What is Medical Document Translation?

Medical documents encompass all forms of texts, records, books, manuals, videos, and other materials pertaining to this field.

Some common types of medical documents that need translation include:

  1. ● Medical company/organization capacity profiles

Key factors in certified medical document translation

To produce high-quality certified medical document translations, translators need to meet the following criteria:

  1. ● Language skills to ensure high accuracy in the translation
  2. ● Extensive expertise in the medical field
  3. ● Precise translation of specialized terminology

In some countries, medical document translation only requires certification. However, some countries such as South Korea, Vietnam, or Japan require notarized translation for certain medical documents. Hence, medical translators should also possess a thorough understanding of legal documentation and the capability to proceed with certification and notarization procedures when required.

Moreover, medical documents are often intended for readers who are medical students, specialists, or experts. Therefore, medical document translation demands absolute precision and readability to facilitate readers’ access to the content. Inaccurate translations of such documents can lead to misinformation, impacting research and educational outcomes, and in severe cases, posing serious risks to human health and even lives.

For these reasons, many businesses and organizations opt for Expert Review – an effective solution to ensure the highest translation accuracy and reduce potential medical risks. This is a post-translation complementary service that involves a thorough review by native experts with years of experience in the relevant field.
