Medical Translations

Healthcare professionals have been trusting us for years to provide excellent translations of medical documents in 60+ languages. The most common medical documents needing translations include Medical records, Informed Consent forms, Clinical Trials, etc.

High-quality translation services can have a direct impact on creating an overall positive outcome for medical patients and providers. This can also help to ensure that accurate communication takes place so that safety is always a top priority.

Please note that we are only able to provide translations of medical content intended for the general public. Highly technical content intended for other healthcare professionals will need a specialist translator. If you have questions about the translation of your medical documents, please contact us and let us know the specifics of your documents.

As is the case with all translations, we take confidentiality very seriously and require all employees to sign an NDA as a condition of employment. If you would like us to provide our NDA (or sign yours), just let us know.

In the United States, everyone is entitled to access medical services designed to help stabilize their condition. Having access to medical translation services can help to overcome language barriers that might prevent patients from getting adequate care in a timely manner.

Medical Translation increases your odds for an accurate diagnosis

A medical professional will likely ask a series of questions to get a better idea of what might ail you. For instance, you may be asked if anything hurts, what you've eaten in the past 24 hours or if you have used any controlled substances in the recent past. It may be possible to have those questions translated into your native language so that you can answer them fully and honestly.

It may then be possible to translate medical documents back into the doctor's native language so that your responses can be used to create an accurate diagnosis. Test results, notes written by a medical professional and other information can also be translated into your native language.

The ability to engage with you makes it easier for a doctor to get enough information to make an accurate diagnosis. Making an accurate diagnosis enables a medical professional to create a treatment plan that may allow you to make a full recovery in a timely manner and without the need for invasive treatment.

You Can't Consent to Something You Don't Understand

A medical professional is ethically bound to provide patients with the potential risks and benefits of a given treatment plan. They are also required to provide alternative treatment options in the event that you don't want to get surgery, take a certain pill or abide by a doctor's original ideas.

The ability to translate documents such as implied consent forms means that you will be able to fully understand what your options are to treat a given condition. It also gives you the ability to express why you're against a certain treatment option, which may help medical providers tailor a plan that better meets your needs.

Medical Devices Should Be Easy to Use Properly

Improper use of a medical device could put your health and safety in jeopardy, and in some cases, it could put the health and safety of those in your household in jeopardy as well. Device manuals can be translated so that you understand how to put them together, how to use them and how to store them properly. If necessary, devices will come with instructions as to how they should be cleaned and what to do if a part breaks or has exhausted its useful life.

Satisfy Employer or Immigration Requirements

You may need to show proof of vaccination or other evidence that you are healthy enough to work or to enter the country. We can translate proof of vaccination forms or other paperwork that you need to satisfy requirements set by an employer, immigration agency or any other relevant organization. In addition, it may be possible to certify that these documents are legitimate, which can help to streamline the process of getting a job or gaining clearance to enter the United States.
