A proven solution to the problem of label translation and creation is the use of an Approved Phrase Library, an electronic repository of globally consistent, multi-language terminology that virtually eliminates the need for manual translation. With a single mouse click, the Library automatically translates label text into multiple languages, even populating country-specific information mandated by local regulatory authorities. The Library also permits online approval of label proofs with electronic signatures.

Implementation of an Approved Phrase Library has been shown to shorten label cycle times by more than 50 percent, improving clarity and consistency and reducing the workloads of clinical teams and affiliate staff. The Library is an innovative feature of a web-based project management tool known as ATLAS–Alternative Translation and Label Approval System.

As a global leader in clinical supply chain management, Fisher Clinical Services is setting the pace for improved translation management with the use of ATLAS. An Approved Phrase Library can reduce label timelines, improve quality, and assure regulatory compliance. ATLAS — the only system available to address the full spectrum of label development, from text translation and approval through label manufacturing — is available through Clintrak Clinical Labeling Services LLC, a subsidiary of Fisher Clinical Services.
