Pharmacy Consulting were asked by a UK pharmacy magazine to edit and anglicise a series of training modules bought overseas for use in the UK community pharmacy market. The language to be used needed to be natural English and the practical examples quoted within the modules needed to be changed to reflect UK legislation and UK best practice whilst also appealing to pharmacy staff as real-world situations.
The Pharmacy Consulting approach
A timetable was negotiated with the customer over when each module would arrive and when it needed to be edited and returned by. The language used in the modules needed to be changed to reflect natural English, and the consultant’s pharmacy practice experience had to be used to replace the practical examples from the source country with parallel practical examples from UK practice. Where there was any doubt, practice examples were checked out with community pharmacists.
The customer gained experienced valuable editorial input into a large volume of training material in a relatively short time, allowing the purchased material to be confidently sold into the UK market at the earliest opportunity, knowing that the material would have full relevance to the UK market
