    Did you know that one of the translation jobs with the most responsibility is medical translation, and more specifically the translation of life sciences and health-related topics?

    Something as simple as a misplaced comma in the translation of a clinical trial protocol could cause significant delays in the acceptance of the study by the ethics committees.

    Too high a linguistic register in the translation of an informed consent document may mean that a patient cannot understand what they are consenting to.

    Choosing one preposition instead of another next to a verb in the translation of a medical contract may make the other party liable for the costs.

    These are just three examples of the many cases we encounter on a daily basis at Okodia Translation Services when performing medical translations. Medical reports, scientific articles on cardiology, instructions for use of medical devices, medicine package inserts, and other types of documentation for dentistry, veterinary medicine, biology, etc. These are extremely important texts in relation to:

    The health of your patients.

    Your reputation and your profits as a company, as you are liable for the content.

    Meeting submission deadlines and the chance of being accepted by the authorities in each country.

    The final cost of your projects.

    In order to offer you the best quality translations for all your life science documents, we go one step further and offer you a service that is both exclusive and extremely professional: Okomeds, our internal department dedicated exclusively to specialised medical translations:


    Translations for CROs: Contract Research Organisations

    If you are involved in research, you know that clinical research for the medical, pharmaceutical and veterinary sectors is essential. Without this work, the other life science sectors would not obtain the financial profits essential to achieve a key strategic position.

    Companies and organisations from different countries (including emerging countries) invest billions each year in researching new medicines and health products. This large international investment requires very high quality translations. A response that only a serious, established company with direct and proven experience in the field of health and medical translation can offer.

    Okomeds offers you accurate translations that meet all technical, terminological and quality requirements of the different health agencies, such as AMD, FDA, MHLW, PMDA, SFDA, etc.

    Feasibility studies, clinical biostatistics, analytical services, patient recruitment, development of medical devices… the list of your professional commitments is huge and so is the documentation that your organisation generates daily. Documentation so specialised that you need an advanced, complete and, of course, fast and efficient multilingual response.

    As a CRO, you are subject to the strictest quality standards. As a customer of Okomeds, you will receive the high quality that your international customers demand.

    In a single phrase: Okomeds is the perfect ally that will help you to profitably perform your internationalisation process.


    Medical sector

    As a medical professional, you have an ethical obligation to do all that you can for each and every one of your patients, and as the head of a life science company, you have an obligation to offer the best service to your customers, to your market. In the global market in which your company works, you need a professional, specialised and high quality translation of a large volume of documentation, for example: Clinical protocols, hospital records and reports, CRF (Case Report Forms), medical journals, patient logs, patient consent forms, technical papers, instructions for use, documentation related to good practices in health prevention, documentation for the registration of medicines, studies on new techniques, clinical trials, toxicology reports, abstracts and papers.
    Promotional material, applications for grants and permits, etc.

    Globalisation processes and strong competition from emerging countries require you to have a strong, professional and international image. How?

The technological advances of recent years have also radically changed the way work is done in this sector, and its organisational and procedural changes have led to the generation of a huge amount of specialised documentation; highly important texts that, in the global economic environment in which we live, require immediate translation into multiple languages:
