As the world shifts to become more virtual, digital health’s role in healthcare is increasingly important, bringing with it a need for digital health translation to ensure connections across languages. Digital health and the tools it employs have the potential to provide more patient-centric care through enhancing the delivery of healthcare for patients and improving accuracy in diagnosing and treating diseases. Digital health is a broad sector of the life sciences that includes categories like telehealth, mobile heath (mHealth), telemedicine, health information technology (IT), personalized medicine, and wearable devices. The technologies that are used in digital health can range from use in a medical product to companion diagnostics. These technologies may also accompany other medical devices, biologics, and drugs as well through connectivity, computing platforms, software, and healthcare related sensors.
With a network of over 10,000 professional linguists and subject matter experts, CSOFT is experienced with working with life science companies involved in telehealth care and solutions. We provide the highest-quality translation solutions for technologies in the healthcare sphere in over 250 languages.
Software plays a vital role in digital health technologies. One of the most prominent emerging technologies specifically in digital health is software as a medical device (SaMD). SaMD is software that performs one or more types of medical functions in diagnosing, suggesting and even treating diseases, as well as improving clinical management through information. Typically, what sets SaMD apart from other medical devices is that it refers to the software embedded into a medical device that functions to improve health. In addition to SaMD, software localization for other digital health categories like health IT through patient portals that contain electronic health records (EHRs), electronic prescribing, and personal health records (PHRs) is crucial for successful globalization.
With the improvements and advancements in medical software, including utilizing artificial intelligence (AI) to incorporate real world data (RWD), driving patient engagement through interactive platforms, and improving support for clinical decisions by consolidating large amounts of data to create a full profile for professionals, the ability to enhance patient care is advancing rapidly. To gain regulatory compliance and stay competitive in overseas markets, life science companies involved in digital health must be able to accurately translate and localize their software for global markets.
CSOFT has extensive experience in translating software GUI through our localization best practices. Our subject matter experts work closely with our in-country linguists and engineer teams to virtually transcreate all software applications for life science companies involved in digital health.

Telehealth Translation Solutions
Telehealth is a sector of digital health that broadly refers to telecommunications technology to provide healthcare for patients remotely, as well as improve patient and healthcare professional education, and overall public health administration. Telehealth utilizes existing technologies, such as mobile devices and computers, for effective communication between patients and physicians, or between healthcare professionals, regarding patient health and treatment options. Video conferencing, mobile health (mHealth) communication, eLearning training videos, remote patient monitoring (RPM), and store-and-forward imaging are all important parts of telehealth that need professional translation solutions to avoid any errors that could negatively affect patient health and safety.
CSOFT helps life science companies involved in telehealth reach patients globally. With over 15 years of experience, we have the expertise to accurately translate telehealth content and technologies to facilitate success for our clients.

Health Information Technology
Health information technology (IT) is a sector of digital health that refers to the electronic systems that patients and healthcare professionals use to process, store, and exchange health information. Health IT includes technology management systems that hold patient health information like electronic health records (EHRs), e-prescriptions, clinical point-of-care technology, and other tech tools that help patients reach health goals.
CSOFT works with life science companies that utilize health IT to improve patients’ lives globally. Through translation and localization best practices, we ensure the highest-quality communication solutions for our clients.
