Life Sciences Case Study

Life Sciences: Case Study


A global pharmaceutical company with operations in 150 countries wanted to reduce its translation and localization service providers from more than 250 to a single source provider. The goal? Reduce costs, increase security, and improve operating efficiencies across its global enterprise.

With a broad range of business requirements--from clinical, regulatory, training, legal, and marketing--the company had fragmented worldwide repositories of content and translation memories. Not only that, there were dealing with an inability to secure confidential proprietary information within their global infrastructure.

We helped them:

  • Create a centralized translation memory platform
  • Develop content access protocols in full compliance with their security requirements
  • Deploy an online service delivery platform to engage, monitor, and report easily and controllably—all at no extra cost
  • Additional translation memory leverage resulted in several million dollars of incremental annual savings
  • A single secure platform now manages all translation projects
  • Client enjoys improved workflows and standardized processes
  • Dedicated translation resources and project management resulted in improved quality and service consistency
