ENLASO Contributes to Fight Against Cancer Around the World

BOULDER, CO--(Marketwire - February 14, 2011) - ENLASO Corporation, a provider of translation and localization solutions, supports cancer therapy device manufacturers in the United States to fight cancer around the world. Although cancer affects people in every country, translating the technical content and software for the advanced machines that treat these patients is often a barrier for treatment for those outside of the US. According to, in the US alone, 1,529,560 people in the US were diagnosed with cancer in 2010 and the WHO predicts 12 million will be diagnosed worldwide annually by 2050. This provides a very large, global need for oncology treatment capabilities in the worldwide market.

ENLASO's ISO-Certified localization processes, medical device localization expertise, and linguists with specialized medical device knowledge have enabled companies like Varian Medical and Calypso Medical, among others, to offer breakthrough oncology treatments internationally.

"ENLASO's extensive experience with technical documentation ensured a quick turnaround in translation of our Calypso® System user manual into the multiple languages needed to support our international expansion efforts," said Jed Palmacci, Vice President of global sales for Calypso Medical. "These translations will help us extend the usage of our GPS for the Body® technology into geographic areas with significant incidences of prostate cancer."

John Watkins, ENLASO's President and Chief Operations Officer emphasizes that ENLASO's involvement with cancer therapies has personal resonance: "Everyone at ENLASO knows someone diagnosed with cancer and many of us have personal connections with those who have died from this disease. By translating the information clinicians need to treat patients, we feel we are giving those on the front lines the tools they need to fight the disease more effectively."
