Your audiovisual content in any language

Adding subtitles and voice-overs to your media improves its accessibility, increases reach and engagement, and elevates brand awareness in new markets.

Our voice-overs are done by professional voice actors to replace the original audio track with a convincing voiceover.

Easily navigate regulatory compliance

Launching a product to market is a process that involves multiple challenges, risks, and potential setbacks.

Whether you need translations for data, labels, user directions, or manuals, Smartwords can ensure you meet regulation compliance. Our expertise includes EU MDR regulations for labeling, user directives, and clinical trials.

Region-specific marketing & sales collateral

In the life sciences, building strong relationships requires marketing content and sales materials remain culturally appropriate for each region. Work with us to tailor your ads, website, and educational resources to best portray your brand in global markets. It’s essential to properly localize your content to fit the medical communities in each region in their linguistic and cultural context.

EU MDR-compliant translations
