Medical translations propose various challenges that the linguistic experts at Language Concepts have no issues handling.
Medical translations in Spanish are challenging because of both the language and cultural barriers.
Many medical translations that are performed may be for new medicines, clinical trials, general medical information, medical devices, medical document translations, informed consent forms, etc.
Medical document translations in Spanish are necessary so that healthcare workers can provide Hispanic patients with the necessary care and treatments.
Healthcare professionals must also review the patients’ medical history in order to treat them safely and properly, and not mix certain medicines if the patient is currently taking any.
Having access to professional and competent translations is vital so that they can help explain the patients’ medical history, discomforts, etc. to the doctor, as well as help the patient understand test results, charts and whatever other information is given by the doctor.
During treatment, the patient will likely be subject to signing various medical documents where a professional translator would be needed to accurately translate each document.
It is vital that the patient understands each document, cost, procedure and whatever else is included in the document(s) in order to be aware of what they are signing for.
