Acurit Medical Communications Pty Ltd

A fabulous communicator and a joy to work with

Are you looking to expand your company’s reach into China, the world’s second-largest pharma market?

Would you like to attract more Chinese clients, and deliver exceeding their expectations, so they keep coming back for more projects?

Is this the case: no one in your company speaks Mandarin, let alone English Chinese medical communications?

If so…

We can help you:

  • Find, secure and manage Chinese projects in pharma and nutrition through Chinese client-facing esp. medical publication manuscript writing and clinical trials
  • Do medical translations between English and Chinese

When you submit your translated dossier for a new drug approval or clinical trial application, the last thing you want is for it to be rejected because of poor translation quality.

Why Me?

Originally from China, I got a Biochemistry PhD degree in the US. I then worked in the pharma and nutrition industry in China for eight years. Now I live in Australia and have run Acurit since 2016.

Acurit serves clients globally.

When working with me, you have the ease of communicating with someone living in a Western country. Further, I interact with Chinese clients easily knowing ins and outs of the healthcare system there.

My clients often say I’m reliable and trustworthy, and I’m proud of the amazing relationships I’ve cultivated. Many of them have worked with me since Acurit started and more than 90% are returning clients. One of the things that makes me a terrific medical communicator is I deliver high-quality work on time every time, and always have proactive communications.

I have worked with many MedComms agencies, life sciences companies and CROs globally. I can help you as well.

If not now, when?
