Linguistic Validation and Review Services

The need to translate patient questionnaires for use in multiple languages and geographical regions has grown exponentially over the past years. One of the reasons for this change is the necessity to comply with the new FDA and EMEA regulatory guidelines for using Patient Reported Outcome (PRO).

Being at the forefront of this process, ANT offers fully compliant linguistic validation services. The objective of our linguistic validation services is to create linguistically valid translations which are both conceptually and culturally equivalent to the original document. We do that while ensuring that you meet deadlines, shorten time-to-market, mitigate risk and are in full compliance with regulatory authority requirements.

Our network of country-based linguistic reviewers specialize in life sciences and process a wide range of health topics in many languages. They are all qualified linguists who will ensure that the language and terminology used are correct and consistent, and can be used in another culture. Their independent reviews will complement the regular translations, editing and proofreading tasks.

If you need assistance for developing PRO strategies, to satisfy regulatory or reimbursement needs, ANT can help! Being aware that each project is unique and each client has specific requirements, we offer highly customized solutions, based on preliminary assessment of your specific needs. We will adjust our linguistic validation process in accordance with the guidelines developed for translation and cultural adaptation of PRO instruments, as recommended by the FDA, EMEA and ISPOR.

Some of the Patient Reported Outcomes (PRO) instruments we provide linguistic services for include:
- General Health Perceptions
- Health-Related Quality of Life Measurements (HRQoL)
- Patient Diaries
- Symptom Checklists
- Visual Analogue Scale (VAS)
- Questionnaires
