Welcome to Welocalize Life Sciences’ Global Communicator.

Patient recruitment is an ongoing challenge for clinical studies. In fact, 11% of sites don’t recruit a single patient into a trial. In this issue, we share information about our participation at next month’s PCT Europe, which has an entire track dedicated to patient recruitment and retention. We also provide an overview of our DIA Annual Canadian Meeting presentation on how digital tools and technology are shifting the clinical research landscape.

The language focus for this issue is Spanish. Our native language speakers and production experts at Welocalize Life Sciences offer Spanish translation and DTP tips to consider—from marketing to the various Spanish dialects. Our employee focus is Marta Motta, Director of Client Solutions at Welocalize Life Sciences and recent DIA presenter. Finally, learn how language and culture can impact the feelings associated with colors.

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.
