Welcome to Welocalize Life Sciences’ Global Communicator.

Patient-reported outcomes (PROs) provide valuable information that can impact the validity of a clinical trial. For this reason, PROs must undergo one of the most rigorous quality assurance processes: Linguistic Validation. Katrina Honer, a senior project manager in Irvine, California, shares why additional quality steps may be necessary.

We also introduce you to Jordi Aguila, a senior product manager located in Barcelona, Spain. He shares information on our Clinical Trial Portal and how the Translation Budgeting Tool benefits clients.

Our featured language is Czech. Find out about the Czech Republic’s recent addition of the short-form name Czechia, as well as the number of clinical studies currently underway.

Finally, read our tips for operating a smooth linguistic review and find out how to schedule a demo of our Clinical Trial Portal.

As always, thank you for reading Global Communicator.

Best regards,
