Learning Unplugged: Designing for Translation

Today, in our Minneapolis office, we're hosting the fourth in our “Learning Unplugged” seminar series entitled, "Designing for Translation." The layout of drug and device labeling and other documentation can have almost as great an impact on localization costs, turnaround time and quality as the content. Figuring out how you’re going to fit an ever-increasing number of languages into your Instructions for Use, Websites and marketing pieces can also be a real headache. Our seminar will be discussing topics such as how to create graphics, set margins, choose fonts and choose software to maximize efficiency and get the most out of translation spend. As with all of our seminars, we try to provide attendees with practical takeaways that can be implemented immediately.

Our speaker will be ForeignExchange's own Technical Services Lead, Amy Maxson. Amy has worked with ForeignExchange for four years and has over six years of localization industry experience. She holds a degree in Graphic Design from the University of Wisconsin-Stout and is based in our Colorado office. She's a font of knowledge when it comes to multilingual IFU and documentation design. Her seminar promises to be a valuable one!

Previous Learning Unplugged seminars have covered such topics as writing for translation, budgeting for translation and medical translation validation. Future events will include software localization and and overview content management.

    I think this is a very interesting and important topic. I attended a regulatory affairs presentation recently on EU product launch for medical devices. There, I heard that font size and legibility issues can be a reason for a negative CMHP opinion, which could delay a product getting to market.
