Enabling Remote Monitoring in Clinical Trials

COVID-19 has disrupted the clinical trial industry with an increasing need for the remote monitoring of patients. This, complemented by the fact that clinical studies are becoming increasingly global, has created an urgent need for the translation and localization of clinical trial documentation. As patients move further away from sites, there is an even more pressing need to develop culturally-sensitive, well-localized content for patient communication in order to build trust and drive patient engagement.

Multilingual Clinical Trials

Today, a growing number of clinical trials are conducted globally, with upward of 90 percent of new drugs approved in 2017 undergoing trials and testing outside their primary markets. To meet this trend multilingual clinical trial translation is vital.  From contract research organizations (CROs) and sponsors to institutional review boards and clinics, CSOFT’s 10,000+ professional medical translators have the linguistic and regulatory expertise and qualifications to help organizations achieve international compliance through highly-accurate clinical trial documentation translations.

Informed Consent Form Translation

Providing clinical trial participants with clear information about the potential risks and benefits of a novel treatment or drug type is essential to avoiding malpractice claims, as well as a firm legal requirement. CSOFT’s informed consent form translation services, a crucial aspect of translations for clinical studies, ensures that patients and their interests are protected and accounted for, regardless of their native language or location of residence.

Trial Master File (TMF) Translations

Trial Master Files are a collection of Essential Documents used by regulatory authorities to determine compliance with Good Clinical Practices (GCP) and clinical trial protocol. TMFs and its digital format, eTMFs, are vital to gaining regulatory compliance when conducting clinical trials. As more clinical trials are conducted in countries where English is not the primary language, highly accurate and timely TMF and eTMF translations are vital to gain regulatory compliance and access new markets.

Patient Recruitment Translation

Patient recruitment is a crucial aspect of conducting clinical trials to test the safety and efficacy of new drugs and medical devices. As more and more clinical trials are conducted overseas, using high-quality and accurately translated outreach material is vital to recruiting the right patients to meet clinical trial goals. CSOFT helps sponsors, research sites, and CROs access the patients needed for clinical trials through highly accurate patient recruitment translation.

End-Point Adjudication

In endpoint adjudication, a blind committee of experts – known as Clinical Event Committees (CEC) or Endpoint Adjudication Committees – independently evaluate clinical events from a clinical trial and adjudicates them with predetermined event classification criteria, reducing potential bias and increasing the validity of trial outcomes. As more and more clinical trials are conducted in countries where English is not the primary language, the need for highly accurate translations of both endpoint adjudication and source case documents with fast turnaround times are vital for successful clinical trials.
