CASE STUDY: Navigating Global Medical Device Regulations, A Time Crunch, and 32 Languages

Problem: Tight Deadline for Multi-Language Localization
Ingenuiti's client, a multinational conglomerate, faced a time-sensitive challenge with their Health Care Group to comply with Europe’s Medical Device Regulation 2017/745 (EU MDR). The task was to localize service and operation manuals, Instructions for Use (IFUs), warranties, and inserts for multiple product lines into 32 languages. The timeframe was exceedingly short, and the localization needed to extend beyond mere translation. It had to include formatting and multilingual outputs aligned with the client's branding guidelines.

    Integration of Translation Memories: By leveraging existing translation memories across 23 projects, Ingenuiti was able to streamline the process. A total of 29 files were processed in a mere 22 business days, including during the Thanksgiving holiday.
    Scope and Volume: The project encompassed translating 85,911 words into 32 languages, involving 673 hours of formatting.
    Immediate Quote-to-Project Process: Although not all source documents were available at the project's outset, Ingenuiti developed an immediate quote-to-project process, ensuring no time was lost in commencing localization work.
    Partnership and Pre-Approval: Collaborating closely with the client enabled the creation of a pre-approval process, further saving time for all parties involved.
