End-to-End Medical Interpreting

Professional, high-quality, and accurate medical interpretation is critical in the life sciences to ensure mutual understanding between the patient and healthcare professional. Medical interpreting for healthcare organizations and professionals is important for all parties, as well as required by law in the United States, to ensure effective communication for patients with limited ability to speak in the same language. In addition, medical interpretation enables patients from diverse backgrounds to make informed decisions regarding their health by understanding treatment options and potential risks.

Beyond hospitals, interpreting medical content is an important aspect for conducting successful medical conferences and meetings with regulatory bodies, like pre-IND/NDA meetings with China’s National Medical Products Administration’s (NMPA) Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDE). CSOFT Health Sciences’ team of medical interpreters provides high-quality, simple, quick, and cost effective over-the phone, video, and in-person medical interpreting solutions in 250+ languages.

Over-the-Phone Interpretation (OPI)

In some countries, including the United States, providing medical interpretation services for English Second Language (ESL) patients is required by law. In addition, other common life science processes, such as patient recruitment for clinical trials, traditionally relies on multilingual call centers. Remote interpretation solutions such as over-the-phone interpretation (OPI) – also known as telephonic interpreting – enables life science professionals and companies the ability to choose a wide range of over the phone interpreters from around the world. In addition, over the phone interpretation services are cost-effective, flexible, and can be delivered on-demand with fast turnaround times.

Video Remote Interpretation (VRI)

Video-remote interpreting (VRI) is the use of videoconferencing technology such as web cameras to offer interpretation services with the help of a video remote interpreter. Although similar to OPI, video remote interpretation can be more beneficial in some cases because VRI combines OPI’s flexibility with the visual element of in-person communication. CSOFT Health Sciences offers life science professionals and companies with fast, cost-effective medical VRI services in over 250 languages.

Pharmaceutical and Healthcare Interpretation Services

As the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries continue to expand globally and take on larger volumes of limited English proficiency (LEP) patients, professional pharmaceutical and healthcare interpretation services are needed to meet the needs of the patient and provide the best care. Interpretation for the life sciences industry involves a highly knowledgeable and linguistically proficient translator that can communicate information about specific pharmaceutical products, clinical trials, or general healthcare-related content, both in person and remotely. To help facilitate this communication and help pharmaceutical companies and those working in the healthcare space to connect with patients more efficiently, CSOFT Health Sciences provides quick and cost-effective pharmaceutical and healthcare interpretation services across 250+ languages.
