Linguistic Validation

Clinical research and patient studies rely on accurate and meaningful data for a successful market entry. Our linguistic validation process is not only based on the standard ISPOR methodology and best-in-class translation process, but it also utilizes a multidisciplinary approach. LUZ’s overall process is influenced by sociolinguistics, information design sciences, cross-cultural psychology, and medical sociology, all of which benefit our insights into multilingual, multi-country studies.

Among other focus areas, we have conducted linguistic validation projects related to the following medical conditions: cancer, central nervous system and neurology, allergy/immunology, behavioral health, dermatology, endocrinology, gastro-intestinal, infectious diseases, men’s health, gynecology and women’s health, oncology, hematology, pediatrics, renal, reproductive health, arthritis and rheumatology, smoking cessation, and urology.
