Medical Translation Service

Translation of medical documents

In the medical world, quality translation is not a matter of luxury.
It can be crucial! Medicine is universal, but language is not. And without a full understanding of the medical terms, medical concepts and medical terminology involved, it is impossible to construct a complete medical translation that captures the universal meaning of the original medical text. The medical and pharmaceutical field is one of the sectors that requires the utmost rigour and expertise during the translation phase. Medical translation requires not only the qualities of a professional translator, but also a mastery and knowledge of the medical field, with all its specificities and subtleties.

Medical, pharmaceutical and technical translations

Our teams of medical translators are university educated professionals translating into their mother tongue, and are trained to answer your requests for medical translations in the most professional, conscientious, and optimal way possible. They are thus able to handle the translation of your medical, pharmaceutical and technical documents, such as translating descriptions of medical devices.

Important facts for the right medical translation:

Translating medical documents (Medical Translation) accurately requires a native or near-native, formal level of language proficiency, analytical capabilities, and a deep-rooted cultural knowledge in the source and target languages. A medical translator must have formal education in the source and target languages to a minimum of college level (ideally having received instruction in translation theory and practice), be an expert in the terminology of the subject matter, fully understand the source text, write correctly, and make use of highly specialised dictionaries. Professional medical translators also conduct terminology research to validate equivalents in the target language, particularly when translating into a language with several regional variations, and/or to understand a term in context.

The quality of a source document greatly affects that of the final translation.

If there are any confusing or poorly written passages, the final target language passage will be equally confusing unless the linguist seeks clarification or rephrases the passage.
