Healthcare Translation Services for a Research Study
Boston, MA – Language Connections, one of the top language service companies in the US, has been offering life sciences translation services for hospitals, doctors’ offices, and research facilities for nearly three decades. One project Language Connections is particularly proud of is an academic translation that we handled for a long-standing client. It entailed translating materials for an HIV research study from English to Spanish.
English to Spanish Healthcare Translation Services
Language Connections always aims to build long relationships with our clients and become trusted partners. We did exactly that with a local university, providing healthcare translation services for one of their research departments. For this particular project, the healthcare translation was focused on a survey that needed to be prepped for English and Spanish-speaking participants. We were trusted not only to handle the initial translations, but also the revisions when the study was changed over the years. It’s important to note that in cases like this, where we’re working on surveys as part of our clinical trial translation services, the importance of the accuracy cannot be overstated. When it comes to research-oriented academic translation services, a survey is a power research tool. Every word and every question are carefully chosen to gather the most helpful, illuminating data possible. (The ante was certainly doubled on a project like this, which focused on individuals suffering from HIV/AIDS!) Thus a translation requires complete fidelity to the original document.
While handling the initial translation of the survey required laser focus, working on the revisions was even more demanding. Providing healthcare translation services for revisions on any document requires even more vigilance for accuracy. This is because translators are far more likely to make mistakes when updating a document with revisions, rather than completely translating a new document. It’s easy to misplace a revised phrase or to miss a revision note. Our project managers were proud to have provided extra quality assurance on this survey, ensuring that no errors were added to these surveys in addition the revisions!
By helping this client translate their survey, all the way from the beginning through the revisions over the years, Language Connections was able to help them contribute to the body of research on HIV/AIDS and its potential treatments. Arming them with perfectly translated surveys aided them in effectively gathering data from a whole new population of subjects– and potentially creating conclusions that are even wider-reaching and more accurate.
