What is Hepatology?
Hepatology is a branch of medicine that studies the function, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases that affect the liver, gallbladder, pancreas, and biliary tree. The field of hepatology originally grew out of gastroenterology, however in many regions has since been established as its own specialty. Diseases that hepatologists treat include:
- Hepatitis (including Hepatitis A, B, C, E, and autoimmune)
- Gallbladder disease
- Liver cancer
- Liver cirrhosis
- Fatty liver disease
- Alcoholic liver disease
- Nonalcoholic liver disease
- Drug overdose (specifically when the liver is affected)
- Wilson disease
- Portal hypertension
Hepatologists also are responsible for liver transplants. As healthcare continues to advance with new drug therapies, surgical techniques, and treatments available, the importance of accurate translation of clinical study documents, informed consent forms, and pharmacovigilance reports are crucial for enhancing global health.
Clinical Trial Translations
The need for accurate translation of regulatory documents, medical documentation, and patient recruitment materials to meet regulatory compliance standards and ensure the safety and efficacy of hepatology treatment and disease prevention is imperative for local market access and product success. In addition, interpretation for patients of non-native English-speaking backgrounds for clinical trials is not only legally required, but also important in ensuring patient safety and advocacy.
CSOFT provides end-to-end medical communication solutions for pharmaceutical, CROs, and other life science companies involved in drug research and development looking to expand their trials overseas. With over 10,000 in-country linguists, an extensive network of subject matter experts, and advanced language technology, CSOFT facilitates global product market success for life science companies involved in immunology R&D.

Medical Research Documentation Translation
As the demand for hepatology drugs and medical devices grows overseas, many types of medical research, such as clinical trials, are increasingly conducted in regions where English is not the dominant language. In order to effectively conduct medical research in an increasingly global environment, life science companies, hospitals, laboratories, and CROs and research institutions must have highly accurate and timely translations for medical research documents such as informed consent forms.
With a global network of 10,000 linguists and subject matter experts, COSFT provides high-quality and technically accurate multilingual translation solutions for medical research documentation in hepatology across 250+ languages, from patient information sheets and research protocols to Phase 0-IV clinical trial documentation and IEB/IRB documentation such as AEs/Ars/SAEs/SUSARs

High-quality translation is extremely important in the life sciences – inaccurate translation along the way can not only result in wasted time, money, and effort, but also affect patients’ lives. That is why CSOFT is dedicated to ensuring the highest-quality translation and interpretation solutions for every step in the R&D and marketing process for life science companies. In order to do so, we use in-country linguists with a minimum of 7 years of experience, combined with our extensive network of subject matter experts. In addition, we have perfected our localization best practices through linguistic validation, back translation, and terminology management to help you reach patients globally, in over 250 languages.
