Your medical translation project needs the best medical translators to ensure maximum accuracy. After all, medical communications often make the difference between life and death.

General translators, although highly skilled, can't handle every type of content. When it comes to medical and healthcare translation, you need a translation specialist with medical expertise.

What's so difficult

about translating medical content?

Medical language is a language all its own. If you're a healthcare professional, you know this well.

If you don't work in the medical field, you've no doubt visited a doctor at least once in your life. You've probably wondered at a few of the words your doctor or nurse used when discussing your health concerns with you.

Although healthcare professionals try to use common terms when speaking directly with patients, there sometimes isn't any good "translation." And among themselves, medical professionals stick to technical terminology for clarity.

If you think your medical translation project can be handled by a general translator, consider this sample list of medical terms and their everyday equivalents:

  • Febrile = feverish

  • Hemorrhage = bleed = hemorrhage

  • Myocardial infarction = heart attack

  • Pruritis = itching

  • Radiograph = x-ray

  • Sutures = stitches

Note that these medical words must be understood by the translator in their native language as well as the language they're translating from. In other words, medical translators must understand two sets of medical terminology! In rare cases, the translator may be asked to translate jargon into everyday terms.

Examples of medical content to be translated

Medical translation services do, of course, handle all the reports that go into a patient's chart. These include patient histories, surgical reports, discharge instructions, and so on.

However, many other medical documents and types of medical content exist. Examples are:

  • Letters between primary care physicians and specialists

  • Instructions for using surgical equipment

  • Pharmacy communications and reports

  • Medical information used in a legal case

  • And much more

With people living longer, the healthcare industry is booming. There's no end to the applications for medical translation.

More uses for medical translation services

It makes sense to use a specialized translator for official medical documents. But there are many other reasons to seek medical translators.

For example, you may want to have your clinic or hospital website translated into a language that's commonly spoken by local immigrants or tourists.

But remember: medical translation isn't just for doctors. There are many other cases where clients need medical content translated. Here are some examples:

  • A medical writer wants their article translated into another language.

  • A medical student wants to translate foreign resource materials into their own language.

  • An attorney needs a patient's medical records translated for a worker's compensation case.

  • A health department wishes to provide educational materials to all the major language groups in its city.

  • A factory is translating its health and safety signage.

All of these are cases where medical translation services are needed.
