Professional practices Elina Sellgren endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).

I specialise in medical, pharmaceutical and health care translations.

I am committed to lifelong learning and attend CPD courses regularly, e.g. by taking Open University courses in medicine, pharmacy and writing, taking courses through other venues, and by attending training events. I also read medical journals and literature regularly to keep up-to-date on news and current topics in the fields.

Examples of texts I translate:

- clinical trial-related texts: protocol synopses, ICFs, DSUR, SUSAR

- drug SPCs, package leaflets, labelling (EMA projects)

- regulatory correspondence

- patient questionnaires/interview guides (incl. validation)

- PROs

- patient/medical records

- adverse event reports

- medical market research questionnaires

- scientific journal articles

- books aimed at the general audience

- website texts.

I have also been part of linguistic validation projects in various roles as the lead linguist, forward translator, back-translator, reconciliator and reviewer in the process of harmonising patient assessment instruments.
