Clinical and Medical Research

Many small to mid-sized life science firms work with contract research organizations (CROs) to handle the implementation of overseas trials. While the CRO may be able to include translation as an add-on service, that process can be slow and opaque. ION’s clients know they can call on us for an immediate response to urgent needs, or as an extra layer of QA to support the activities of the CRO.

Our services include accurate and compliant translations covering a wide range of clinical and regulatory documentation, such as:

  • Clinical trial protocols and synopses

  • Clinical study reports (CSRs)

  • Investigator brochures (IBs)

  • Informed consent forms (ICFs)

  • Patient information sheets (PISs)

  • Patient information leaflets (PILs)

  • Trial site contracts

  • Questionnaires and quality of life (QoL) measures
