    Description
    Clinical trial documentation translation is increasingly growing in popularity.

    Therefore, it is absolutely essential for translators, especially those with no formal clinical training or experience, to have a solid understanding of the relevant concepts and terminology to provide an accurate translation of such documentation in their native language(s). The Summary of Product Characteristics is a definitive description of a medicinal product’s properties and uses, including its chemical composition, indications and contraindications, pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetic properties, pharmaceutical form. This document is required by the European Commission before any medicinal product can receive marketing authorization.

    This webinar will present the fundamental concepts and terminology for successfully translating a Summary of Product Characteristics, as well as relevant translation strategies. The course materials include a pdf version of the PowerPoint presentation and a handout.
