A Trial Master File (TMF) is a collection of documentation submitted to regulatory agencies to enable monitoring and assessment of a clinical study’s adherence to Good Clinical Practice (GCP) principles and approved protocol, which makes Trial Master File translations essential for global studies. TMFs are crucial for conducting clinical trials because they protect patient data and confidentiality, allow a study to be replicated unbiasedly, and allow regulatory agencies to have a deeper understanding of how the study was conducted. Trial Master Files can come in hard copy and electronic versions known as ETFs. Given their importance for regulatory approval in markets with multiple language requirements, Trial Master File translations must be done accurately and quickly to ensure swift approval of required documentation.

As the number of clinical trials conducted in regions where English is not the primary language grows, critical clinical trial documents such as TMFs and eTMFs need to be translated into the local language and include all relevant documents required by each regulatory agency to ensure compliance and maintain market access. Failure to do so can cause delays in regulatory approval, increase the time to market medical devices or pharmaceutical products and lead to revenue loss and time for clinical trial sponsors. CSOFT Health Sciences’ global network of 10,000+ in-country native linguists and subject matter experts (SMEs) provides investigators, CROs, and clinical trial sponsors with highly accurate and timely TMF and eTMF translations in over 250 languages. We offer comprehensive localization solutions for documents included in TMFs, including:

Essential Document Translations

The Essential Documents are a significant component of a TMF or eTMF. Although the essential documents required by each regulatory agency can vary, they can include clinical trial protocols, investigator’s brochures, eCRFs, storage and shipment records, contracts, documents for Ethics Committees, and more. CSOFT Health Sciences’ global network of in-country native linguists and SMEs can provide you with rapid and accurate Essential Document translations to give clinical trial sponsors and CROs the best ROI and maintain regulatory compliance.

Clinical Trial Translations

Clinical trials account for an enormous portion of the investment required to bring drug therapies, medical devices, and innovative treatments to market in any country, making clinical trial translation solutions necessary when conducting clinical trials overseas. Clinical trial translation is crucial for pharmaceutical companies expanding in overseas markets to meet local regulatory requirements. However, inaccurate translation risks regulatory viability in the target market and potentially endangers patient safety and drug efficacy, making precise, high-quality translation an essential priority for all stakeholders involved. CSOFT Health Sciences’ global network of in-country linguists and clinical trial translation specialists enables clear, cost-effective, and consistent translations.
