Welcome to Welocalize Life Sciences’ Global Communicator.

The life sciences industry operates in a world of regulations. These regulations govern the manufacturing and distribution of pharmaceuticals and medical devices to help protect their safety and efficacy. In this issue, we review the medical device industry in the EU and the shift to the new Medical Device Regulation (MDR).

Our language focus for this issue is German. Our native language speakers and production experts at Welocalize Life Sciences offer German translation and DTP tips to consider—from marketing to text expansion to selecting gender neutral words. We also introduce you to Simone Sage, a project manager at Welocalize Life Sciences in our Barcelona office, and update you on our team’s participation at RAPS and DIA next month.

As always, thank you for reading Global Communicator. Please follow us on Twitter for daily updates related to the life sciences and language services industries.

Best regards,
