PRISYM ID and Transperfect Sign Agreement to Deliver Validated, Multi-Language Labeling Solutions for the Medical Device Industry

Boston, MA, United States, 16th April 2014. PRISYM ID and Transperfect International today announced that they have signed a definitive agreement to deliver end-to-end, validated, multi-language labeling solutions under TransPerfect’s new service line, EnCompass® Content Solutions for Medical Device Makers.

PRISYM ID and Transperfect Sign Agreement to Deliver Validated, Multi-Language Labeling Solutions for the Medical Device IndustryAs part of the new EnCompass solutions set, PRISYM ID will develop an interface between the PRISYM 360 label lifecycle solution and Transperfect’s GlobalLink™ translation productivity system. Also under the EnCompass banner, the two companies will develop an interface for the XML publishing systems offered by TransPerfect’s Vasont and Astoria divisions (leading providers of component content management systems).

The integrated systems aim to bridge the costly “automation gap” between source/translated labeling content and device labeling systems and will deliver the first fully automated solution for global labeling in local language. The validated systems will provide version control and approval functionality for all language data uploads to eliminate errors in this typically complex and time consuming process.

Vince Postill, SVP of Business Development, PRISYM ID commented, “At PRISYM ID we regularly speak to our clients to identify real requirements within the market and language problems are one of the top 5 issues faced. With this in mind, we decided to find a partner who had specific life sciences market knowledge as well as the same commitment to quality and service that we ourselves have. In this fiercely competitive market, we found Transperfect to be the perfect fit.”

Marc H. Miller, TransPerfect Division President and Practice Lead for EnCompass added, “PRISYM ID shares our risk-based approach to labeling processes and systems and that’s why they are a natural partner for us. Patented processes from EnCompass and validated systems – including the PRISM 360 system – mean that device companies can have confidence in the accuracy of their English and translated labeling.”
