On the Front Line of Life Sciences Translation

On the Front Line of Life Sciences Translation

Life Science fields are dynamic, important, and most definitely global. But one quick look at a lab report or life science product patent reveals the translation challenge: these highly specialized texts can be incomprehensible even in one’s own native language. It would seem that a multilingual scientist or physician is needed to accurately translate them.

In fact Skrivanek offers a solution even better than that. Our specialized linguists have studied and worked in life sciences field for years so they are able to grasp every aspect of the life science texts they translate. They are not only able to understand life science terminology and concepts; they are also expert communicators capable of translating every critical bit of information clearly into your target languages.

Skrivanek’s experience partnering with major life science entities is deep. We are leaders in the field of life sciences translation, and pride ourselves on the range of experience we have accrued with companies around the world. The partial list of our achievements below is a humbling peek into the sophisticated regulatory and communication requirements that life science entities must prepare for.

Veterinary Medicine texts and forms for Clinical Research, Regulatory Affairs, and Medical Devices – We’ve translated for Randox Laboratories, Bioveta, Translation Center for the Bodies of the EU, Bioveta, and Abbott ANI.

We welcome the opportunity to share the translation and quality assurance processes we have developed and perfected. It’s particularly gratifying to do so for a field defined by precision, innovation, and global networking.
