The life science industry has become increasingly consolidated and global. This new reality requires investment in accurate life science translation services
The life science industry has three significant sectors: pharmaceuticals, healthcare, and medical devices. Developments in these fields rely on good language translation services, as scientific information can be more easily be passed between scientists from different language groups when translated.
Additionally, without the help of translation services, life science companies cannot launch pharmaceutical products in other countries, provide medical treatment using a patient’s own language, or sell medical devices globally.
Life Science Translation and Pharmaceuticals
Before pharmaceutical companies can expand internationally, they need to conduct scientific clinical trials and market drugs in other countries. Conducting clinical trials requires careful attention to different types of documents. As a result, many life science companies need to translate documents such as signed agreements, study protocols and amendments, regulatory authority documents, and informed consent forms.
Considering that the pharmaceutical industry is heavily regulated, accuracy is paramount. Pharmaceutical companies need properly-translated terminology in order to ensure compliance with local laws and regulations. In order to adhere to strict quality standards, translators must have experience working in the life science industry. As a result, professional legal translation and clinical research translation services providers are needed for pharmaceutical development.
Life Science Translation and Healthcare
The United States is a country of great linguistic diversity. Between 350 and 430 languages are spoken in the U.S., and about one-fifth of U.S. residents speak another language at home.
When patients receive critical health information, it needs to be relayed to them in a language they can understand. In the healthcare industry, there are a number of documents that need to be well-translated, including informed consent forms, medical records, patient questionnaires, lab test results, hospital release forms, and aftercare patient instructions.
Miscommunication can have dangerous consequences. Document translation services are crucial to avoiding this by fostering communication in the healthcare industry.
Medical Device Translation
Medical device companies need to invest in medical device translation services provided by professional translation agencies in order to market medical devices and avoid costly inaccuracies.
Just like the documents needed in the pharmaceutical industry, medical device companies also need high-quality document translation services.
For medical device companies, companies often need to translate documents such as patents, maintenance and installation manuals, contracts, and legal certifications and statements.
In addition, many companies are moving their medical device manufacturing to Asia-Pacific to reduce costs in the highly competitive market. Thus, many international businesses require correct translation as a bridge of communication.
