Linguistic Systems is a premier provider of translation services for Life Sciences. We’ve served leading global biotech, pharmaceutical, and scientific research organizations for 50+ years.


As a business or product leader in life sciences, biomedical, pharmaceutical, or other clinical research organization (CRO), you have many challenges. Among them, you must produce clinical results, research documentation, product applications, patient instructions, and product labeling in multiple languages to satisfy complex regulatory standards. And you must do this in ever-shorter product launch cycles.

Linguistic Systems and our Ai Translate capabilities can help. We offer 50+ years of experience serving Life Sciences clients. You’ll leverage our carefully curated network of 7,500 expert translators — 70% hold advanced or doctorate degrees. The people assigned to your translation projects have at least 3 years of professional translation experience, native fluency in the subject field and target language, and in-country cultural experience.

Linguistic Systems relies on, and can leverage on your behalf, licensed medical and legal professionals to review and clarify your source language life sciences and medical content. This ensures precise accuracy in all of your target languages to keep patients and providers safe, and to reduce your risks.

In compliance with regulatory requirements, Linguistic Systems can also help reduce your risk by properly certifying all of your foreign language product labeling and technical medical documentation.


Life Sciences translations are very different from those of other industries. Because of exacting requirements for accuracy, statistical and neural machine translation are appropriate for only certain types of projects. Linguistic Systems’ translation process for Life Sciences relies on 3 knowledge-driven components.

  • Translation and review by highly knowledgeable, subject-matter and language experts in your required Life Sciences field. Many of our translators are doctors and PhDs. Careful attention is paid to country-specific regulatory language.
  • Development of translation memory and glossaries to ensure consistent use of industry-standard (and your proprietary) Life Sciences terminology.
  • A second review by independent language experts in combination with your in-country team.


Linguistic Systems, Inc. (LSI) has achieved 4 ISO certifications for the quality of our management systems, processes, and information security. These ISO certifications are difficult to achieve and require third-party auditing, vulnerability testing, and re-certification. They represent Linguistic Systems’ ongoing commitment to the highest standards of performance and security.

You can view our ISO certificates from our ISO Certifications page.



Clinical trials research is critical to the approval process for new Life Sciences products. Patient trials in multiple countries may be performed. Linguistic Systems can manage the high-stakes translations needed for government submission including clinical trial protocols, patient instructions, patient diaries, research findings, and regulatory data submission.



Successful drug trials, regulatory approval, manufacturing, and distribution all rely on exact, verifiable translations of foreign language information. Linguistic Systems can provide the highest level of quality for global pharmaceutical companies, as we’ve done for more than 5 decades. We’ve served all major (Big Pharma) manufacturers, and many medium and smaller life sciences companies.



Biotechnology is the use of living systems, organisms, and applied technologies to develop or modify products for agriculture, food production, medicine, genomics, immunology, pharmaceuticals, and more. Linguistic Systems and the Ai Translate by LSI™ solution (formerly STS) have helped leading biotechnology firms for decades with expert translations and subject-matter-specific glossaries.



Scientific research can advance learning and better the lives of countless others. But before it can be beneficial, it must be understood. Linguistic Systems and Ai Translate by LSI™ can help you leverage powerful Ai technology, 7,500 translators, subject-matter experts, and terminology-rich glossaries to understand or publish scientific research into 120 languages. 



Your business is global; your patent research should be too. To determine any prior rights that exist in foreign countries, it may require analyzing millions of documents in dozens of foreign languages. Ai Translate by LSI™ can automate the process of language detection, sorting, categorizing, and translating myriad source materials. Your IP protections are strengthened.
