Home 9 The Linguists We Hire

Translating life sciences content requires unmatched language experience and attention, which makes our linguists and life science translators’ expertise essential for high-quality medical translations. Like linguists in other fields, life science translators must effectively ensure that the intended message resonates with and is culturally sensitive to the target audience without sacrificing the overall meaning, as well as meeting an organization’s needs and – often all under a strict deadline. For life sciences businesses expanding into global markets, linguists must also bring subject matter expertise to effectively understand the medical content they are translating and deliver it without potentially harmful errors. Additional local expertise, such as having a comprehensive understanding of local regulatory policies to ensure the products’ or services’ successful approval, is required for highly regulated life science translations.

At CSOFT Health Sciences, we understand the importance of hiring professional linguists with the experience, expertise, and knowledge to be able to accurately translate life science content. As a localization company with quality certifications in ISO 17100:2015, ISO 9001:2015, and ISO 13485:2016, we only hire the most skilled life science translators who are well-versed in life science content to ensure the highest-quality translation for the target market.

In-Country Linguists with the Subject Matter Expertise

As a knowledge industry, the life sciences require an in-depth understanding of initialisms, terminology, and conceptual understanding of complex subject matter – all necessary for life science translation as well. Without this knowledge, the content, whether CTD/eCTD submission documentsmedical device user manuals, or patient information sheets, cannot be translated as effectively, timely, or accurately, leading to potentially costly delays in product launch and patient care. CSOFT Health Sciences’ professional medical linguists have a minimum of 7 years of experience in their respective fields to ensure the highest-quality translation solutions.

In addition to real-world experience in and knowledge of the life science industries, CSOFT utilizes professional, in-country translators to capture the subtle nuances of a language that can only be appreciated by those living within the culture. Our in-country linguists ensure that the products or services’ messaging is effective for its target audience through their knowledge of local customs and culture, helping mitigate any potential for misinterpretation of brand messaging.

Our Qualification Process for Life Science Translators

To ensure that we hire only the most skilled professional, multilingual subject matter experts, CSOFT Health Sciences has perfected our process and standards when employing our linguists. Through a well-defined rubric, we test our linguists on essential skills, including:

  • Technical Accuracy
  • Linguistic Style
  • Command of Grammar
  • Glossary Management Ability
  • Knowledge of Document Tags
  • Proficiency with Translation Memory (TM)

In addition, since the life sciences require highly technical and accurate translations that are often associated with high risk to patient health and safety if incorrect, we require that our technical translators also excel at technical writing in their target language. This ensures that, regardless of the target audience, the content is accurately, efficiently, and professionally translated in a way that makes sense for patients and experts and complies with local regulatory submission standards.
