Clinical research and trials are more complex than ever. From start-up to patient recruitment through to endpoint documentation, the entire process is incredibly demanding. Partner with Lionbridge to simplify global clinical trial management across languages and cultures.

Accurate translation for clinical studies

Translating clinical trial documents is not just a question of language and dialect, it requires a particular level of rigour and experience. It’s vital to understand that both the patients and the investigators, as well as meeting the technical demands of the trial.

You can rely on Lionbridge Life Sciences throughout the life cycle of clinical studies:

  • Study Start-up: During this critical phase, country-specific regulatory bodies need to approve a study administered in their country. Not only that, test sites for the clinical research need to be checked, prepared, and confirmed. Speed is essential, as is careful co-ordination with the contract research organisation (CRO). Lionbridge project managers can ensure fast and accurate turnaround. We’ll actively manage and track all documents and timelines during the start-up phase of the clinical study.
  • Patient Recruitment: Due to many regulations relating to patient safety, the content given to patients (both the initial source and the translation) before and during a trial is subject to additional scrutiny. Our expert, in-country medical and legal resources handle these translations and back translations (when needed) quickly to speed-up finalisation and IRB approval.
  • Critical-timing Documents: The translation of clinical documentation for the trial, such as Adverse Events and Endpoint Documents, must be done extremely quickly, with absolutely no room for linguistic error. Our specialised workflows and resource sets for these documents deliver on both counts.
  • Clinical Labeling: Our specialised label creation and validation team spans 100+ countries and languages. We can shorten production timelines and improve translation quality so you can maintain regulatory and linguistic consistency across all markets, languages, and vendors.

Lionbridge Life Sciences uses only SME-level linguistic resources, including licensed physicians and clinicians. This prevents translation issues caused by using less experienced general medical translators.

We have more than 10,000 expert resources in more than 240 language combinations. We can introduce new customers and scale volumes up 10-fold in a single year without affecting the turnaround and quality KPIs.
