Healthcare translation FAQs

What are the benefits of accurate translation for medical documents?

Having medical documents properly translated could literally be a matter of life and death. Proper translation of medical and healthcare documents helps avoid error or confusion around vital information that has a real impact on people’s lives. Clients benefit from saving time and money and having genuine peace of mind if an expert medical translator does the job.

Why do medical businesses need translation services?

Medicine is a global industry that needs to be able to handle language barriers with complete precision, as even tiny inaccuracies can have potentially devastating consequences. Everything, from clinical trial protocol to instructions for medical equipment, must be translated perfectly, which is why medical businesses shouldn’t rely on automatic translation or unqualified translators.

What is it like to work with you?

Our team is both professional and approachable, so we’ll be a pleasure to deal with as well as providing you with accurate translations. We like to keep things simple: email us the documents you’d like translated and we will look them over then get back to you. Once we’ve agreed on a timeline, we’ll give you a quote and get to work.

What are certified medical translations?

Having a certified medical translation means that a document has been stamped with a further degree of authority than normal medical translations. An example of this might be if court proceedings request that medical documents are submitted as evidence. Our translation experts are able to provide certification as and when required.

How do medical translations ensure consistent growth?

Medicine is an international industry which means that global healthcare businesses need their materials to be translated into many different languages. Consistent worldwide growth can only be ensured by having everything translated at the right time, which means having a robust medical translation service at the ready.

Do you guarantee total accuracy?

We make sure all of our translations are precise, but we are well aware of the importance of making sure medical translations are completely correct every time. When it comes to health, even the most minor error in translation could have serious consequences. This is why we guarantee 100% accuracy when translating medical documents.
