What is a summary of product characteristics?

The summary of product characteristics (SPC) is a document which provides a description of the chemical properties of the product or drug. The SPC must also outline the hazardous characteristics of the product, or drug both pharmacological and pharmaceutical. The SPC provides in-depth information about the usage of the product or the drug. The European Commission states that the drug companies submit the SPC in the pharmaceutical dossier for drug registration.

The need to translate summary of product characteristics

When a company manufactures or markets products or drugs across nations, they must include the SPC with each product. The European Union mandates that the SPC be provided in the primary language of the country in which the product or drug is sold. Hence, the SPC must be translated in the primary languages of all the countries in which the products or drugs are sold.

Why you should hire professional translators?

The summary of product characteristics contains essential information about the characteristics and the usage of the drug or the product. The SPC may be written in a complex language or may contain pharmacological or medical jargon. An untrained translator may miss out on vital information when translating an important document because of the lack of knowledge. Hence it is necessary to hire professional and trained pharma translators to translate SPCs.
