Medical translation refers to specialist translation services for organisations and businesses operating in the medical and pharmaceutical industries. These translation services use translators with specialist knowledge and extensive experience in the field, ensuring translations that are accurate and technically sound. In an industry that makes a significant contribution to the global economy and to the lives of countless humans, it’s of paramount importance that communication is carried out to the highest standard.
Our medical translation services cover several areas, and for each we require relevant underlying expertise from our team of translators. The areas we cover are pharmaceutical translation, medical device translation, clinical trials translation, and biotech translation. If you have a query about whether our medical translation services are a good fit for your needs, get in touch. We’ll be happy to clarify.
To translate medical documents to the required standard we would advise against automatic translation tools like Google Translate and similar. While these tools are becoming continually more sophisticated, they lack the ability to capture the level of nuance and technical accuracy required for translations in this industry.
Instead, we recommend commissioning the services of a specialist medical translation agency. Working with qualified professionals will ensure an adequate level of technical knowledge and experience in the field, ideally demonstrated by case studies outlining similar projects. Working with specialists will also give you access to their knowledge of medical terminology in the source and target languages, as well as their understanding of the ethical aspects of the source material, all relevant regulations, and confidentiality requirements.
The types of material translated in medical translation projects can vary significantly depending on the organisation commissioning the services. The list below should give an idea of the type of projects we have worked on in this industry:
Translators facilitate effective communication between myriad parties in a healthcare context. Between patients and healthcare providers, for instance: helping the latter to explain diagnoses, treatment plans, and so on. Or between researchers and publishers of academic materials: crucial in broadening our understanding and building the body of research which future generations are able to draw upon. Medical and pharmaceutical companies must produce significant amounts of marketing material to raise awareness of their products overseas, which must be translated for maximum impact.
While translation facilitates communication and collaboration in any field, its contributions are of especial importance in a medical context
The most important consideration for medical translation is ensuring that the translator(s) involved in the project has the level of understanding required to achieve an accurate and technically correct translation. This ensures compliance with regulations, patient safety, and adherence to legal and ethical standards.
When you work with The Translation People, your dedicated account manager will oversee the process and ensure best practice is maintained at every step of the project.
There are several challenges in healthcare translation, some of which we’ve outlined below:
The price you’ll pay for medical translation services depends on the scale of the project, the combination of services you require, the complexity of the translation, and several other factors. We take the information you provide with your initial inquiry and use this to create a tailored quote, because we feel that a bespoke price is fairer than a one-size-fits-all rate.
