All Types of Medical Documents Translated

Medical translation services specialize in translating various medicine-related texts, including technical, regulatory, clinical, and marketing documentation in the medical field.

Medical translation services are necessary to ensure that clinicians and patients can provide relevant medical information, understand how to use medical devices, and use pharmaceutical drugs correctly.

When there’s a language barrier between patients and doctors, having translated medical documents available is extremely important to ensure that the patient gets the best care possible.

We Translate Medical Documents

There are also often legal reasons to hire medical translation services. For example, several EU directives concerning medicines, medical records, and medical devices, including in vitro diagnostic tests and implantable medical devices, legally mandate that certain information be available to users.

This information must be translated into the official languages of the countries where the product is sold. The product can’t be legally sold if the information isn’t translated.

Over a Decade of Serving Life Sciences Clients

Medical translation presents several unique challenges, meaning that translation expertise alone is often insufficient to deliver an accurate translation.

For example, medical documents frequently use specialized terminology and newly developed concepts that may not even exist in the target language. As the medical field is inherently broad, medical translators need expertise and experience in the sub-discipline or knowledge area to which a document pertains.

We have more than a decade of experience operating in this field, so you know you can rely on us for accurate medical translation services.

Certified Medical Translation Services: Translation Accuracy

Translators also must be able to tailor the text to the audience, which requires a nuanced understanding of cultural norms and language use. While a clinical trial protocol should include precise scientific terms, an informed consent form (ICF) should include everyday terms and language that the subject will understand.

Consistency in Quality

Consistency is also key; translators must maintain this terminology throughout the document if a scientific term is being used for a medical condition, as opposed to a colloquial one. Moreover, as with any translation, the medical translation must be culturally sensitive and adapted to reflect cultural values.

Types of Medical Translation

Different companies and organizations rely on high-quality translations when expanding into new markets or serving diverse consumer or patient groups, including pharmaceutical companies, biotechnology companies, medical device companies, research universities, and hospitals.

Medical Translators: Lifes at Stake

Surgery Room Doctors

No Room for Error

Got a medical translation project? The bottom line is there is no room for error in medical translation. A failure to use proper medical terminology in surgical instructions or an inability to render pharmaceutical dosage instructions in clear and concise language might be a life-threatening mistake. For your projects, make sure to use only certified medical translators.

Because of many of these documents medical translation requires a particular skill set because of many of these documents’ life or death nature. A high-quality medical translation requires linguistic mastery with medical expertise to ensure that medical terms are translated and used appropriately and that highly complex medical ideas are rendered logically and clearly.

Translation for Life Sciences

Accurate translation in Life Sciences is a matter of severe importance. Since medicine involves the health and safety of hundreds of thousands of people, it is vital to use a translation service that is experienced and knowledgeable in documents and terminology typical of the life sciences industry. Mistakes in this translation can prove costly to your patients and your company, which is why you need a company specializing in the areas of expertise related to Life Sciences.

In the translation industry, companies in the life science category are huge providers of the business. They tend to spend up to $200,000 on translation annually since it is such an important part of their business (Common Sense Advisory).

Companies in the life science industry have very high standards because they must communicate complex concepts with absolute accuracy and precision. Sometimes, there is no single word for a specific machine or procedure in the target language.

Additionally, life science companies that seek out language service providers require that the provider is familiar with the Medical Devices Directive.

Without that familiarity, it’s too easy to confuse important medical terms that could mean the difference between life and death when applied to a surgical or technical situation. Life science translations are not easy, which is why they require a translation service that is knowledgeable and reliable.

Clients That Use our Life Science Translations

Some of the companies we serve with quality medical translation services:

  • Pharmaceutical companies
  • Medical device manufacturers
  • Biotechnology firms
  • Universities
  • Clinical research organizations
  • Global market distributors

Consistent Medical Terminology

ISO Rubber Stamp

Terminology Management

Terminology management is vital in life sciences translations and is still an emerging field. Not every translation service is familiar with terminology management, which makes it a criterion for many companies serious about their life science translation.

When a translation or language service provider follows the guidelines set forth by the terminology management standards, they guarantee that their linguists are familiar with the medical terminology included in the original version. When a medical text is being translated to a local language, there will be instances in which the medical term does not exist.

Whether the tool is new or the condition is too complex to fit into a single word in the target language, it is the linguist’s job to translate it so that it still makes sense as a sentence. To properly create a new definition of the word, the linguist must know medical terminology in both languages and his knowledge of the languages’ structures.

Translation Quality and Medical Interpretation

Our team is also qualified to provide medical interpreting services. Most common language services, such as Spanish, Chinese and Arabic may be booked on the same day. Our professional medical translators are experienced with the type of questions and communications that take place in a hospital environment. We know accurate medical translations are key for properly conducting your medical routines and successful insurance claims.

Standards for Medical Translations

Life sciences translation service requires up-to-date knowledge of stringent regulatory laws in various countries and regions, including the U.S., the European Union, and Japan. These standards pertain to life sciences translation service’s process and procedures and the manufacture and sale of medical products and pharmaceuticals. Examples of these regulatory standards of critical relevance to medical translations include:

ISO 13485

ISO 13485 outlines requirements for a comprehensive quality management system to design and manufacture medical devices.

EN 15038

EN 15038 is the European standard for life sciences translation service, designed to ensure consistent service quality. The standard includes requirements for compliance with certain common procedures and mandates monitoring these processes and procedures, specially designed to execute translation.

ASTM F2575-06

ASTM F2575-06 provides a standardized framework for a clearer understanding between clients and medical translation providers to ensure high-quality translations that meet client expectations.
