Description
During this webinar, the presenter and participants will discuss, analyze and translate a variety of clinical trial/pharmaceutical texts. Issues relating to such documents will be presented, including the use of passive vs. active voice, future vs. present tense, verb phrase vs. noun phrase and the translation of impersonal constructions. Strategies will also be presented to enable translators to produce better translations of such documents. The presenter will also discuss resources specific to the German --> English language combination that are very useful in translating such documentation.


Here is some feedback from others on this course's trainer:

"I have been doing translations of ICF and Subject Information documents regularly for the past year. For me, the webinar was still informative and provided some Internet resources that I was not yet aware of. The webinar also confirmed my approach to the work and the translations I have produced. Some of the translation examples underlined the importance of finding out the client's translation preferences.-"
