Linguistic Systems offers 50+ years of expert medical translation services for Healthcare, Hospitals, Medical Devices, Medical Insurers, Life Sciences, Pharmaceuticals, Science, and more.


Linguistic systems has provided medical translation services in multiple areas of medical translation for more than 50 years. Our expertise includes: Medical Translation, Healthcare Translation, Medical Device Translation, Medical Insurance Translation, Life Sciences Translation, Scientific Translation, Pharmaceuticals Translation, and more.

The need to serve patients and other constituents in multiple languages is now essential, whether your business is international or primarily in the US. Non-English speaking patients have migrated from all over the world, and their need for precise medical guidance in their native language is paramount. In critical situations, it may mean life-or-death for a patient. And it can mean the difference between being sued or not for your organization.

Linguistic Systems and Ai Translate by LSI™ can help. We offer more than 50 years of experience serving medical organizations. We leverage our carefully curated network of 7,500 expert translators — 70% hold advanced or doctoral 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 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 insurance or regulatory requirements, Linguistic Systems can also help reduce your risk by properly certifying all relevant foreign language medical guidance.


Medical translations require exact accuracy. So the vast majority of our medical translation work is done by expert human translators — in particular, those with medical experience and degrees. Because of exacting requirements for accuracy, statistical and neural machine translation are appropriate for only certain types of projects. Linguistic Systems’ process for medical translations relies on 3 knowledge-driven components.

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


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.



Healthcare has become international, even if you’re doing business in one country. That’s because patients are now from all over the world and their native languages are often not English. Linguistic Systems has been helping leading healthcare organizations to better communicate with their diverse constituents for decades.


Linguistic Systems - Medical Device Translation - Operating Room Equipment


Medical and surgical device manufacturers face many challenges when pursuing government approval and market share internationally. Linguistic Systems can help to ensure success via expert medical translation services for operating manuals, Development Safety Update Reports (DSURs), Safety Data Sheets (SDS), product packaging inserts, and more.



Medical insurers enable the physical, emotional, and financial health of their constituents. But lack of clarity in foreign language insurance applications, coverage agreements, claims, and provider instructions can put patients and insurers at great risk. Linguistic Systems helps medical insurers to be contractually precise in multiple languages.



Patient instructions, industry regulations, and medical best practices are always being updated. But with a growing percent of US households speaking a language other than English at home, patients and hospitals are at increased risk if foreign language communications are inaccurate or wrong. Linguistic Systems has 7,500 carefully vetted translators who offer significant expertise in numerous medical fields.



As a pharmacy network or drug manufacturer, you face increasing requirements to educate patients in native language. Patient instructions, package inserts. medication warnings, and promotional messages are all under scrutiny. Linguistic Systems provides medical and language experts  — for both translation (written) and interpreting (oral) — to ensure the accuracy of your foreign language guidance.
