Summary:Are you stumped by drug leaflets and packaging translations? Does the extensive time spent researching regulatory requirements and templates make translating these documents not profitable? We will review the essential regulatory requirements, terminology and templates necessary to accurately and efficiently translate these highly regulated documents.
Description
Translating drug leaflets, packaging and labelling is a delicate and highly regulated process. Language- and locale-specific templates and terminology dominate and conventions vary between languages and countries (questions vs. affirmations, for example). In this webinar, the final in this four-part series on medical translation, we will review the regulatory resources, references and templates to effectively translate drug leaflets, packaging and labelling. You will learn to effectively gather, evaluate, organise, interpret and present data based on the source language and corresponding target FDA/EMA regulations. You will become familiar with the steps of the translation, in-country review and post-marketing review processes and how to negotiate "untranslatables". Finally, we will build a set of terminology review resources and references to ensure that translating regulatory medical documents is less research-driven and more profitable.
Target audience
Translators already specialising in medical translation.
Translators considering crossing over into medical translation.
Medical translators interested in regulatory affairs.
