Scientific and technical translation
Translator L&F Scientific Division
Translator L&F’s Scientific Division regularly translates a wide variety of documents across a range of disciplines. Its team of scientific and technical translators has experience with many disciplines (including medicine, pharmaceuticals, chemistry, biotechnology and various fields of engineering). Its clients include public institutions and chemical, pharmaceutical, biomedical and biotechnology companies.
In the field of medicine, we translate popular science articles on advances in disciplines such as neurology, oncology and clinical microbiology for publication in journals, forums and specialist websites, as well as case reports and hospital medical reports. We also regularly translate conference reports on research results. Our thorough command of clinical trial procedures enables us to translate clinical trial protocols, patient information and consent forms. Medical device manufacturers and suppliers regularly use our services for the translation of user manuals, brochures and all kinds of informational and technical material on medical, diagnostic and treatment equipment.
In the pharmaceutical field, our translators have ample experience in translating documents such as pharmaceutical marketing materials for sales force training and marketing authorisation dossiers, including standard documents such as common technical documents (CTD) and summaries of product characteristics (SPC). We also translate pharmaceutical product and process patents, which, like sponsorship and medical supply agreements, call for a combination of legal and chemical or medical knowledge. Other documents translated include general documents for submission to health authorities to obtain reimbursement authorisation, market studies, questionnaires and physician interviews for brand positioning purposes.
We handle documents produced by diverse multilateral institutions, universities and international cooperation agencies concerning the negotiation of multilateral agreements, the preparation of industry standards or regulations, and the application of common policies and international guidelines. We can also handle other documents of a legal nature that our clients see fit to entrust to our company for translation, all of which are carefully analysed and documented before being translated.
