Medical Translation Services

Medical Translation Services

Accurate translations for accurate treatment.

The health and safety of your patients depends upon accurate and caring communication. When treating those with limited English proficiency (LEP), the potential for miscommunication rises considerably. To ensure accurate medical record and document translations, provide the best possible care to all, and avoid harmful and costly mistakes, accurate medical translation from a specialized translator is imperative. Trust in your communication by engaging the services of seasoned medical translators with a focus on clarity, perception, and accuracy.

What We Offer

Our international team of translators can deliver medical translation between English and over 200 world languages. All of our translators are native speakers of the output language and highly trained experts with both the language skills and medical-specific knowledge required to fulfill all translation needs accurately, within your timeline, and to your formatting specifications. While we utilize the latest communication technologies, we believe it’s the human touch and attention to detail our people provide that truly sets us apart when providing medical translation services.

Medical Translation Services: Documents and Records

We provide medical translation services in medical facilities where translation or interpreting of medical professionals, medical documents, records, and more may be needed. Translated medical documents can provide very important things to a patient including informed consent.

Another area that medical translation or interpretation may be needed are for medical device companies. Medical devices are often shipped to other countries and need to be translated for patients and medical professionals. Our team comes with experience in translating for medical device manufacturers, pharmaceutical companies, and related areas in the medical field.
