Medical Device Testing and Localization Best Practices: Avoid Potential Devastating Disasters

Medical Device Testing and LocalizationIf you work for a medical device manufacturing company, you know how important it is to thoroughly test your software in order to produce the highest-quality product possible. Additionally, if you sell your products into a global market, you also know how critical it is to accurately localize the content for your international audience. Even the smallest mistakes could have potential devastating repercussions.

As a localization service provider specializing in medical device localization, we’ve seen all kinds of challenges that our customers face with software testing. One thing is certain: the more thorough the testing, the better the localized versions of the software. Since we know rigorous testing is such a critical component of the product development process, we’ve teamed up with QualiTest, a software testing company with a specialization in medical device testing. In a first effort to showcase how both of our company’s solutions are tightly intertwined, we’re co-presenting an educational webinar called “How to get localization and testing for medical devices done right” on Thursday, February 23, 2017 at 11:00 EST. I hope you’ll be able to join us for this complimentary 60-minute online session.

For roughly a decade I have been helping people around the world gain access to the world's leading products and services by making them accessible in their native language. My previous experience with a national standards institute taught me how to achieve quality and present the results.  Having started at Net-Translators as a Localization Project Manager winding up a Senior Localization Manager, and finally to my current position as Director of Strategic Operations, I have learned much about the industry, but more importantly, I have focused continually on how I can improve processes and deliverables in a theoretical as well as practical manner. I am constantly on the lookout to learn more about our industry and implement new ideas.
