Andiamo! has been our trusted approved supplier and partner for medical translations since 2018 – they are reliable, efficient, and have a friendly project management team. We use their translation, revision, and foreign language typesetting service to translate into multiple languages. As a medical device manufacturer, compliance with the various international regulatory standards is of critical importance. We know that our documentation will be translated accurately and to a high standard which is so important for our industry. We have no hesitation in recommending them!

This friendly and efficient translation service is very easy to deal with. We provided Word documents in English and received them in translation a surprisingly short time later, also in Word, and looking good. Very pleased with the service.

Andiamo! has recently been approved as our translation agency for all medical translations. The knowledge and experience demonstrated by the terminology and overall quality of their translations shows their expertise in this field. It is pleasing to know that critical content is being translated to a high standard.

Since we have started using Andiamo! we have cut out our in-house translating significantly. Easy to speak to, very responsive with a great attention to detail and delivery to high standards are commendable. In short: accurate, reliable and very proactive.

Andiamo provide us with monthly translations of multiple transcripts into nine languages for the pharmaceutical industry. No matter how immediate our deadlines have been, Finola has gone above and beyond in order to meet or better our requirements. The translators go to great lengths to ensure the accuracy and relevance of the content and the results are exemplary.

Gold service medical device translation

We respond to all enquiries into our medical device translation services with a quote for our premium Gold Service package. This includes:

  1. Translation by our professional and experienced medical specialist translator.
  2. Revision by a second medical specialist linguist per language. Our linguists can utilise any of your existing glossaries and reference materials. This means that we can match the style, and use previous terminology from existing translations for consistency.
  3. The translations will then be checked by our in-house Projects team, all of whom are graduate linguists. We use our own expertise alongside innovative Quality Assurance tools to ensure the translations are fully verified before we send them to you. 

This means that your translations are therefore checked three times before they reach you: by the original translators, by the revisers, and by in-house Andiamo! linguists. 

Certificates of authenticity for your translations can also be provided upon request.

Foreign language typesetting for medical device documents

Often, customers of our medical device translation services also require foreign language setting for print and or digital publication, a service we’ve provided for over 3 decades.

If you require documents like IFUs or brochures in languages that have different scripts or alignments (eg Korean, Hebrew, Arabic), we can offer our DTP service. This ensures that the format is clear and easy to read, and that your newly translated text matches the format and style of the original.

If you send us your artwork at the quote stage, we can provide an accurate quotation rather than an estimate from a pdf. This also means that our skilled typesetters can accurately match the translation to the original format and saves costs in comparison with translating a Word document first and then typesetting it afterwards.

Discounted medical device translation services

All our clients can receive discounts on their medical device translations thanks to our specialised Translation Memory software which calculates the number of repeated segments of text when analysing files for quotation. We can then offer discounted rates for the translation of these segments, as they won’t need to be translated from scratch every time they occur.

In addition, repeat customers of our medical device translation services can enjoy further discounts which is particularly helpful for updates of product guides etc. Our software stores your translations in a unique memory bank, and then checks any new copy against text we have previously translated for you. Discounts are applied for similarities and repetitions between them. This software also ensures consistency across all your translations, reminding our translators how they translated a certain phrase in the past, and supports the ability to import your existing glossaries for our translators to use.

Confidentiality assured

Your privacy and confidentiality are of the utmost importance to Andiamo!

All our linguists and our in-house staff are required to sign a non-disclosure agreement when joining Andiamo! and working on our medical device translation services. Andiamo! is also happy to sign specific non-disclosure agreements for your company, and our Terms of Business ensure confidentiality between your organisation, us, and our linguists.
