The need for language services may arise during a number of stages, including research and development, submission to and review by regulatory bodies, production, and product marketing.
IMPORTANCE OF LANGUAGE TRANSLATION SERVICES FOR PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRY
Today, the world of clinical trials is expanding with many patient participants being engaged from sites around the globe. These calls for a clear translation, which is the translation of the study, must be contextual and factual in whatever language it is being read. For pharmaceutical companies that do not have this expertise, the translation industry can be a link to clear communication.
Also, translation services provide solutions to most of the problems that pharmaceutical industry faces in communicating with world populations. Clinical trial translations are filled with industry-specific terms and specializations which must be understood within the context of the end-user culture before the translation is done. The translation agency offers expertise and insight regarding cultural nuances among each ethnicity and specifically to key disciplines including scientific, medical, and legal professionals within native-speaking communities. A translation partner navigates the issues related to properly communicating industry-specific language to native-speaking end-users and eliminates costly delays and errors from happening.
Pharmaceutical companies’ issue SmPCs and PILs but both materials must meet the requirements of regulatory authorities in the country or countries where the drug will be marketed and sold. Products marketed and sold in Europe must also meet the guidelines set forth by the European Medicines Agency (EMEA), which states that SmPCs, PILs, and packaging and labeling texts must be presented in the official language of the Member States where the product is placed on the market. If more than one language is used on a particular product, the information must be presented in all languages and all versions must be identical. In fact, a manufacturer is not eligible to apply for a drug registration without first having submitted the properly translated and localized versions of these documents to the proper authorities. This can be a daunting task considering there are 23 languages in the European Union as well as recognized minorities that speak Catalan, Corsican, Frisian, and Welsh. Additional languages need to be considered for countries like Norway and Iceland, non-EU but EEA members, and countries like Croatia, Serbia, and Macedonia, which are candidate EU countries. No one said global marketing would be easy but working with a professional translation service takes the guesswork out of assessing the diverse language and cultural demands that need to be addressed to safely market and deliver medicine round the world.
