The next wave: understanding how IT developments are changing the future of medical translation

Date and time: 12:00-13:00, Saturday, 8 June, 2013
NOTE: This session has already been held

Room: B - Foz (90 Plateia)

Description:

Demand is exploding in the field of medical translation with the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and medical device sectors representing the second-largest market share in the industry. Despite fast-growing demand and higher volumes of translation services in both traditional and emerging markets, the life sciences vertical is set to face new challenges in an expanding geographic environment that has become increasingly regulated and quality-driven.

We will take a closer look at the trends currently driving the medical translation industry, including the recent push towards multilingual harmonization through controlled language and the implementation of common technological applications. Recent changes in the regulatory environment, transitions to e-documentation, and new approaches to terminology management as determinants of quality and consistency will also be explored.
