Technical translations for life science companies

Pharmaceutical industry, medical technology, research & more

Bringing life sciences products to new markets requires accurate translations. Mistakes in translation can lead to negative or even life-threatening consequences.

KERN Global Language Services offers reliable translations for the life sciences sector in order to avoid such consequences. Medical devices, vaccines and medical products are correctly localized. We look forward to your inquiry via the contact form.

Why is localization so important in the life sciences?

Life sciences include disciplines such as anatomy, bioengineering, cell biology, genetics, medical devices, pharmacology and veterinary medicine. As medical content is at stake, quality must meet the highest standards. Mistakes in translation can affect people’s health and, in the worst case, can be life-threatening.

Poorly translated content can also lead to litigation and significant costs. That is why KERN Global Language Services offers a precise and expert translation and localization of subject-specific content by translators with knowledge of the industry.
