Language Scientific and Ethical GmbH Announce Partnership for Translation of Endpoint Adjudication Software

Language Scientific is proud to announce a new partnership with Switzerland based Ethical GmbH for translation services, enabling sponsors and clinical research organizations to manage endpoint adjudication alongside translation of event documentation within an integrated cloud solution.

Language Scientific, Inc., the leading clinical translation company, is pleased to announce a new innovative partnership with Ethical GmbH, the premier independent provider of Endpoint Adjudication Software Services. The partnership will enable sponsors and clinical research organizations conducting multicenter global clinical trials to manage endpoint adjudication together with the translation of event documentation in one integrated cloud solution.

Clinical endpoints assessment and adjudication is crucial for reducing patients’ risks and biases related to multi-center studies with subjective or image-based endpoints. The Ethical eAdjudication ® software provides the study staff a centralized online repository to manage the event information and to track the assessments procedures in a GxP environment. But in many cases event documentation is only available in languages other than English or in a mix of languages, and needs to be translated before it the endpoint can be properly assessed by all members of the Clinical Endpoint Committee. Now study staff can request translation, track different stages of the translation process in real time, receive delivery status, and monitor translation costs all within Ethical eAdjudication ® solution. By integrating the adjudication and translation processes clients reduce costs, speed up the process, and mitigate the possibility of misidentifying or misfiling translations.

Ethical GmbH selected Language Scientific as its translation partner because of their deep experience and highest quality reputation in clinical translation. Language Scientific has over 15 years of experience providing clinical translation services to customers such as Amgen, Cubist Pharmaceuticals (Merck), Eli Lilly, Intercept Pharmaceuticals, Novo Nordisk and Roche. They specialize in high quality expedited translation of Adverse Event and case source documents. Often these types of documents contain illegible handwritten notes by physicians, and have highly specialized vocabulary targeted at other clinicians. Language Scientific employs translators who are M.D.s expert at translating materials written by other doctors and working with documents that may be either poorly scanned or handwritten. Throughout the translation process, Language Scientific takes these handwritten or typed clinical documents and recreates them in an electronic format. To meet regulatory compliance an additional service of redacting patient identifying information from source documents is also completed during the translation stage.

“At Language Scientific, we have developed unique partnerships with Clinical Research Organizations, that have enabled us to create a successful Endpoint Adjudication translations practice” says LS CEO Sharon Blank. “We are able to leverage our native speaking medical professional linguists to provide the highest quality translation for our clinical partners. I believe we are in an excellent position to provide great value to Ethical GmbH and their customers.”

“Due to the gravity of consequence of an incorrect translation in a clinical trial, I am thrilled to be able to offer our clients the services of a highly specialized company such as Language Scientific, that puts the high quality of their translations first and foremost” says Mimmo Garibbo Director at Ethical GmbH. “We understand the importance of tracking every stage during the Endpoint Adjudication process and this partnership will make tracking translation easier than ever before.”
