A clinical study is a form of medical research conducted on human participants to evaluate the efficacy and safety of a medical treatment, such as a drug, therapy, device or surgical procedure. Clinical studies are essential to testing new treatments for patients, improving existing therapies, understanding diseases and medical conditions, and assessing the side effects and risks associated with various medical treatments. Clinical studies can be classified into several categories, including:

Observational studies

These studies simply observe participants (or patients) without active involvement. They may include cohort and case-control studies.

Randomized controlled trials (RCTs)

These are studies in which participants (or patients) are randomly assigned to different groups, one receiving the treatment under study and the other serving as a control group. These trials are considered the gold standard for evaluating the efficacy of medical treatments.

Observational cohort studies

These studies follow a group of people with certain characteristics or a common risk factor over a defined period of time to study the relationships between these characteristics or risk factors and medical outcomes.

Phase I-IV clinical trials

These are divided into phases, ranging from the first stage of testing on a small number of participants to assess safety (phase I) to phase IV, which involves monitoring the long-term use and large-scale effects of a treatment once it has been approved for routine use. Studies may be conducted in healthcare facilities, medical research centers or academic institutions, and are governed by strict protocols defining study objectives, participant inclusion and exclusion criteria, data collection methods, safety and efficacy assessments, and the ethical and regulatory processes to be followed.

Translating a clinical study into the target language (English, French, Chinese, Russian, etc.) makes research results accessible to an international audience and facilitates collaboration between researchers and practitioners worldwide. This is vital to ensuring the effective dissemination of medical knowledge and compliance with regulatory requirements in different countries.

The translation of a clinical study must be carried out by specialized, professional translators with expertise in the medical field and in-depth knowledge of the terminology used. It must also meet standards of quality, accuracy and terminological consistency.

The essential parts of a clinical study to be translated include the study protocol, informed consent forms, questionnaires and results reports. Depending on regulations and publication practices, other texts such as abstracts, articles and presentations may also need to be translated.

Yes, in addition to precise translations of specific terms, it is important to take into account linguistic and cultural nuances to ensure that the translated text is understood and acceptable in different parts of the world.

The biggest challenge is the level of complexity of the terminology used in these sorts of documents because terminological consistency must be maintained between different documents and languages. Two other major challenges are the strict deadlines imposed and complying with regulatory requirements in multiple languages.

To guarantee translation quality, we only work with specialized professional translators, carry out extensive proofreading and linguistic checks, and use quality and terminology management tools.

The applicable processes, standards and guidelines include Good Translation Practice (GTP), Good Clinical Practice (GCP), the guidelines of the International Council for Harmonization of Technical Requirements for Pharmaceuticals for Human Use (ICH), and the specific requirements of local regulatory authorities.

These questions are a good starting point to address the main concerns associated with translating a clinical study. It is important to consult experts in medical translation and to comply with applicable standards and regulations (ISO) when translating documents.
