Life sciences translations

At GLS we know what is at stake with translations in the life sciences industry. We understand that our translations play an essential role in registering your new drug products or medical devices and bringing them to market quickly and successfully. We take this role very seriously and have built our business on a foundation of the highest standards of quality and service. Our translations will meet and even exceed the most stringent regulatory requirements and impress even the most rigorous auditor. GLS is certified to ISO 9001 and ISO 17100.

We specialize in translating pharmaceutical manufacturing documentation, such as master batch records, standard operating procedures, validation protocols and reports, test methods, batch packaging records, and deviation reports. You can count on us to deliver professional, accurate translations of your technical documentation on time, every time.

Corporate communications and publications

With our in-house staff of experienced translators and editors as well as a select network of freelancers, we welcome a variety of corporate and business communications translation and transcreation projects, with an emphasis on accuracy and readability. Our bilingual staff translates your texts into German and English with the utmost care, capturing the register and style needed to reach your intended audience in the target language. We can take on all of your corporate communications projects, giving you the right voice in German or English. We put as much thought and care into translating your texts as you do in writing them. We have translated award-winning annual reports, corporate newsletters and magazines, press releases, employee training materials, intranet articles, and more.

Other specialized translations

Since we specialize in only one language pair, we have the expertise to go broad and deep on almost any subject matter. With 40 years of experience in translating texts from a myriad of fields and disciplines, we can put together a team of experts for almost any topic: high-tech manufacturing, legal documents and contracts, IT, solar technology, logistics, medical and scientific journal articles, annual reports, consolidated financial statements, advertising, early childhood education, museum installations, recovering looted artworks, and more. We’ve translated everything from cookbooks to cutting-edge late night comedy. You name it, we’ve done it. We also provide interpreting, transcription, transcreation, and subtitling services.

what to expect

Our Process

At GLS, we use the right people and state-of-the-art tools to consistently produce extremely accurate translations of the highest quality. Our translation process sets us apart from other translation companies and involves five key elements:

01.

02.

03.

01.

Translation by native speakers of the target language

We work only with professional translators translating into their native language. No exceptions! We take pride in pairing the right translators with the right projects and using the right tools for the job.

02.

Editing for style and consistency

Meticulous and experienced editing ensures that the final translation is accurate and truly “localized” into the target language. Occasionally, this step may also include involving an expert in the field who is not familiar with the source language, if necessary.

03.

Final proofreading by a trained translator who is an expert in the field

Before delivery, each translation receives one final review to triple-check accuracy and ensure that the final text reads like an original and uses the terminology that is customary for the given subject area and client preferences.

04.

05.

04.

Research and terminology management from beginning to end

Terminology management is vital to the translation process. CAT tools, TM systems, and project-specific glossaries are indispensable for ensuring accurate and consistent terminology. But finding the right term also involves maintaining open lines of communication with our clients, consulting with a subject matter expert, and researching parallel texts.

05.

Formatting and delivery

We format your documents in accordance with your specifications and save them electronically in the format you request. Our final products radiate professionalism so you can trust that they will meet even the most stringent requirements. Our project managers, translators, editors, and proofreaders work as a team to ensure the best possible outcome, and we actively solicit client feedback after each project. With regard to delivery, we are the best in the business: 99.9% on time!
