Welcome to Welocalize Life Sciences’ Global Communicator.

Advances in drug and device development are possible because of the participation of clinical research volunteers. However, nearly 40% of all clinical trials never get off the ground due to lack of participation. In this issue, we share advancements in technology and tools for increasing patient recruitment and retention in clinical trials.

Our language focus for this issue is Portuguese. Our team has compiled numerous Portuguese language and clinical research industry data to help you on your global journey. We also introduce you to Silvie Peric, Quality and Training Manager at Welocalize Life Sciences, update you on events our team is attending this fall, and share tips for accelerating the global e-discovery process.

As always, thank you for reading Global Communicator. Please follow us on Twitter for daily updates related to the life sciences and language services industries.

Best regards,
