Home 9 Clinical Trial Protocol Translations

With the increase in global clinical trial sites, clinical trial protocol translations are essential for ensuring that the standard operating procedures and the scientific protocols of a trial can be repeated or assessed in any market, regardless of the languages spoken. Protocols for clinical trials are written to standardize the objective, study design, safety measures, organization, statistical analysis, and other key aspects of the trial in such a way that it can be successfully repeated to the same standards. Clinical trial protocols play an important role by establishing a clear and descriptive document that can be followed and assessed by a regulatory body while remaining in compliance with Good Clinical Practice (GCP) guidance. For pharmaceutical companies, biotechnology companies, and medical device manufacturers, clinical trial protocol translations are a necessary step for ensuring the safety of a clinical trial and upholding the integrity of the data collected during the trial.

With a global team of 10,000+ linguists and subject matter experts in end-to-end localization solutions for clinical trial documents and life science regulatory translations, CSOFT Health Sciences can support companies with translations for required protocol features, including IRB correspondence translations, Investigator’s Brochures (IBs) translations, and Informed Consent Form (ICF) translations.

Clinical Trial Translations

Clinical trial protocols can be just one of the many documents that may need to be submitted for review by an ethics committee or an institutional review board (IRB) during the early phases of a clinical trial. With the rise in number of clinical trials being conducted in overseas markets and the development of new regulations, such as the EU-CTR, it is more important than ever to meet all the standards when it comes to clinical trial translations. Whether you will be submitting a clinical trial application (CTA) or you currently have a clinical trial underway, CSOFT Health sciences can support all your translation needs to ensure that essential documents are available in 250+ languages and in compliance with Good Clinical Practice (GCP) guidance. Even for remote clinical trial translations, our global team of certified linguists and subject matter experts have plenty of experience in phase 0-IV translations for clinical trials, and can support you in areas including:

CRO Translations

Contract Research Organizations (CROs) are essential life sciences companies that provide support through the clinical trial process in areas including management, pharmacovigilance, product development, and other services. As administrators, CROs play an important role of having to be fully aware of and clinical trial protocols and must be able to navigate linguistic barriers, especially during multinational clinical trials. Just as the other stakeholders involved in the trial process, CROs can benefit greatly from cost-effective and time efficient translations that help to ensure that documentation adheres to regulatory language guidelines and can be interpreted in various international settings. To support CROs in their role, CSOFT Health Sciences provides high quality localization solutions across 250+ languages.

Biotechnology Translations

As with other life sciences companies involved in a clinical trial, protocols can be a crucial and required piece of documentation for biotech companies seeking to bring new technology to global markets. Ensuring that the trial participants and the data collected adheres to regulations and follows standard operating procedures (SOPs) is an important purpose for high-quality biotech translations. With the global expansion of the biotech industry, and new markets emerging through Europe, Asia, and South America, it is a necessary step to provide documentation across a range of languages and for all types of technical documents, including manuals, learning guides, and safety reports.  Even more, regulatory authorities including the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the European Medicines Agency (EMA) have strict linguistic requirements for clinical trials conducted under their guidance and in multiple countries. Biotech is a crucial industry for the discovery and development of potentially lifesaving medical technology and assisting them to reach patients globally is an important purpose for our biotechnology translations.

. With a global network of 10,000+ linguists and subject matter experts in growing industries such as medical device translations, in-vitro diagnostic device (IVD) translations, and biomedical engineering translations, CSOFT Health Sciences supports the biotech industry in areas including:

Pharmaceutical Translations

The pharmaceuticals industry is a global leader when it comes to conducting clinical trials and bringing new therapies to global markets. With a growing demand for the production and deployment of pharmaceutical drug therapies in overseas markets, pharmaceutical translations are essential for a wide range of documents for the clinical trials process. Especially for documents required in the early phases of a pharmaceutical trial, to include protocols, a timely and well-translated document can be crucial to ensuring success during future phases. Moreover, the global pharmaceutical industry has strict regulations that  vary by country and meeting the language requirements can help to establish compliance with GCP guidance and protect the safety of all those involved. From translations of drug safety documentation to translations for drug product labels and instructions for use (IFU) translations, CSOFT Health Sciences offers professional localization solutions for the pharmaceutical industry and all stages of the product development cycle.
