Urgent COVID-19 Clinical Trial Translations

As COVID-19 continues to impact countries worldwide years after the first transmission of SARS-CoV-2, the need for rapid yet highly-accurate clinical study translations (or clinical trial translations) for COVID-19 has increased significantly. For companies leading clinical trials for vaccines, treatments, or new drugs in response to the continuing pandemic, CSOFT Health Sciences is prepared to offer rapid translation services for COVID-19 clinical trial materials with the shortest possible turnaround.

Enabling Remote Monitoring in Clinical Trials

COVID-19 disrupted the clinical trial industry in 2020 with an increasing need for the remote monitoring of patients, and now, remote monitoring has become the standard for decentralized clinical trials. 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 study 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 recent years 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 (IRBs) 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, including:

Informed Consent Form (ICF) Translation

Providing clinical trial participants with clear information about study procedures and the potential risks and benefits of a novel treatment or drug type is essential to avoiding malpractice claims, and is a firm legal requirement of many government oversight agencies. CSOFT Health Sciences’ informed consent form (ICF) translation services, a crucial aspect of translations for clinical studies, ensure 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 (TMF/eTMF) 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 internationally. 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 and among Limited English Proficiency (LEP) patients, using high-quality and accurately translated outreach material is vital to recruiting the right patients to meet clinical trial goals and endpoints. CSOFT Health Sciences 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.
