Medical & Pharmaceutical Translation

Translation is by far the most common and the most important type of linguistics services required by transnational companies. Patient information leaflets, certificates of analysis, and informed consent form are just an example of the documents circulation that has to be translated for successful marketing of products and successful conducting of clinical trials in Russian-speaking communities.

Translation Process — TEP-QA™ (Translation, Editing, Proofreading & Quality Assurance)

Unique algorithm for delivering error-free translation that allows eliminating all possible kind of errors and ensuring highest-level consistency and terminology accuracy.

Translation process includes a few crucial steps of rigorous control and quality assurance to guarantee highest possible accuracy and lack of any spelling, punctuation, and grammatical errors.

Provided below flow-chart shows translation process for a typical MS Word file, although it can also be used for any other file formats.


Abbreviations: QA: Quality Assurance; CAT: Computer Assisted Translation.

Provided above algorithm ensures highest-quality and error-free translation and/or editing with outmost consistency and terminology accuracy.

Terminology Management

I routinely create and maintain field- and client-specific glossaries in order to streamline the translation process and to ensure terminology accuracy and consistency. Depending on specific client’s requirements, client-provided glossaries could also be utilised.

Terminology management is performed using SDL MultiTerm 2014.
