Key Practice Areas:

Global Clinical Trials
Clinical research is undergoing the same globalization process as other industries. Clinical trials continue to shift to emerging markets for cost savings, to increase patient recruitment and achieve shorter time-to-market. Welocalize Life Sciences provides professional translation and cross-cultural adaptation of patient-reported outcomes (PROs) into 100 world languages for use in global clinical studies. Our linguistic validation processes allow for your study data to be pooled and compared regardless of where in the world your clinical trials are performed.

Coordinating dozens of linguistic validation projects annually, our team is comprised of professionals with expertise in a variety of therapeutic areas, including: cardiology, endocrinology, genetics, immunology, infectious diseases, oncology, pulmonary and rheumatology.

Regulatory Compliance
Patient Reported Outcomes (PROs) and other measurements translated by Welocalize have been used to capture self-reported data ranging from patient diaries to health-related quality of life (HRQL) questionnaires to complex clinical assessments such as psychological evaluations. We ensure that your instruments are compliant with regulatory requirements and are easily understood in all countries.

Our professional medical translators ensure instruments are culturally relevant and acceptable to the target population within each country. In addition, Welocalize ensures language versions are conceptually equivalent to the original instrument and to one another.

Pharmaceutical Translations
Translation is required at many stages in the course of bringing a drug to market, including clinical research, regulatory submissions, manufacturing, marketing and packaging. Translation has many roles in the drug-to-market process and can impact the length of the time to market, regulatory approvals, and the marketing. The obligation to translate clinical trial related documents varies from country to country. In the United States, for example, all documentation for all participants and investigators must be in the local language.

The leading global pharmaceutical companies, medical device manufacturers and biomedical firms turn to Welocalize Life Sciences. We have a track record of successfully supporting multinational clinical trials in every major therapeutic area.  Whether translating Patient Reported Outcomes (PROs) for FDA submission or clinical trial protocols, pharmaceutical companies cannot afford to compromise language accuracy or quality.

Professional Medical Translation and Interpreting Services
Welocalize has a proven track record of successfully supporting multinational clinical trials in every major therapeutic area. We have an experienced team of translators, interpreters and editors with impeccable linguistic skills, technical writing expertise, and professional degrees such as MDs and PhDs in all major areas of life sciences and medicine.
