What is Medical Translation?

Medical translation refers to converting texts related to pharmaceutical products, medical devices, healthcare, patient history, clinical drug information, technical and regulatory documents, etc., from one language into another, helping healthcare providers seamlessly engage with patients and stakeholders.

Medical translation services are best left to certified translators native to the target language who thoroughly understand the medical terminology. If you're searching for the most reliable medical translation services online, you've come to the right place. Wordspath brings together technically qualified translators to provide word-class translation services for healthcare professionals and organizations.

Medical Interpretation Services

Imagine a patient is in the clinic or hospital waiting to see a doctor or get medical treatment. Do you think he will have peace of mind if the physician and nurses discuss his condition and the specific intervention he will undergo in a foreign language? Not likely! Patients with no medical background already have trouble understanding the intricate and obscure technical terms in their native language. How do they receive information and ask questions about the recommended treatments with a communication gap in front of them? That's where a well-trained medical interpreter steps in.

Working with a technically qualified interpreter fluent in both languages means the patient fully understands his physical condition and the necessary procedures to undergo before he makes a well-considered decision. Using a certified medical interpreter is also beneficial to healthcare providers. Having a linguistically fluent interpreter by the patient's side, hospitals can ensure the patient is fully informed and agree to the terms in the informed consent to medical treatment, avoiding certain liabilities.

As one of the world's most trusted medical interpreter agencies, Wordspath strives to enable clear communication between healthcare providers and multilingual patients at critical times of need. Whether a certified medical translation by one call or a medical interpreter phone service, we quickly connect you with the right medical expert in your preferred language.

Medical Terminology Translation

Terminology accuracy is paramount to medical translation in all aspects of the healthcare field. Mistranslating medical terms and words relevant to the physical conditions and disease names will result in incorrect diagnoses and disastrous medical accidents, putting the patient’s health and life at risk.

At Wordspath, all medical translation projects are processed online on our proprietary translation management platform on which we manage and store the terminology. Before getting started, we will upload the existing glossary to our system so that all medical translations remain technically accurate and consistent, reducing turnaround time and costs for our customers.
