultaneously updated in three languages: English, Spanish, and French. We developed software to detect any changes made in the English version. Using this software, an automated alert was established for the Spanish and French translators and, in under 24 hours, all necessary content was translated and synchronized across all three languages.
