Back translation

For 100% peace of mind and to meet Quality Control requirements

We offer a full range of healthcare translation services, which means that we also offer back or reverse translations. A back translation involves taking a document translated into another language and translating it back into the original language. The purpose of this is to compare the documents and ensure accuracy and quality control.

The back translation should always be carried out by an independent translator, who has not seen the original source document.

Language isn’t an exact science, and a back translation will never be 100% exactly the same as your original text but it can help to identify ambiguities or errors.

Back translations are usually literal – to give the exact meaning of the translation. As a result, back translations are likely to read rather unnaturally.

Once you have your back translation, you can compare with the source text and look for any problems. These can be listed and raised with the translators to make any necessary changes to the actual translation.

Why do I need a back translation?

Not many clients will need back translations – typically pharmaceutical, clinical research, medical and associated companies. A back translation may be required to meet requirements of regulatory bodies.

Atlas Translations have provided a variety of services for Alzheimer’s Society, including the translation of our flagship information resource ‘Worried about your memory?’ into a variety of different languages, as well as into Braille for partially sighted. The service we have received is consistently to high standard, with staff going beyond the call of duty to fulfil our requirements. I will definitely be using them again, and would recommend them to anyone looking for top quality translation services.

You have been such a help and we can’t thank you enough. We’re getting an amazing response. It is quite a challenge, but we wouldn’t be making our deadlines without your assistance. Many many thanks.

Atlas completed the work within our time frame and the proofreading service gave us the extra peace of mind that the translations were accurate and of quality.

It’s tough when you have to rely on a company and trust that the translations are correct but with Atlas, we can rest assured that the language, tone, and style of translation is suitable for our audiences.
