    Professional medical, pharmaceutical, and clinical translation services fall within the broader scope of scientific translations. This specialized sector requires specific skills and knowledge of scientific and healthcare language and terminology, as well as appropriate software.

    Translating scientific and medical documents containing critical health information requires precision. There’s no room for incorrect language interpretation. So it’s essential to rely on not just human translation by native translators in the target language but also industry-specific technology tools. Finally, our expert health professionals with years of experience in health care provide review and approval of translations.

    Clinical research work, articles, and large documents are calculated at a flat rate. These documents are very different from individual medical certificate translations.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What is the difference between a medical translator and a medical interpreter?

    Each service targets a specific use case. Medical translation services convert medical documents from one language to other languages. For example, records, research results, and medical certificate translation.

    Medical interpretation services are different. A medical interpreter translates spoken language in real time, for example, during medical appointments. They also provide on-demand language access services, interpreting for limited English proficiency (LEP) patients. Typically, highly qualified interpreters offer either in-person or video remote interpretation services.

    How do I choose the right medical translator for my needs?

    Check for relevant experience in providing medical translation services within the specific medical field you need. Look at their reputation – it can tell you a lot. Read reviews and ask for references to confirm their track record for accurate and reliable translations. Finally, ask about their confidentiality policies and practices.

    Many companies providing services for healthcare providers, pharmaceutical companies, and other health sector clients have bilingual staff such as doctors or pharmacists.

    Can you translate a medical device user guide?

    Yes, our translation and localization service guarantees the accuracy and precision of all documents used in the healthcare industry. We accurately translate medical terms to ensure medical device manuals comply with relevant international regulatory standards. We work with clients in the healthcare, biotech, and pharmaceutical industries.
