Pharmaceutical translation services are written translations prepared at various stages of drug development. Translation for the pharmaceutical industry plays a critical role in bringing new pharmaceutical drugs to the market and is required in every step of the process from research and regulatory compliance to drug manufacturing, packaging, and labeling.

Why is translation crucial for the pharmaceutical industry? In an increasingly global market, pharmaceuticals are developed and used worldwide, which creates a strong need for effective communication and accurate translations. The cost of professional pharmaceutical translation services is relatively small compared to the impact that inaccurate translations have on drug development. Mistakes in pharmaceutical translations can impact overall costs, can have clinical consequences for patients, can result in lawsuits, or even rejection of the product throughout the regulatory process.

When one mistake can cause serious problems, you need a translation services company you can trust…
Propio Language Services provides professional Pharmaceutical Translation Services in over 100 languages that help Pharmaceutical Industry clients achieve compliance and distribution.

Clinical Trials are Increasingly Conducted Outside the United States

While the United States is linguistically diverse, with over 350 languages spoken in U.S. homes, trends in the globalization of clinical research are also a factor in the importance of pharmaceutical translation services.

The FDA’s 2013 report, FDA Perspective on International Clinical Trials found that in 2007, over 6 out of 10 pivotal studies (more than 60%) submitted to the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) contained data from one or more foreign study sites. The report also shows an increase in clinical research sponsored by pharmaceutical & device companies to emerging regions. currently lists 326,612 studies with locations in all 50 States and in 209 countries.
