Clinical research

& pharmacovigilance

Clinical trials and pharmacovigilance are both built around patient safety, whether prior to, during or after the process of discovery.

Translations that are accurate, reliable and which facilitate patient understanding are then an essential part of informed patient engagement.

Clinical trials in humans drive progress in medicine, and involve patients and healthy volunteers across the globe. As a result, clinical trials have considerable ethical, safety and policy considerations, and require both tight regulation and accurate documentation.

Patient-facing documents

Must be translated using language that is clear, accessible and easily-understood by the trial patient or subject.

Physician-facing documents

Must be translated using more specialised language appropriate to the physician or researcher.

DWL ensures that the content of your documents is translated into the right language for the appropriate audience.

We have extensive experience translating a wide range of clinical research documents, including:

  • Clinical study protocols
  • Protocol synopses
  • Informed Consent Forms (ICFs)
  • Lay Summaries
  • Patient/Doctor information sheets
  • Investigator’s Brochures (IBs)
  • Investigators’ CVs
  • Ethics Committee letters
  • Case Report Forms
  • Adverse Event Report (AER) forms
  • Insert and label text/labelling
  • Appointment reminders and follow-up cards
  • Electronic Patient Reported Outcomes (ePROs)
  • Quality of Life (QoL) instruments
  • Patient diaries and questionnaires
  • Interim or final reports
Accurate translation is vitally important when it comes to patient safety. DWL has over 60 years’ experience translating clinical research documents, and operates within an ISO 9001 certified Quality Management System.

The World's Most Secure Translation Environment™

Security is Our Top Priority

We cannot stress enough the importance of information security. It’s extremely risky to engage with vendors who can’t demonstrate at an organizational level how they keep your content secure from Intellectual Property theft and information leaks. 

We are the only language services provider that holds an independently audited SOC 2 Type 2 report on an organizational level — which goes far beyond just having super secure platforms. Our entire organization has your back to protect your information, your currency, with LanguageVault.

DWL provides translation solutions for pharmacovigilance during all stages of the product lifecycle, from research and development, to marketing authorisation and post-authorisation.

We frequently translate Adverse Drug Reaction (ADR) reports, discharge summaries and other documents related to drug safety.
