Accurate Medical Translations
Accurate medical translation is required not only by law, but also is important so patients can make informed decisions that are in their best interest about treatment options. The translation of medical content requires professional, experienced linguists that have in-depth and up-to-date subject matter knowledge, as well as advanced translation technology to provide accurate and high-quality medical translation services. Since medical translations play a key role in administering new treatments to patients, as well as innovating new drug therapies and medical devices, there’s no room for errors.
CSOFT’s team of subject matter expert linguists have a minimum of five years of experience in the field to meet your medical translation needs, whether it’s for healthcare reports, medical device manuals, patient informed consent forms, or whatever medical content you need translated. We offer our medical translation services in over 250 languages, and our operations are compliant with ISO 17100 and certified in ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 13485:2016, ensuring our customized solutions meet the rigorous regulatory requirements of global submissions.

To facilitate the best possible care for patients, hospitals need to provide medical communication material and patient documents that are clear, with language that the patient understands completely. As the number of multilingual patients grows, hospitals must ensure that all patient communication and documentation materials are translated with a high degree of accuracy and cultural sensitivity.

Digital Health Translation Solutions
As we shift towards a more digital and virtual world, life science companies are working to change the way they handle sensitive information and documentation, as well as interact with patients. By doing so, this also allows for a more streamlined and connected experience for patients as well as doctors and healthcare professionals as healthcare organizations transfer their data and content to a digital platform. Particularly in these unprecedented times, due to COVID-19, digital health has become more important than ever to allow for social distancing between patient and healthcare professionals through telehealth, telemedicine, mobile health (mHealth), wearable devices, and health information technology (IT). For this information to be validated, however, it must be accurately translated in accordance with local regulatory policies.
CSOFT provides professional, quick, and cost-effective digital health translations for all modern information technology platforms and devices. We specialize in translating a variety of health documents like EHRs, patient informed consent forms, clinical data reports, and more.

Medical Document Translation Services
Some of the most important documents to translate accurately are electronic health records (EHRs). EHRs contain a patient’s medical history, demographics, diagnoses, medication logs, treatment plans, immunization dates, allergies, radiology images, vital signs, and laboratory test results. This information is critical in gaining a better understanding the patient’s health, which allows healthcare professionals to make better decisions regarding treatment. For global health organizations, accurate EHR translation is crucial in ensuring the highest quality of care for patients.
CSOFT uses translation memory to provide consistent professional medical document translations for a quicker turnaround time, at a better ROI in over 250 languages with certified quality.

Good Documentation Practices Translations
Good Documentation Practices (GDP), also referred to as GDocP, describes a set of standards that are designed for the pharmaceutical and medical device industries and required by most regulatory bodies including the FDA, EMA, TGA, and more. These procedures are typically carried out electronically, and mandate life science companies to keep a variety of documented records throughout the product’s lifecycle. High-quality good documentation practices translation is essential for international regulatory compliance.
CSOFT’s cloud-based translation management system ÜbrTà streamlines the document management process to allow companies in the life sciences to hold all their GDP documents in one place. Our team has in-depth knowledge of good documentation best practices and is experienced with translating a wide variety of file types.

Medical Interpretation Solutions
Medical interpretation is extremely important for life science companies and healthcare organizations to ensure effective communication for patients with limited ability to speak English, as well as required by law in the United States. In addition, medical interpreting enables patients from diverse backgrounds to make informed decisions in regard to their health by understanding treatment options and the potential risks associated. CSOFT provides the highest-quality medical interpretations for healthcare professionals and life sciences companies to ensure effective communication with non-English speaking patients.

Across life science industries, meeting regulatory compliance standards is an essential step in gaining market access. Regulatory bodies such as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), European Medicines Agency (EMA), and China’s National Medical Products Administration (NMPA) all require data and documentation to ensure the efficacy and safety of products entering the local market. To gain regulatory compliance, accurate translation of regulatory documentation and data is critical for life science companies to be successful when expanding overseas.

Scientific Article Translations
In the life sciences, many diseases and disorders require global responses and collaboration to develop life-saving cures. To facilitate effective global collaboration, cross-border knowledge sharing and publishing life science research in peer reviewed journals is essential. Although English has dominated the world of academic research, the increasing prominence of the academic sector in non-English speaking countries means that research manuscripts, reviews, abstracts, book reviews, and more must be translated into non-English languages to be effectively utilized to solve global health issues.

Informed Consent Form Translations
Accurate translation of informed consent forms is imperative in protecting both the patient’s safety and the legal security for healthcare professionals and businesses in the life sciences. Informed consent forms that are not properly translated can result in a patient making an uninformed decision, which can lead to malpractice lawsuits. Patients that do not understand English well or at all must have accurately translated versions of these forms to ensure their full comprehension of the regulatory requirements. This also helps provide clear communication between the patient and their physician or healthcare professional regarding treatments and potential side effects for patient health and safety understanding.
