Home 9 Medical Document Translation Services

From patient information sheets and medico-marketing materials to clinical service agreements and standard technical documents (CTDs), medical document translation services are essential for various document types across the life science and healthcare industries. The life science sector is a knowledge industry and relies heavily on acronyms and technical terminology. Thus, for life science companies expanding overseas, accurate medical document translations are crucial in gaining market access and complying with local regulatory requirements.

Whether you are a medical device manufacturer, pharmaceutical retailer, medical distributor, or involved in biomedical engineering, CSOFT Health Sciences has the experience and resources to ensure highly accurate translation solutions for all types of medical documents.

Efficiently Meeting the Highest Standards Through Terminology Management

Effective terminology management is essential to ensuring the quality and consistency of each document and expediting urgent translation needs with rapid turnaround times and reduced costs. Implementing effective terminology management at the outset of a translation project can save 20% or more in total costs and reduce errors by 50%. 

For companies in the life sciences industry, terminology management is even more critical to ensure documents comply with the highest regulatory standards and the safety of end users and patients. 

CSOFT Health Sciences’ cloud-based terminology management system (TMS), AI-powered translation memory system, and glossary management practices ensure that every document in a series is translated consistently and to the specifications of target markets. In-country linguists help ensure the most up-to-date terminology across target geographic regions.

Multilingual Desktop Publishing (DTP) for Medical Document Translation

Desktop publishing, also known as DTP, occurs at the end of the medical translation or localization process and involves redesigning and formatting a document’s graphic design, typesetting, and formatting columns, graphs, and tables according to international typographical rules and industry standard practices using page layout software. As the demand for healthcare products grows overseas, accurately translated and properly formatted medical documents are crucial for market access and product success.

CSOFT Health Sciences’ desktop publishing specialists have experience working with all industry-standard desktop publishing and graphic tools and diverse document formats to support DTP on Windows, Linux, and Mac platforms.

Certified Translation Services for All Medical Document Translation

CSOFT Health Sciences’ translation best practices include using in-country reviewers and subject matter experts specific to each project we undertake. Linguists hold at least seven years of in-field experience. Each technical document we deliver undergoes thorough translation, editing, and proofreading (TEP), with linguistic validation and additional services required to meet the rigorous requirements of regulatory submissions, patient information, and medical product documentation.

Advanced Technology for Content Management and Product Success

For life science companies expanding overseas, large volumes of medical documents require advanced language technology for continuous, high-quality translation. Leveraging a content management system (CMS) enables content reuse for quality, consistency, reduced time to market, and, in the case of localization, a significant reduction in translation costs. Our other AI technology tools, like machine translation (MT) and translation memory (TM), help manage continuous, high-quality translation for large projects without sacrificing money or time.

Adhering to Regulatory Standards for CTD and eCTD Submissions with Optimized Formatting

Regulatory bodies enforce rigid specifications for CTD and eCTD submissions, which include strict language and translation guidelines. Pharmaceutical organizations risk significant delays in market entry and consequential revenue shortfalls if the formatting of these documents does not meet the stipulated standards. CSOFT Health Sciences employs a proficient team of desktop publishing (DTP) engineers who provide formatting assistance in compliance with these regulations, ensuring prompt submissions. This efficient service guarantees the most beneficial return on investment for pharmaceutical firms.

Patient Information Sheet Translations

As clinical studies continue to grow worldwide, patient information sheet translations are necessary to exchange patient information and utilize patient-centric data in future research studies. Communication between patients and providers is essential in healthcare treatment, and inaccurate translations can have consequences, such as exchanging false information or sharing confidential information without the patient’s consent. Whether you are a healthcare provider, patient, or clinical research organization, patient information sheets must be in regulatory compliance to ensure patient data privacy. With a global team of 10,000+ in-country linguists and subject matter experts, CSOFT Health Sciences provides high-quality customized medical translation and localization solutions for patient information sheets. From clinical studies to patient-provider interactions, CSOFT’s translation and interpreting support in over 250 languages enables growing healthcare and research organizations to deliver patient information sheet solutions across language barriers.

Good Documentation Practices (GDP) Translations

Good Documentation Practices (GDP), or GDocP, describes a set of standards designed for the pharmaceutical and medical device industries and required by most regulatory bodies, including the FDA, EMA, NMPA, TGA, and more. These procedures are typically carried out electronically and mandate that life science companies keep a variety of documented records throughout the product’s lifecycle. CSOFT Health Sciences understands that high-quality medical translation of these documents is essential for international regulatory compliance for every medical document.
