Informed Consent Forms Translated Right
Keeping patients clearly informed of the risks and benefits of medical treatments or new drug tests in order to obtain their informed consent is not only important for preventing potential malpractice claims but is required by law. When a patient is someone who doesn’t speak or understands English, the consent forms must be accurately translated into the patient’s own language in order to ensure unambiguous physician-patient communication and comply with regulatory requirements. This is why you need Stepes. We provide high quality informed consent translation services in over 100 languages, helping the world’s leading healthcare organizations and pharmaceutical companies to better meet their multilingual patient care needs.
Quality patient consent form translation requires more than linguistic knowledge; it also necessitates deep life sciences knowledge and medical subject matter expertise for the related healthcare fields. Poorly translated consent forms can lead to ‘uninformed’ decisions by the patient, resulting in potential malpractice lawsuits. Stepes is an ISO 13485:2016 certified translation company employing thousands of professional, native medical translators who are supported by our industry leading medical terminology management solutions. Our next-gen cloud translation technologies allow Stepes to deliver quality informed content translations fast.

Informed Consent Translation for Clinical Trials
The US FDA mandates that pharmaceutical or CRO companies conducting human clinical trials for new drugs must inform participating patients of possible risks and side effects of the medicine or treatment, and obtain their informed consent in advance. For international patients who don’t speak English, informed consent forms must be accurately translated to target foreign languages. This is why you need Stepes, the language industry leader for end-to-end clinical trial translation services.

Informed Consent Interpretation Services
Physicians or other medical care providers must communicate with their patients about the benefits, risks, and alternative treatments before necessary medical procedures are performed. Often times, this requires a series of questions and answers between the physician and the patient. For international patients speaking foreign languages, medical interpreters are needed to ensure concise doctor-patient communications in order to obtain informed written consent from the patient. Stepes provides both over the phone (OTP) or in-person interpretation services using our large team of certified medical interpreters. Our modern, revolutionary interpretation technologies make it easy for health care organizations to book interpreter services online.

Patient Consent Form Formatting
Do you need multilingual DTP (desktop publishing) services for your patient consent forms? Once translated, the foreign language text must be formatted to ensure professional layout so the questions and risk descriptions can be easily understood. Poorly formatted consent forms can cause confusion, leading to incorrect answers to be supplied, which may result in potential medical claims later on. Stepes provides expert DTP services for a variety of file formats such as MS Word, PowerPoint, Adobe InDesign, and PDF. We have an excellent team of desktop publishers who’re intimately familiar with international typographic conventions and rules. Just upload your consent forms to obtain an instant translation and DTP quote.
