Drager Medical Inc. Selects Bowne Global Solutions to Localize Fabius GS System; Knowledge of Medical Industry Key to Quality Localization.

Business and Technology Editors

Bowne Global Solutions (BGS), the world leader in globalization services and technology, today announced that it will localize the technical documentation or "users guide" that is printed and shipped with Drager Medical's Fabius GS anesthesia system.

BGS is also translating the software strings that will appear in the system's user interface, in addition to adapting the existing version of the Fabius GS users guide to the regional specifications and needs of local consumers in the following 14 language markets - French, Italian, German, Spanish, UK English, Russian, Hungarian, Polish, Dutch, Swedish, Romanian, Czech, Slovakian and Croatian. BGS was responsible for localizing the original users guide for Fabius GS and localizing the updated guide for its predecessor, the Fabius.

"Drager's experience working with BGS has been very positive," says Jens Boy, head of product management at Drager Medical. "BGS' linguists, technical professionals and product managers understand our product, the medical industry and the language markets that we're targeting. Its expertise and focused project management has ensured that our localization projects are done well and to our specifications, as well as on time and within budget. As a result, the Fabius GS has received extremely positive feedback from the global customer base. It is the first system to `speak' so many languages so early in its life cycle. We look forward to the upcoming implementation of additional languages such as Chinese and Japanese."

"At BGS we pride ourselves on our industry expertise and experience working in 64-language markets," says Carl Glaeser, chief executive officer of BGS. "Our excellent track record in the medical industry enabled us to gain critical knowledge about the Fabius GS quickly so that we could turnaround and provide quality information that helps Drager's customers use their product in markets throughout the world."
