Medical translations: in which sectors are they needed?

medical translation services Eurotrad

Medical translations are a particularly tricky translation service due to the subject matter involved. Professional medical translations are predominantly sought by professionals and companies operating in the medical sector. This includes industries involved in the production of pharmaceuticals and medical devices, as well as technology companies producing healthcare software and electronic equipment.

What are medical translations?

Medical translations span a plethora of different domains: These often include:

  • the translation of technical manuals or operating instructions for medical machinery
  • the translation of leaflets and packaging for medicines or medical devices
  • the translation of user interfaces for digital medical equipment software
  • the translation of brochures, leaflets, and information pamphlets
  • the translation of websites for hospitals and clinics, etc.

Like all technical translations, professional medical translations require a deep understanding of the subject matter and necessitate the use of specialised glossaries to accurately translate each term with its precise equivalent. Medical translation leaves no room for personal interpretation.
The purpose of medical translation is to provide individuals overseas with the medical documents they need.

What sorts of medical documents can you translate?

Here is a list of medical documents that often need to be translated:

  • patient leaflets for medicinal products
  • user manuals for medical machinery
  • information documents for doctors
  • medical and scientific research articles
