Medical Device

Translation Services

Documentation for medical devices can pose a unique challenge since it requires both technical and medical expertise to translate.

We prioritise compliance, accuracy and readability in all our translated materials.

Established in 1962, DWL has the knowledge and experience to handle all technical, patient-facing and promotional documents, and to produce translations that are clear, accurate and fit for purpose.

Safe and compliant use of medical devices is essential to ensure positive health outcomes and commercial success.

DWL accurately translates and updates all documents required to commercialise and maintain your medical device on each target market, including:

  • Summaries of Safety and Clinical Performance (SSCP)
  • Instructions for use (IFUs) and packaging
    Operator’s/Instruction manuals
  • Surgical brochures
  • Patient leaflets
  • Package inserts and labelling
  • Websites
  • Promotional materials
  • Product Information for drug/device combination products
  • Field safety notices
  • Data sheets
  • Technical specifications


DWL adds value during the process of regulatory approval of medical devices:

Precise language tailored to the user, caregiver or physician.


Documents are translated and returned in the right format.


Support with planning medical device registrations in cooperation with established European regulatory consultants.


In-house medical expertise underpinned by experienced freelance linguists within an ISO 9001-certified Quality Management System.

The World's Most Secure Translation Environment™

Security is Our Top Priority

We cannot stress enough the importance of information security. It’s extremely risky to engage with vendors who can’t demonstrate at an organizational level how they keep your content secure from Intellectual Property theft and information leaks. 

We are the only language services provider that holds an independently audited SOC 2 Type 2 report on an organizational level — which goes far beyond just having super secure platforms. Our entire organization has your back to protect your information, your currency, with LanguageVault.
