WHY TRANSLATION MATTERS for the
When it comes to sensitive and complex medical information, not only is attention to detail essential, but accuracy can be a significant matter of life or death. With resources, technologies, techniques, and medical procedures constantly evolving, experienced language professionals who specialize in the medical field and its many corresponding branches/specialties are vital to the overall quality and accuracy of healthcare-related translation. Poor-quality translations can result in serious errors, mistakes, and omissions, leading to potentially life-threatening situations and legal proceedings for the parties involved.
While possible content types within the industry vary widely, some common documents and materials we frequently translate and localize include the following:
• Brochures and pamphlets
• Business cards
• Clinical studies/trials
• Complaint forms/surveys
• Discharge instructions
• Doctor's notes
• Health and safety sheets
• Informed consent documents
• Insurance forms and claims
• Intake forms with clinical consequences
• Maintenance manuals
• Market authorizations
• Medical journal articles
• Medical tests and reports
• Medication labels or instructions
• Newspaper articles
• Notices of free language assistance
• Notices of eligibility criteria for services
• PowerPoint slides/presentations
• Product data sheets
• Referral forms or notes
• Repair or user manuals/software information
• Technical data sheets
+ any other medical documents!
Translations may be accompanied by a Translation Accuracy Certificate,
notarized, or sworn.
