Corporate Communication

Along with all the specialized material in the life sciences vertical that requires translation, today’s global pharma or med device businesses need translation in their day-to-day communications as well.

Efficient translation for global communications

Having efficient communications is essential to running your business and achieving success. But using standard business translators or purely medical-oriented translators can actually slow up the process and have a negative impact.

You need someone who can provide comprehensive translation services using industry specialist resources with both business and appropriate life sciences expertise and experience.

Lionbridge Life Sciences maintains a dedicated pool of resources to meet these needs across the full spectrum of business communications, including:

  • Employee training
  • Internal communication
  • Human resources
  • Legal
  • M&A
  • Investor relations
  • Press releases

Lionbridge has provided business-related translation for the world’s largest and most visible brands for 20 years. As a company with global scope, we hold ourselves to the highest security standards.

By partnering with Lionbridge Life Sciences, you can take advantage of our global infrastructure, extensive knowledge of the life sciences business landscape, and expert multilingual services. The end result? Improved communications and process to internal and external audiences across the globe.

Corporate Communication: Case Study


A top 10 global pharmaceutical company was rolling out a new ERP system and wanted to address the worldwide implementation challenges brought about by the number of languages, operational complexities, and limited employee ERP knowledge. Issues included:

  • Multiple training documents (> 20 per language) with required regular updates and fragmented handoffs
  • Frequent requests for translation with challenging character length restrictions
  • Significant Corporate Governance requirements spanning 130,000+ worldwide employees

We assigned a designated Lionbridge Project Manager with strong ERP background and close customer proximity. We also deployed an ERP vendor base of market leaders to bring best practices to the rollout.

In addition, we implemented a translation management system (TMS) to handle the high number of files contained in the more substantial project components. Finally, we created an end-to-end multimedia solution to enable translation of on-screen text/voiceover and source development.

  • A direct collaboration with Super Users (SUs) enabled extended service with in-country offices for major languages (e.g. Russian)
  • We received positive feedback from the regions on quality, cost, and timing KPIs, particularly in Japan, the most challenging market
