Clinical trials account for an enormous portion of the investment required to bring new medical treatments, medical technologies, and drug therapies to markets abroad, making clinical trial translation solutions necessary when conducting trials across languages. For pharmaceutical companies, medical device companies, and Contract Research Organizations (CROs) expanding overseas, clinical trial translation is crucial to effectively meet local regulatory requirements and conduct clinical trials with diverse samples. Inaccurate translations of clinical trial materials risk regulatory viability in the target market and potentially endanger patient safety, making precise, high-quality translation an essential priority for all stakeholders involved.
CSOFT Health Sciences’ global network of in-country linguists and clinical trial translation specialists enables clear, cost-effective, and consistent translations for all document types for phases and remote clinical trials. From informed consent forms for trial participants to investigator’s brochures (IBs), our subject matter experts ensure the highest possible quality with rapid turnaround through the help of world-class translation tools and processes.

Our team of professional medical interpreters has experience with both in-person and remote interpretation services, including over-the-phone interpretation (OPI) and video-remote interpretation (VRI).
Multilingual Clinical Trial Translations
A growing number of clinical trials are conducted globally, making multilingual clinical trial translations an essential part of the clinical trial process for sponsors and researchers. From CROs and sponsors to institutional review boards and clinics, CSOFT Health Sciences’ 10,000+ professional medical translators have the linguistic and regulatory expertise and qualifications to help organizations achieve international compliance.
We have experience translating:
Clinical Trial Protocol Translations
Clinical trial protocol translations enable sponsors and CROs to comply with global regulatory standards and communicate the objectives of a clinical trial to patients in multiple languages. Clinical trial protocols are crucial documents that aim to describe the objective, study design, safety measures, organization, and other essential aspects of how a trial will be conducted; for companies conducting clinical trials overseas and in compliance with global regulatory standards, translations for clinical trial protocols may be required for approval. With a worldwide network of linguists and subject matter experts, CSOFT Health Sciences offers cost-effective and highly accurate protocol translation with fast turnaround times.

Clinical Trial Dossier Translations
Clinical trial dossiers are crucial documents submitted to European Union regulatory bodies to authorize clinical trials. New EU regulations require each copy in a clinical trial dossier to cover all languages spoken in the member states where it will be conducted. Therefore, anyone working in the clinical trial space must ensure that documents in the dossier, such as clinical trial applications (CTAs) and clinical outcome assessments (COAs), adhere to EU standards and enable successful patient recruitment and retention is crucial. CSOFT Health Sciences specializes in high-quality medical translation and localization solutions for clinical trial dossiers, with additional expertise supporting patient engagement with patient recruitment translations, patient-reported outcomes (PROs) translations, informed consent form translations, and more.

Patient Portal Translations
Patient portals are emerging as a leading patient communication and engagement solution in healthcare and clinical trials. These platforms enable patients to access crucial health information and records anytime, allowing them to view and submit necessary medical or clinical trial documentation, such as questionnaires and recruitment material. Accurate translations for patient portals are imperative to reach patients on a global scale and effectively communicate with patients from diverse backgrounds. CSOFT Health Sciences’ global network of over 10,000 linguists and subject matter experts have experience with high-quality translations of patient-facing materials and digital health platforms. To increase patient retention and boost recruitment, our patient portal translations enable companies and healthcare providers to reach new markets, end users, and patient populations.

The Core of Patient-Centered Clinical Trials: Linguistic Validation
The role of comprehensive linguistic validation services is paramount to guarantee the integrity and accuracy of translated clinical outcome assessments (COAs) during international, multilingual clinical trials. As clinical trials expand their reach across diverse nations and languages to enhance participant diversity and broaden product portfolios by pharmaceutical, medical device, and other medical product firms, precise medical translations become indispensable. While they represent a fundamental requirement for regulatory compliance in global clinical research and development, their significance is especially pronounced in patient-oriented trials that rely heavily on COAs.

Medical Wearables Translation
Medical wearables translations are becoming essential for many life sciences fields. Just as fitness trackers have taken over the commercial fitness world, wearable health technology and medical monitoring devices are expected to help revolutionize data tracking for healthcare workers and their patients. Medical wearables use advanced medical technology, including ECG and blood pressure monitors, biosensors, and fall detection.
Wearables have several applications in modern healthcare. For example, they are used by researchers in decentralized clinical trials to monitor patient outcomes, by physicians to help patients recover after surgery and into rehabilitation programs, or by RNs to monitor patient outcomes in hospitals closely. In addition, medical wearable translations ensure that the data generated from these advances are accessible to benefit every patient’s health. From software localization and good manufacturing practice (GCP) to multilingual patents, our experts help companies advance health for the highest ROI. CSOFT Health Sciences’ global team of in-country linguists, subject matter experts and software engineers is experienced in providing accurate and efficient translations for medical wearables and other medical devices.
