What is the need for translating package inserts?

More and more pharmaceutical companies have started to manufacture and market their products across many countries. The major languages spoken and understood differs in different countries. For example, while English is the primary language for communication in India, the primary language of communication in France is French. If a French company were to market its medicines in India, then their package inserts and labels would have to undergo French to English translation. Similarly, if an Indian company were to cater to the French drug market, the package inserts and labels would have to be translated from English to French.

Why employ professionals to translate package inserts and labels?

Package inserts and labels contain vital information about the drug contained in the package. Hence, it is very important that after translation, the package inserts and the labels convey the same information. When translated by non-professional online translators, there are chances that some information may not effectively convey the same meaning in another language. Hence, it is very important to hire professionals to translate package inserts and labels.
