  • Thursday, September 20, 2018

This webinar will discuss the process of translation and cultural adaptation to support eCOA implementation on a global scale.

While translation and cultural adaptation are time-intensive and require domain expertise, there are emerging best practices that not only save time, but also eliminate unnecessary work and reduce risk of error and timeline delays. YPrime and TransPerfect present recommendations for significant efficiency gains during translations and operational advice for a smooth implementation of eCOA studies. Discussion includes case studies and metrics.
