Translation Services for Clinical Research Industry

For over 10 years Language Connections has been providing expert medical translation services for the clinical research industry. We supply multilingual support to major pharmaceutical companies and CROs, numerous biotechnology and medical device firms around the world. Among our clients are such clinical research companies as Roche, CHDI, The Progeria Foundation, and Parexel.

We work with a variety of medical documents from Pharmacological Studies and Clinical Trial Protocols to Informed Consent Forms, Patient Questionnaires and Adverse Events Report Forms.
As clinical trials increasingly go global, contract research organizations (CROs), biotech, pharmaceutical and medical device companies are seeing reduced costs, higher patient enrolment and opportunities to collect data from a varied ethnic pool. With this comes a pressing need to understand and comply with varied and evolving international clinical research regulations.

Clinical Research Document Translation

Language connections offers textual, audio and visual translations for all stages of clinical research, including preliminary outreach, patient recruitment, regulatory approval of documents, safety reporting, as well as post-trial communication with the participants:

Linguistic validation and cultural adaptation

Language Connections specializes in translation and linguistic validation of Clinical Outcome Assessments (COAs), Patient Reported Outcomes (PROs) and Quality of Life Patient Questionnaires (QoLs) as essential parts of a clinical trial process. It is often required that CROs perform back translation, cultural adaptation and harmonization of the patient responses, to ensure accuracy and consistency across languages. Our specialists have the in-depth expertise to guarantee that your materials will be culturally and conceptually equivalent in all languages, and that you will be in full compliance with regulatory authority requirements.

Our clinical trial translation solutions are designed to ensure:

Regulatory Compliance and Quality Control

Compliance with strict international regulations creates an urgent need for precise translations of clinical documents, completed with an up-to-date knowledge of the industry and global markets.
Language Connections works with linguists who hold advanced degrees in Life Sciences and medical fields to meet the highest quality standards of clinical research and trial demands, they strictly follow distinct and complex methodologies for each document to ensure accuracy and proper layout.
CROs conducting clinical trials internationally have to conform to the requirements of the FDA, EMEA and other regulatory organizations and ethical committees. Regulators require that the patient recruitment materials, Informed Consent Forms (ICF), clinical protocols and other documents be in a language that is clearly understood by the people participating in the clinical studies.
We have provided expert multilingual support to CROs, translating product labeling, clinical trial documentation, patient recruitment materials, as well as marketing and legal documents.
