Language Management

Consistent meanings, consistent results 

Comprehension is key

Localization has always been a critical consideration in the development of new therapies and treatments. The shift towards more foreign trials and the proliferation of virtual trials continues to dramatically increase demand for accurate translations and localizations of all study documentation from enrollment through consent, scale management, and even supply stocking labels.

Poor translations can have drastic impacts on a trial if not executed properly – they can result in invalid or unusable data, rejection of submissions to ethics and regulatory authorities, retraction of copyright permissions, or extended timelines and unexpected costs.

Don’t risk your study by overlooking this critical step. When you partner with Signant Health, we ensure your study is fully localized and linguistically validated from end to end.
