Description
This webinar has been updated to reflect current EU legislation and its impact on pharmaceutical translation. It will provide translators with a solid foundation for translating medical documentation relating to clinical trials.

This includes international standards, current EU legislation, regulatory bodies, an introduction to the clinical trial pipeline and other issues involving clinical trials, where clinical trials are currently being conducted and the various types of clinical trial documentation. The presenter will also present and discuss the common issues that may arise when translating each type of text, as well as relevant terminology that is often confused, such as "efficacy vs. efficiency" and "patient vs. subject."

Various strategies that translators at any stage in their careers can use to improve their consistency and accuracy when translating such documents will also be presented. Participants will receive a .pdf version of the presentation, as well as a resource handout.

Price discrepancyJun 21, 2016

I received e-mail of this training, which states $25. However, this website says "$29.99". I wonder why there is a difference. I hope it is $25.

Hello zamartinez and Kayoko,

Those that purchase a seat in advance may be able to pay an "early bird" or cheaper price, and those that confirm participation later or last minute, may likely get to pay a higher fee. In some training sessions a price increase based on the number of registrants may also apply, i.e. the first 15 registered pay one price, the next 10 pay a a slightly higher price etc.

Early payment is advised in order to secure participation and help reach the course minimum participation - unfortunately, courses may occasionally be cancelled or rescheduled, if the confirmed participation in advance is very low.

Hope this helps and clarifies.

My bests,
Helen
