Home 9 Academic Translation

Academic institutions are an essential part of developing and monitoring new drugs and medical devices in the life science sector. As the demand for pharmaceutical drugs and medical devices grows overseas, the need for academic researchers to use highly-accurate and culturally appropriate academic research documents such as research protocols, informed consent forms, and case reports forms. With a global network of 10,000 linguists and subject matter experts (SMEs), CSOFT provides translation and transcreation solutions for academic institutions across 250+ languages, from Phase 0-IV clinical trial documentation and safety reports to conference papers and journal publications.

Medical Research Document Translation

Academic laboratories play a crucial role in discovering life-saving drugs and medical devices. With the steadily increasing demand for healthcare products overseas, along with the use of multiple sites across several countries to meet clinical trial recruitment goals, having accurately translated and culturally appropriate medical research documentation is a vital part of academic research. CSOFT’s team of in-country linguists and SMEs help academic research institutions conduct overseas medical research, providing highly-accurate translations of Phase 0-IV clinical trial documentation and patient recruitment materials. In addition, CSOFT provides academic institutions with timely and accurate translations of  pharmacovigilance documentation of adverse reactions (ARs), suspected unexpected adverse reactions (SUSARs), and serious adverse events (SAEs)  required by institutional review boards (IRB) or institutional ethics boards (IEB).

Multilingual Desktop Publishing

Journal articles and conference papers are important ways of sharing knowledge with the wider research community. As the demand for pharmaceutical drugs and medical devices increases in countries where English is not the primary language, the need for accurately translated academic articles will also grow. However, differences between English and other languages can potentially cause issues in translation for academic articles or conference papers from English into other foreign languages due to formatting errors, like text expansion or contraction, in the translated document. CSOFT’s multilingual desktop publishing (DTP) services ensures that your journal articles and conference papers properly formatted to meet formatting standards for journals and conferences.
