Translation of medical journal articles aimed at doctors and other health professionals.

ERS is a nonprofit international medical organisation with over 7,000 members from 100 countries. Its purpose is to promote and improve lung health in Europe through research, education and advocacy.

Web-Translations translates medical journal articles aimed at doctors and other health professionals, for which a high level of technical knowledge is needed, and accuracy and quality of the finished translation are crucial.

Localised PDFs

in 3 languages

Highly technical


Web-Translations came out best on price compared to five other companies we tried, but its customer service that really sets them apart. The relationship we have built up with our Account Manager and Project Manager has meant that we are always informed fully of project progress and can keep on top of our workload.

The Challenge?

  • Source translators and proofreaders specialised in medical translation
  • Ensure translations are 100% accurate
  • Create a localised PDF with the same layout, without design files
  • Coordinate with multiple ERS reviewers

The Solution?

  • Pre-project research to identify qualified translators, including doctors and other specialist translators
  • Create new InDesign files without any of the original design files, including all charts and graphs, in order to create a localised PDF that has the same layout as what appeared in the original ERS publication
  • Working with ERS reviewers to create a final, approved version

The Results.

  • Localised journal articles for use by members of the ERS
  • German, Italian and Polish translations of various articles as required by ERS members
  • Continued collaboration with the ERS to localise journal articles
