Medical translation is one of the most technically complex specialisations and medical documents are known to be difficult and time-consuming to translate. Our experience in this field however allows us to deliver professional medical document translation of any medical document, including handwritten ones.
Although most medical documents are relatively short and can be translated within a very short time (we also offer urgent translation service of up to 24 hours), others, such as medical guidelines and specifications, medical device information and technical specifications are lengthy and require extended completion periods. Many such documents may also be of legal nature (especially medical guidelines and directives, national, EU or international) and we bear this in mind when assigning the translation to a professional linguist and translator. This way you can rest assured about the accuracy of your translated document. Please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss your requirements and preferences and we will be happy to assist.
Another important element in medical document translation is knowledge of Latin (especially for medical prescriptions and medical history records, also known as antecedents) and we require that all our translators be familiar with Latin and medical terms in Latin.
Some of the most frequently translated medical documents are medical reports and examinations. These can often be a mix of typed and handwritten text as well as a mix of languages (Latin, Spanish and Catalan in one document, for example). Medical laboratory tests are more complex to translate and usually come in a specific format, which will be reproduced by our translators insofar as it is possible.
We can furthermore arrange for medical interpreting services, if you are looking for an interpreter to assist you at a medical consultation with a specialist, be it in Ireland or online. We can also assist you with localisation of medical texts and content for your professional practice or marketing purposes. We can offer a combination of medical translation, certification, interpreting, and localisation services if you have a comprehensive project to complete.
Medical document translation is intrinsically related to safety and confidentiality. One’s medical information is not only sensitive per se, but must be treated in strict confidentiality in accordance with national and international laws. We guarantee and ensure confidentiality of any and all of your medical documents in accordance with the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
