The role of a scientist is not only to conduct tests and analyze results, but also to communicate ideas and enrich themselves with new information. Sometimes this information may be in a language unfamiliar to the scientist and he or she must then rely on the services of a translator to fulfill their role as a scientist. This Senior Individualized Project was a practical internship in translation, which provided the necessary final step for many scientists. A variety of materials were translated from German to English with one major project involving guidelines for bioavailability studies. Bioavailability is defined as the rate and extent to which a drug and/or its active ingredient reach the systemic circulation. Bioavailability can be influenced by many factors, including food and/or fluid intake. Investigations of the influences of these types of factors on bioavailability are the basis for conducting bioavailability studies.
