Here are some of the key challenges you may encounter:
- Language Diversity: With 24 official languages across 27 EU member countries, translation into multiple languages is essential for regulatory compliance and effective communication.

- Units of Measurement: Convert measurements to metric for EU standards in translated materials.
- Regulatory Documentation: Translate technical files, risk assessments, clinical trial data, and quality management system documentation in compliance with EU regulations.
- Time Considerations: Address the challenges of securing certifications for legacy medical devices within narrow regulatory deadlines.
- Authorized Representatives: Provide translated materials for authorized representatives in EU member states.
- Post-Market Surveillance: Ensure post-market surveillance materials are accessible in relevant EU languages.
- Adverse Event Reporting: Simplify adverse event reporting processes and materials for healthcare professionals and patients.
