Commit excels in Life Sciences

by Hara Samara, Project Coordinator at Commit

There is certainly a lot to be said for the importance of translation in Life Sciences and much digital ink has been spilled on the challenges involved in the field.  However, today we would like to take the opportunity to share and celebrate some amazing feedback we received from a dear client about projects we completed in 2018 for a global developer and manufacturer of clinical diagnostic products.

Our client ran quality checks on samples drawn from approximately 200 projects we completed from February 2018 to September 2018 and the results illustrate the quality of translations for biomedical laboratory instruments, in vitro diagnostics systems, chemistry data sheets and IFU documentation for haematology analysers among others.

The quality checks have been carried out in all 36 languages that the documentation is translated into and our Life Sciences team scored the amazing amount of zero errors in the sample analysed, which ranks us NUMBER ONE in terms of quality out of 36 languages in total!

Here is what makes Commit stand out:

Passion: We love localisation and this is probably our most effective trait, since our passion for what we do enhances the desire to pursue excellence and makes us motivated, creative and resourceful. As Aristotle put it “Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work.”

Specialisation: Handling volumes that exceed 1 million words per year, Commit has established expertise in the field of Life Sciences. Our industry knowledge and proficiency are what makes us successful and highly effective even when things do not go quite as expected, i.e. more often than not!

Tools: Commit uses a range of technical solutions to meet the needs of our clients and offer quality assurance. Our commitment to the ISO 9001 and ISO 17100 standards in combination with the use of state‑of‑the‑art technology in CAT and QA tools allows us to build and maintain translation memories and termbases, ensure consistency, minimise human error and deliver top‑quality translations.

Tailored services: Be it a 200,000 words document concerning instructions for use for an immunoassay analyser or a handful of words from a chemistry data sheet, our expert project management team analyses the request and its individual specs to develop a tailored plan that allows us to handle successfully the highly‑sensitive content our clients trust us with.

Expert linguists: Last, but by no means least, at the core of our success is teamwork and the professional specialised translators we collaborate with. Being responsible for this account over the last 10 months, I am thrilled to see our efforts pay off and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the linguists that travelled with me all the way to the first place among 36 languages and contributed in such top‑quality results. This would never have happened without your commitment, diligence, precision and attention to detail. I know it’s been a rocky road sometimes and I would like to sincerely thank each and every one of you for the excellent collaboration and support, even when things have been challenging – well, especially then!

Cheers to you and our future adventures!
