Bibby Scientific

Ecommerce website translation made easy!

When Bibby Scientific approached ALM Translations for their ecommerce website translation into French, the medical device, 150,000 word strong e-commerce site did not faze Stratos Magos, our Technical Solutions Manager. Here’s how:


  • Bibby scientific Ltd. is one of the largest, broad-based manufacturers of laboratory products worldwide.


  • Given the company’s size, their product list and bespoke e-commerce site contained over 150,000 words!
  • Bibby Scientific required localisation of their e-commerce site into French.
  • ALM wanted to avoid any manual input in terms of text export and reimport as it can be very time consuming and there is always the risk of introducing errors.


  • ALM Translations worked closely with Bibby’s Web Developer to integrate a system both on their side and ALM’s side for importing and exporting the content.
  • We devised a bespoke workflow to ensure that all text was ‘captured’ and translated.
  • All HTML coding within the site was protected during translation to ensure that the text flowed back in to the new French site correctly.
  • We consistently used translation memory systems to ensure cost savings and consistency.
  • Functionality tests were finally carried out with 2 rounds of feedback for the developer.


  • Costs and developer time were saved by ensuring the database export and import worked correctly, avoiding any costly post-processing issues once the translation was ready.
  • Bibby received the best consultative and specialist advice during the localisation process of the content of their bespoke system.
  • Bibby saved money through our use of translation memory software, which reduces costs for repetitive content.
  • This process helped expedite their time to market and the new site’s launch date by using a team of experienced medical device translators and reviewers to ensure a quicker delivery time.
  • ALM Translations worked independently with Bibby’s Web Developer meaning that the Marketing Manager only had to act when needed.
  • Bibby was happy with the outcome and will be moving forward with their proposed Spanish site shortly.
