Medical devices and healthcare products include instruments, equipment, implants, materials, etc. used to diagnose, prevent and treat disease in human beings. They are also used for other purposes, such as contraception. These products are subject to strict regulations that can vary depending on the country where the product is sold. Medical devices are classified into the following groups:
- Class I: devices with a very low risk factor.
- Class II: devices with a moderate risk factor.
- Class III: devices with a high potential risk factor.
- Class IV: devices that are considered to be the highest risk.
The greater the risk factor and invasiveness, the more crucial it is that the translation is correct. There is no room for error. All related texts, such as IFUs (instructions for use), user manuals, labelling, software, catalogues and brochures must be faithful to the original, accurate and precise. That is why our linguists are technical specialists of proven expertise and the exhaustive checking process demanded by standard ISO 17100 further guarantees error-free translations with no inconsistencies or inaccuracies.
