TransPerfect Medical Device Solutions Introduces EnCompass System for Digital Labeling

NEW YORK, March 31, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TransPerfect, the world’s largest provider of language services and content management technology to the medical device industry, today announced the introduction of its EnCompass system for digital labeling and content management. Built on validated technology and patented processes, the EnCompass system helps medical device manufacturers reduce the costs, risk, and turnaround times for labeling translation by up to 50%, while improving quality up to 300%.

Device makers are faced with an increasingly risky regulatory environment, decreased product cycle times, and an explosion of product content that requires output to multiple formats. To cope with this proliferation of content, manufacturers are turning to XML and component content management technology.

According to Marc Miller, Division President of TransPerfect Medical Device Solutions, “Our EnCompass system is in use with the world’s largest device manufacturers to dramatically reduce cost, risk, and turnaround. On a recent project, one of our clients used XML technology to produce over 5,000 pages of technical manuals in just eight business days!”

System ROI Within One Year…or Less!

TransPerfect’s EnCompass System is an integrated combination of modular, validated technologies and patented processes that provides device makers with remarkable cost savings and risk management for their English-language and translated content:

  • Guided Authoring – Enables authors to automatically write simpler, more compact English and reuse previously translated content for lower cost and increased consistency.
  • Translation Management – The system’s translation process automation component makes workflows and linguistic assets available to teams worldwide. A browser-based QC portal allows reviewers to view formatted content and make edits in real time, while maintaining compliance with an electronic audit trail.
  • XML/CCMS – The system’s XML component content management module is the most widely-adopted in the medical device industry. XML helps automate publishing processes and supports a single-source information architecture for dramatic decreases in content cost, turnaround, and risk.
  • Patented, ISO 13485/ISO 14971-Certified Services – TransPerfect Medical Device Solutions holds the world’s only patent for medical device translation risk management. Its unique approach to risk management ensures quality and accuracy when publishing to multilingual formats.

Notes Miller, “Versus traditional processes for document authoring, translation, and formatting, our EnCompass System is revolutionary. Because we’re converting manufacturers from highly manual to highly automated processes, system ROI is generally less than one year.”

Because XML systems drive reuse and consistency through “single source” architecture, the value of TransPerfect’s patented, ISO 13485/ISO 14971-certified translation processes are extremely important for high-quality multilingual publication—whatever the output channel.
