Backtranslation

Backtranslation – in other words translation back into the original language – is a way of checking the quality of a translation that has already been done. This is sometimes necessary over the course of a marketing authorisation procedure or in clinical studies.

This is how we proceed: A text with source language A and target language B has already been translated by us or by another translator. Now a translator translates this text from B back into the original source language A as literally as possible. The original text is then compared with the back-translated text, which reveals any inconsistencies that might be present.

If you require this kind of backtranslation, please get in touch with your personal project manager at medax.
