Medical translation for medicinal product marketing authorisations and all internationalisation projects

Localisation is an absolute prerequisite for successful global product marketing. Therefore the bulk of any internationalisation process involves translation and localisation tasks, and they serve as the basis for any globally successful product.

Consequently, these tasks are considered the highest priority in all orangeglobal projects and are efficiently integrated into the workflow.

The orangeglobal group is able to utilise state-of-the-art methods and processes thanks to the cross-departmental expertise of its organisation, in which marketing authorisation experts working together with linguists professionally analyse and organise medical language processes.

Translation of medicinal products
orangeglobal’s approach

Quality doesn’t happen by chance - only a well organised translation is also a professional translation.

The orangeglobal group has made this approach its top priority when it comes to organising and carrying out product-specific language processes.

Quality can only be assured by a process optimally adapted to customer and document requirements that far exceeds conventional standards, using all necessary subject experts and systems and with standardised implementation, including SOPs. The orangeglobal group’s business model is organised around the idea that the different departments (Regulatory Affairs, Pharmacovigilance, Studies and Marketing) with their scientific experts work together in an interdisciplinary manner with the translation and language department.

Obtaining translations of the highest quality eliminates protracted correction loops on both sides, which traditionally involve significant costs and can complicate the submission process considerably. At the same time, the systems used as part of this process guarantee not only improved quality, but also permanent cost reductions for every project or product.

Harmonisation and optimisation starts with conducting a potential analysis of your current situation and will be defined and monitored in a joint goal-setting session involving precisely defining milestones and results.
