A Translator’s Guide to the Drug Discovery Industry

April 27, 2011

The discovery and development of new drugs is a highly technical process with its own jargon. Even an experienced translator with a scientific background can have difficulty in understanding this jargon and its correct usage in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries.

This webinar focuses on some key areas of interest to pharmaceutical translators, including biological drugs that translators will increasingly encounter in regulatory documentation.

What Will You Learn?

  • Nomenclature used in drug development
  • Clinical trials and regulatory affairs
  • New biological drugs entering the market
