Medical translation is the translation of technical, regulatory, clinical or marketing documentation, software or training curriculum for the pharmaceutical, medical device or healthcare fields.
Of any area of expertise, the medical field is probably the most difficult to translate because of the highly technical, sensitive and regulated nature of medical texts. A small translation error can have considerable repercussions for patients, end users of medical instruments, as well as professionals.
Therefore, aside from linguistic skills, medical translation requires specific training and subject matter knowledge in order to translate medical content.
This is why Express Language Solutions collaborates exclusively with translators specialized in a particular field and living in the country where the “medical product” is intended.
