The Growing Need For Medical Translation

6th Jun 2014

Over the last few decades, the medical sector has changed rapidly and the importance of the correct flow of information has become crucial.  Added to that, as immigrant communities are growing around the country, hospitals, clinics and health-care providers are increasingly confronted with language and cultural challenges that can discourage people from seeking care or lead to errors in diagnoses and treatment. As a result, medical translation has emerged as one of the most highly competitive fields.

Medical translation services are proving to be vital for patients from different countries. Translation of patients’ medical history and health records enable patients to obtain better diagnoses and then medical treatment.

In addition, most countries around the world require that literature and labelling associated with medical devices or pharmaceuticals sold to be translated into the national language(s).

The medical sector regularly deals with new terminology. Many medical researches, trials and searches are done in French and German speaking countries. Therefore a lot of the medical source literature is written either in French and German. Consequently, every new medical publication, clinical research report, device manual and psychological report needs to be translated.

Medical and pharmaceutical translation is a highly specialised discipline and it should only be carried out by suitably qualified professional translators.
