Welocalize Launches Dedicated Life Sciences Division

Frederick, Maryland – January 31, 2017 – Welocalize, global leader in innovative translation and localization solutions, announces the formation of Welocalize Life Sciences, a division that brings together the recent Welocalize acquisitions of Global Language Solutions (GLS) and Nova Language Services (Nova). The merged entities represent more than two decades of experience in specialized language services for clinical research, biotechnology, healthcare, medical devices, pharmaceutical companies and animal health.

“Translation and localization play a vital role in clinical trials, patient recruitment and regulatory affairs material and documentation,” said Erin Wynn, chief customer officer and head of regulated industries at Welocalize. “Welocalize Life Sciences has an established network of subject matter experts with a track record of more than 20-years proven success in ensuring translations are accurate and submission-ready. Our success is derived from partnering with global brands and institutions in life sciences and regulated industries to reduce time-to-market and effectively communicate with their communities and patients in more than 175 global languages.”

Welocalize Life Sciences is the convergence of GLS and Nova, which were both acquired in 2016 by Welocalize. GLS and Nova each have decades of established experience in delivering language services to their extensive client portfolios of life sciences companies. The combined teams into a single organization, Welocalize Life Sciences, will continue to service these and new clients under the Welocalize Life Sciences brand.

“Welocalize is focused on helping our clients with inclusive and wide-ranging language solutions across their entire life sciences global journey, from product creation and patent translation to patient recruitment and testing, as well as localization for market launch, sales and marketing,” said Smith Yewell, CEO and co-founder of Welocalize.

The combined entities of these acquisitions under a single brand, Welocalize Life Sciences, follows a successful integration of two industry leaders in life science localization and translation services into the Welocalize brand family.
