Linguistic Validation

Linguistic Validation

At TransPerfect, we understand the complex and increasingly regulated process of adapting English-language PRO instruments for use in global research studies. By keeping abreast of the latest guidance on linguistic validation methodology, our specialized linguistic validation team guarantees that our clients employ a protocol that is at the industry’s forefront.

Coordinating over 100 linguistic validation projects annually, our linguistic validation team is comprised of professionals with expertise in a variety of therapeutic areas, including CNS, Cardiovascular Diseases, Psychiatry/Psychology, General QoL, Gastroenterology, Oncology, Dermatology, and respiratory disease. Projects typically involve 15-30 countries and utilize variations on the ISPOR-compliant linguistic validation methodology.

Our benefits:

  • Quality: Each of our certified linguists has extensive experience translating in the pharmacoeconomics, health economics, and outcomes research fields, and your documents are always handled by experts in your specific subject area. In addition, our ISO 9001:2008 and EN 15038:2006 certified quality management system means that all linguistic validation projects follow the industry’s most stringent guidelines for quality assurance and risk management.
  • Speed: We recognize that linguistic validation is a time-consuming endeavor and that shaving even a single week off the process can mean literally millions of dollars in savings. To that end, we’re proud to offer turnaround times that average 25% faster than our competitors’, while still upholding the highest level of quality.
  • Flexibility: While our ISPOR-compliant process is robust and accounts for a wide range of scenarios, we recognize the limitations of applying a “one size fits all” approach—which is why we seek your input on every project. We’ll then modify our standard process to create a collaborative and truly comprehensive solution that fits you perfectly—right out of the box.
