Medical and Pharma language projects

Carrying out a heart transplant like Cape Town’s famous Christiaan Barnard is not something we’d be up to. But we do speak his language. By which we mean not only Afrikaans, but also specialist medical and pharmaceutical language.

We provide support to international pharmaceutical businesses, research institutes as well as medical and pharma marketing and communications agencies through our language projects.

We take on the translation of research result press releases and package inserts, transcription of expert interviews and medical congresses, and editing of medical studies in various fields of research for our medicine and pharma customers.

We’re well connected and work with your content in many different languages. Our recruitment management makes it possible!

Inexperienced individuals wouldn’t know their glucocorticosteroids from their glucose sensor when they’re transcribing your latest meeting. That’s why, for translations and edits, but also for transcriptions, we only use freelancers who are acquainted with the medical and pharma fields.

Of course, it’s a given that we only use native speakers to work on your texts.

We won’t tell anyone what research findings or studies you plan to publish next month. Our team in Cape Town and all our freelancers are bound by German data privacy laws. Your files, text and figures are safe with us. We promise!
