Healthcare Translation Services

What is a Medical Translation?

Medical translation is the adaptation of medical literature (technical documents, patient history, clinical drug information, illness worksheets, etc.) that’s required of healthcare providers for engaging with multilingual patients and stakeholders.

Medical texts are highly regulated. A medical translator must be a trained and certified professional who clearly understands the source and target languages, as well as the field of medicine involved. Medical translators adhere to the proper medical terminology throughout every document.

If you need accurate and detailed medical translations performed by world-class, certified language professionals, then you’re in the right place.

Medical Translator vs. Medical Interpreter

A medical translator works on adapting healthcare documents for clinical trials, drug labeling for pharmacies, instructions for medical devices, and other archives to an end language.

A medical interpreter, on the other hand, works with patients, helping them understand and be understood by healthcare providers such as nurses and doctors.

A translator handles written words, while an interpreter serves people. A translator can take time to accurately adapt each word, whereas an interpreter needs to be quick and instant on the tasks at hand. Especially for hospital interpreting, where the stakes are high, a professional medical interpreter needs to be incredibly qualified for the role.

Are Hospitals Required to Provide Language Services?

Yes, healthcare providers are required to provide medical translators and interpreters for patients in the United States whose primary language is not English, according to The Patient Protection Affordable Care Act.

The Plain Language Requirement and Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Requirement are two sections of the ACA that establish the importance of supplying clear and concise information, as well as the need to provide culturally appropriate messages to limited English proficiency patients.

This is why our healthcare translation services are not only an added value for your clinic or hospital, but also a necessity.
