With global brands constantly expanding their reach into new markets, the ability to communicate accurately and effectively across different languages while remaining compliant is not just a competitive advantage—it’s a necessity. 

Verify’s Advanced Language Inspection Capabilities provide global brands with an all-in-one cloud-based solution—powered by AI. Instead of dealing with disjointed proofreading processes for individual languages, this suite of language inspection tools offers a centralized and comprehensive solution for multilingual proofreading. 

Verify’s Advanced Language Inspection Capabilities empower brands to optimize multilingual document inspections through:

  • Spell Check in 42 Languages
  • Text Compare in all Global Languages
  • Automatic Right-to-Left (RTL) Language Compare
  • Automatic Asian Language Compare 
  • Braille Inspection in 44 Languages

Multilingual Spell Check Capabilities

With Spell Check in 42 global languages, along with Medical and Custom Dictionaries, Verify ensures the accuracy of multilingual content and brand-specific terminology. 

These regularly updated dictionaries ensure compliance of critical content with local regulations by preventing spelling errors. 

Text Compare in All Global Languages 

Text Compare, which is available in all global languages, detects all discrepancies in text by comparing documents character-by-character within a matter of seconds. 

This capability safeguards brands from non-intended changes occurring on documents and final packaging assets. 

“[Text compare] is particularly beneficial when working on files in foreign languages. As iNova distributes products to markets globally, quality teams must work on files in languages and alphabets that are not native to them.”

– Phil Sami, Group Operations Improvement Director, iNova Pharmaceuticals

Automatic Right-to-Left Language Compare  

Right-to-left languages such as Arabic and Hebrew are challenging to proofread, especially for non-native readers. Automatic Right-to-Left Language Compare automatically determines text direction on documents and compares text accordingly. 

Automatic Asian Language Compare

Asian languages such as Chinese, Japanese, and Korean, are also challenging for proofreaders. Automatic Asian Language Compare automatically detects Asian characters and allows brands to compare documents with ease. 

“A 4-language leaflet could take upwards of 2 days to manually proofread, a 30-language IFU could take over a week. A 200-page user manual in 30 languages could take months. Using technology can cut that to 15 minutes or so.” 

– William Bosley, Manager Global Labeling and Graphics, Gilead Sciences 

These features increase operational efficiency by reducing the need to outsource, and accelerates time-to-market, especially for relevant Asia-Pacific and Middle Eastern markets. 

Braille Inspection in 44 Languages 

Braille is a mandatory component of pharmaceutical packaging across Europe and ensuring braille accuracy is a crucial part of the pharma document review process. 

With Verify’s Braille Inspection, brands can translate braille in 44 languages and inspect braille regions to ensure compliance with the Marburg Medium Braille Font Standard. This helps avoid non-compliance issues while accelerating EU market penetration and supporting consumer accessibility.

Leverage Verify’s Advanced Language Inspection Capabilities and Foster a Competitive Advantage 

Brands that leverage Verify‘s Advanced Language Inspection capabilities support their global distribution and expansion strategies and uphold their commitment to quality and compliance in an increasingly competitive global landscape. 

Without the need for multiple, complicated tools and resources, brands can centralize multilingual proofreading while: 

  • Enhancing market penetration 
  • Protecting brand reputation
  • Streamlining operations
  • Assuring compliance 
  • Gaining a competitive advantage

After a whirlwind few weeks at Drupa, exhibitors and attendees can breathe a sigh of relief thanks to a successful show, full of new leads and fresh insights. With teams returning to their regularly scheduled routines, it’s important to reflect on key learnings and put them into practice moving forward.

Here are 4 of our key takeaways from Drupa 2024:

Automated Inspection Solutions Aren’t Just a “Nice to Have”; They’re a Necessity 

Our team discovered early on that a driving motivation for many attendees was to find ways to make their print and packaging journeys more efficient. Automated inspections play a huge role in aiding print and packaging companies by taking away the need for manual inspections, eliminating costly errors, and getting to market faster than ever. 

At Drupa, we showcased our integrated automations through our partnership with Esko. Esko Automation Engine and Esko WebCenter help to bridge the gap for efficiency in the artwork management system through automated text and graphics compare tools, automated barcode and braille inspection tools, spell check in 37 global languages, and the ability to review annotations directly from the Esko WebCenter.

Customer Feedback Should Drive Product Development

We met with many of our current customers, as well as many new prospective clients at Drupa 2024. What we learned is that our current customers have been very happy with our ability to solve their current inspection needs, but as companies look to scale up, their needs expand. 

From this, we have taken note of what will make our products better, and more applicable to our customers. Some of these requests have included plate inspection, UV print inspection, inline PDF spot checking, crease/fold measurement, and more. 

This is the most valuable feedback to receive, as it ensures that our customers remain happy and that our products continue to be industry-leading. 

The Value of Networking Opportunities 

With attendees from around the world, it’s easy to get excited about the potential for new customers. However, Drupa is not only a prime event to generate fresh leads, it’s also a prime networking event with thousands of industry professionals attending from all over the globe. Some of the best insights, feedback, and conversations happened through intentional conversations with leaders in the print and packaging industry – a valuable asset for advancing our processes into the future.  

Although it might not make a flashy sale on the spot, you never know where a networking opportunity may lead down the line.

Companies are Looking for Advancements in Braille Inspections

GlobalVision’s new braille inspection software gained the attention of many attendees at Drupa 2024. Since braille has become mandatory on all pharmaceutical products in Europe, braille inspections have posed challenges to the print and packaging industries. This includes slowing down efficiency in production and approvals processes, increasing subjectivity and human error in manual inspections, increasing cost due to slow inspection speed, limiting options for scalability and increasing compliance risks.

What we learned is that previous solutions for measuring braille height haven’t fully met the growing need for detailed braille height inspection – until now, with Detailed Braille Height Inspection. This product is 10x faster and more cost-effective than other braille solutions, along with other features that made it a hit at Drupa.

Week 1 of Drupa has not disappointed – from incredible booths, engaging presentations, innovative solutions, and high foot traffic, it’s clear that the future is bright for the print and packaging industry.  

One of our biggest highlights has been engaging with current and prospective customers, putting faces to names in the print and packaging industry. These organic, personal connections continue to be a key contributor to our success, highlighting our passion for our product and customer experience.    

Here are some of the key trends we have noted in week 1:

1. A Focus on Sustainability 

This encouraging trend is evident throughout Drupa, with many exhibitors showcasing their sustainable packaging and solutions. Some of this year’s keynote speakers, such as Calvin Lakhan, a specialist in the field of environmental resource management and economics from York University, and Mark Maslin, Professor of Earth System Science at UCL and the Natural History Museum of Denmark, have also chosen topics to shine a light on the importance of environmental responsibility. 

Read this blog post to learn more about sustainable packaging.

2. The Importance of Artwork Management Systems (AMS)

Creating streamlined artwork management processes has been a hot topic amongst exhibitors and attendees alike. AMS provides centralized control over all artwork across every stage of production, providing consistency in all branded elements such as colours, fonts, logos, and more. Why is this so important? Print and packaging companies want to maintain quality control, not just for product appearance, but also to enhance regulatory compliance, reduce risk, increase efficiency, and get to market faster. 

Curious about how GlobalVision can be a part of this process for your business? GlobalVision hosts integrations with Esko, automating proofing and quality control throughout the artwork and content management process. Visit our booth during week 2, located at hall 8B, booth C32 to find out more.

3. Efficiency in Print and Packaging Processes

Regardless of their size, a common goal amongst print and packaging companies we have spoken to is to find solutions for scaling up their business. As manufacturers look to increase their production volume, this has generated intrigue into tools for efficiency in print and packaging processes. This means fewer steps, seamless integrations, automation tools, and reduced errors in inspections. 

Learn more about how GlobalVision has helped companies such as Smurfit Kappa Group increase efficiency by reading this customer story.

4. Braille Height Measurement

Drupa attendees have been excited by GlobalVision’s Detailed Braille Height measurement and inspection technology, which offers unmatched accuracy and speed that was previously not seen for braille inspections. This will allow companies to address unreliable and inefficient manual verification processes, reducing risks of incorrect braille translations, tactile issues, spacing errors, and spelling mistakes, all of which cause compliance issues such as financial penalties, recalls, risk to consumer and patient safety and damage to a company’s reputation. 

The Detailed Braille Inspection software is an integration into GlobalVision’s market-leading quality inspection product, GVD. Learn more about GVD and how it combines GlobalVision’s most powerful inspection tools into one robust application, ensuring the accuracy of files as they move along the quality workflow.

3. Dress the Part 

When dressing for Drupa 2024, it’s important to take into consideration the long hours of the daily programs as well as the fact that the event is 2 weeks long!  

Because of this, make sure to pack enough clothing to have in your Drupa rotation and make note to balance professionalism with comfort, considering the extensive walking and networking you will be doing on a daily basis. Opt for business casual attire that reflects professionalism yet allows for ease of movement around the large exhibition space. As the event is being held in the warmer months, choose natural, breathable fabrics that do not wrinkle easily to help you look your best. 

It is also important to think about your choice of footwear for Drupa 2024! #Drupashoes are a thing for a reason so be sure to wear comfortable, supportive shoes as you will likely be on your feet for long periods. Bring at least three pairs that you can rotate throughout the event, ranging from dress shoes to smart sneakers. This will help alleviate the stress on your feet and will keep you walking for miles throughout the exhibition hall. 

4. Pack the Daily Essentials 

With thousands of exhibitors showing their products and services you want to make sure you have the energy to see them all! 

Every day, before you head to the exhibition hall, be sure to pack some essentials that will help you get through the day. For starters, always make sure to have a water bottle on hand that you can fill up throughout the day to keep you hydrated. Also, be sure to pack some light snacks that are easy to carry like granola bars, crackers, or dried fruits and nuts – these will come in handy during the long days and will help satisfy your hunger in between meals.  

Some other practical things to pack include hand sanitizer – to ward off any germs that may come your way, and breath mints – to ensure your breath is fresh for every impromptu business-changing conversation you might have during the event.

5. Explore the City of Düsseldorf 

While the main focus of your trip might be the trade fair, taking some time to explore Düsseldorf and have some fun outside of the exhibition hall can really help enhance your experience! The city offers various cultural attractions, dining, and shopping options that are all ready to be discovered.

For a leisurely day, take a stroll along the Rheinuferpromenade, a scenic riverside walk that leads to the bustling Altstadt (Old Town), renowned for its traditional Altbier, a dark beer that’s brewed locally. Shopping lovers will find Königsallee, also known as “Kö,” ideal for luxury shopping or browsing. For those interested in architecture and panoramic views, the Rhine Tower offers an impressive outlook over the city and beyond. 

If you’re a coffee connoisseur or a foodie, don’t forget to stop by some of the local cafes or top restaurants for a caffeine kick or bite to eat while enjoying the social atmosphere of Düsseldorf.

GlobalVision’s Braille Height is breaking new ground by offering unmatched precision and speed never before seen for regulatory Braille inspections. With the new GVD Braille Height, inspections on pharmaceutical packaging can be completed in record time and with complete accuracy, getting products out to market faster than ever before.

This fully automated scanner-based solution is the first detailed Braille height measurement solution that measures the exact height of each individual Braille dot. Previously, teams had to rely on manual inspection methods or had to suffice with automated solutions giving an average measurement value across Braille regions instead of exact measurements, resulting in compromised compliance in the EU market.

GVD Braille Height not only eliminates the need for these error-prone and time-consuming manual Braille inspections, it also sets a new standard for speed of automated Braille inspections for professionals in regulated industries including pharmaceuticals and print and packaging. 

The GVD Braille Height inspection software is a one-of-a-kind solution on the market allowing teams in quality assurance and prepress to confidently meet regulatory standards and ensure accurate Braille assets leading to safer and more accessible products, marking a significant step forward in technology-driven quality assurance.

The Importance of Braille Accuracy 

In regulated industries, where adherence to standards and accessibility is crucial, Braille is a vital component of a product’s packaging or labeling to foster compliance and inclusivity.  

Braille, a universally accepted system of writing designed for individuals with visual impairments, is critical in ensuring that information, particularly in industries subject to strict regulations such as pharmaceuticals, is universally accessible.

The importance of Braille accuracy on pharmaceutical packaging and labeling cannot be overstated as it directly impacts the health and safety of consumers and patients with visual impairments. Taking into consideration that there are currently 295 million people worldwide with moderate to severe visual impairment, the need for Braille only becomes more pronounced.



In pharmaceuticals, where a single mistake can lead to serious health complications or even life-threatening consequences, the accuracy of Braille is a vital component of patient safety. Accurate Braille, including height, spacing, and translations, ensures that patients can independently access critical information regarding dosages, ingredients, and usage instructions, significantly reducing the risk of misuse. 

Yet, ensuring the accuracy of Braille assets is not just a matter of health safety, it is also a question of legal compliance and ethical responsibility. 

From a quality assurance and production perspective, Braille accuracy is vital as it is a mandatory component on pharmaceutical packaging all across Europe, governed by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and is strongly recommended by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in Western markets, while other regions such as the ASEAN markets are working to heighten inclusivity by implementing Braille requirements on packaging soon.

Get To Market Faster Than Before 

By harnessing automated technology, the GVD Braille Height is 10X faster than competitor solutions and cuts down inspection times dramatically, from what would previously take several hours, down to just a few minutes. This drastic reduction in inspections enables teams to handle larger volumes of inspections with the same (or less) labor resources, boosting productivity and streamlining operations.

In the competitive EU medicines environment, time to market is a critical factor for success. The Braille Height inspection software streamlines inspection processes for Braille assets, allowing products to move more quickly from production to market. This speed can provide a competitive advantage, enabling companies to capture market share more effectively. It also aids teams specifically in pharma packaging to produce fast and accurate products allowing for life saving medicines and drugs to reach consumers more quickly.

All of these capabilities allow teams to accelerate their inspection times and get vital pharmaceutical products to markets all across Europe at never before seen speeds. 

Experience Unmatched Braille Accuracy Through Precise Inspections

Traditionally, Braille inspections have been conducted manually to ensure the accuracy of Braille on packaging, labeling, and other regulatory documentation. This method involved trained personnel visually inspecting for obvious defects such as missing dots, misalignment, or inconsistencies in the Braille pattern. It also involved tactile inspections where Braille would be manually felt to ensure that the dots are raised to the correct height, are distinguishable to the touch, and are translated properly.

Due to the high risks that come with manual inspections, these methods have proven to be unreliable verification processes that are highly susceptible to human error, including oversight and fatigue. The GVD Braille Height mitigates these risks by automating the inspection process, thus significantly lowering the chances of mistakes that can compromise the quality and compliance of Braille outputs.

The Braille Height inspection software enables teams to check for Braille accuracy through automated inspections that check for Braille height, spacing, translations, missing dots, and more in one comprehensive scan. For Braille height specifically, the software inspects the exact height of each individual Braille dot ensuring the accuracy of Braille assets with extreme precision. 

In a matter of minutes, the inspection will yield a detailed report of all non-compliant Braille dots on packaging assets, allowing teams to make adjustments accordingly and ensure the complete accuracy of their regulatory documentation. 

Currently, GVD Braille Height is the most accurate on the market, yielding inspections that are 2 X more accurate than competitor solutions. 

Have Complete Confidence in Your Compliance 

For pharmaceutical and packaging industries, the accuracy of Braille on packaging and labeling is critical. This is due to the fact that errors in Braille can lead to devastating non-compliance issues.

When it comes to inspecting Braille accuracy on regulatory content such as packaging and labeling files, the process is done to ensure, amongst many things, the compliance with the Marburg Medium Font Standard as well as ISO 17351:2013 requirements for Braille on pharmaceutical products. 

Braille inspections in particular have posed challenges to the pharmaceutical and print and packaging industries as stringent regulations such as the Marburg Medium Font Standard requires a height of 0.20mm, with many companies producing at a height of 0.10mm. This makes Braille’s height incredibly difficult to measure through manual inspections and heightens the risk of errors slipping through that can lead to non-compliance issues.

GVD Braille Height addresses these unreliable and inefficient manual verification processes, reducing risks of incorrect Braille translations, tactile issues, spacing errors, and spelling mistakes, all of which cause compliance issues such as financial penalties, recalls, risk to consumer and patient safety and damage to a company’s reputation. 

This automated solution detects even minor discrepancies in Braille assets by inspecting each individual Braille dot, thereby increasing the accuracy and reliability of Braille asset verification. Not only does it render manual inspections obsolete, it outpaces other automated solutions that only give average measurement values across Braille regions.   

This advanced technology allows teams and organizations to avoid the consequences of non-compliance as they can now meet regulatory standards with greater precision, accuracy, and speed.

A New Standard for Braille Inspections

Due to its never-before seen accuracy, precision, and speed, the GVD Braille Height is a market-leading solution that sets a new standard for Braille inspections.

The OCR Technology Gap 

Previously, without OCR proofreading technology, regulatory, commercial, and labeling professionals in regulated industries, as well as the agencies that serve them, struggled with manual processes, facing challenges in handling flattened documents containing rasterized text. They were forced to perform visual text extractions, manual proofreading, and manual data entries.

While receiving flattened documents is often out of their control due to the many stakeholders often involved in working on a single document, in the absence of OCR technology, having to perform manual proofreading hinders efficiency, exposes them to potential errors and compliance risks, compromises consumer and patient safety, and causes bottlenecks in the asset development process. 

These critical problems only worsen with the added challenge of localization and translation tasks necessary for scalable, multinational operations.
