Shire focuses on rare diseases and therefore needs uniquely experienced medical translators.

Shire, now combined with Baxalta is a leading global biotechnology company focused on serving people with rare diseases and other highly specialised conditions. The company’s products are available in more than 100 countries across core therapeutic areas including Haematology, Immunology, Neuroscience, Lysosomal Storage Disorders, Gastrointestinal / Internal Medicine / Endocrine and Hereditary Angioedema; a growing franchise in Oncology; and an emerging, innovative pipeline in Ophthalmics.

Brightlines has supplied medical translations to Shire for more than 10 years.

Shire has used Brightlines for more than 10 years, trusting us with the translation of its highly technical medical communications into various European and Scandinavian languages including French, German, Italian, Spanish and Swedish. A company of this size and influence would rely on nothing but the most capable firm for its communications, which is why Brightlines has been in long-term partnership with Shire. We can always provide translation for any industry, no matter how specialised. We have linguists, scientists, marketing experts and design experts who can collectively work together and create the perfect global communications product.
