Qualitative Research Translations

Capturing vital health observations across language barriers through qualitative research translations

Contact us now

Within the sphere of public health, capturing and understanding the subjective experience of diseases and their treatments is one of the furthest reaching challenges of advancing new solutions, making qualitative research translations an increasingly important area of medical localization. With a focus on non-numeric data – the “how” and “why” of clinical evidence – qualitative research can help ensure that the societal impact of new drugs, medical device, and therapeutic methods is accounted for alongside statistical data. Doing so effectively, however, requires the ability to capture and document exchanges with participants in diverse study groups and demographics, particularly under the latest FDA mandates for diversity in clinical research.

For academic and private research groups working to access the unique perspectives of multilingual study groups, CSOFT Health Sciences offers a full range of qualitative research translation and interpreting solutions in 250+ languages. Whether it is enabling phone conversations with participants in distant regions or measuring a particular demographic’s experience of a health initiative, our global network of more than 10,000 linguists and subject matter experts can help ensure no one group’s experience is left unstudied during medical product development.

From Quantitative to Qualitative Research: End-to-End Clinical Study Translations

Whether it is meeting the challenges of engaging people’s personal experiences in health care or evaluating raw clinical data from diverse patients, the multilingual translation needs of groups conducting clinical studies are vast. With both interventional and non-interventional studies engaging the subjective experiences of patients, as well as potentially the black-and-white clinical data resulting from their participation, qualitative research translations are often just one of many needs in this important area of medical research. From study-startup to endpoint adjudication, localizing clinical study materials, such as clinical outcome assessments, patient enrollment forms, and informed consent forms, is crucial in conducting an international clinical trial or observational study.

Capturing the Patient Voice: Interpreting for Qualitative Research Interviews

In qualitative research, the emphasis on people’s individual experiences most often requires extensive time in discussion, often across linguistic and cultural barriers. This makes multilingual interpreting an essential communication asset enabling researchers and clinicians to reliably form impressions and reference points from the ideal study participants, regardless of language background. Whether it is over the phone (OPI) or in person, effective interpreting requires the talents of specialized linguists who are knowledgeable and available in the regions and languages requiring translation support.
