Medical Translation Services

Reliable Medical Translation for Global Healthcare

Medical Translation Services: Everything You Need to Know!

Nowadays, all types of automatic translation engines are available for free or at a very low price. However, BeTranslated recommends you think twice before using these tools, especially when technical pharmaceutical or medical translations are involved.

In extreme cases, the difference between an algorithm and a professional can mean the difference between life and death.

Why do I need a professional medical translation?

Medicine and pharmacy are two fields in which a lack of precision or, even worse, inaccuracies can have devastating consequences.

What could be more dangerous for a scientist than to read over a clinical trial protocol or medical research report only to find a string of nonsensical words simply because of an unreliable automatic translation or an unqualified translator?

How about the dangers of a missing zero, or the use of “hypo” instead of “hyper” for a patient?

Medical professionals place their trust in translators to provide their peers with an accurate, proofread version of their work.

A clumsy mistake could result in a patient not receiving the right treatment, or a disastrous misinterpretation of medical practice.

Just imagine the consequences of a mistranslation of instructions for a surgical instrument, or medical test results, or a pharmaceutical package leaflet.

The worst-case scenario

translator specialising in marketing often has to rewrite a text entirely, taking the intended audience into account. A strategy that is effective in the United Kingdom, may not be received in the same way in Asia, for example.

The translator must adapt the text, taking into account the regional and cultural specifics of the target audience. Our experienced professional marketing translators are highly knowledgable of both the source and target cultures, enabling them to make the appropriate changes, without jeopardising the original message.

For this type of translation, it is also important to understand all the nuances and subtleties of the source language. After all, how do you translate and adapt a cultural reference or a play on words if you don’t understand it? Marketing translation is truly creative work, the kind that is usually reserved for advertising copywriters.

Who can I rely on for a quality medical translation?

At BeTranslated, we understand the importance of professional translation when it comes to medical and pharmaceutical texts. That is why we only assign specialised translators to all of our projects, especially those in fields such as medicine.

But what is a specialised translator? In this case, it would be a translator with background studies in medicine or pharmacy, or with more than 5 years of experience in medical translation.

Our expert linguists have a comprehensive understanding of medical and pharmaceutical jargon, the real meaning of technical terminology, and the language used by healthcare professionals. This assures us and our clients that there will be no risk of the types of mishaps previously mentioned.
