Certified English Translations for Universities

Certified Translations for Hospitals & Medical Offices

Medical translation services in Los Angeles

Many hospitals, clinics, and medical offices in Los Angeles admit international patients who do not speak English or need to have their medical documents translated into English. The translation of international patients’ documents such as medical records, prescriptions, doctor’s notes, and test results are often very important to offices that do not have their own multilingual staff onsite. They render translation services to review the patients’ medical record, diagnose the medical condition, and prescribe medication or carry out the right medical procedures. Medical translators who focus on the translation of such documents remove language barriers for medical offices in United States that need to review their international patients’ medical records in the English language. Likewise, medical interpreters accompany patients to their appointments, clinical visits, and treatments. They facilitate communications between English speaking physicians and patients from other parts of the world. They may also assist international patient coordinators in scheduling and rescheduling appointments for patients who do not speak English.

Why medical translation matters

Hospitals that take medical tourists often rely on the works of medical translators when they review foreigners’ medical records. They usually have to know the medical history of international patients in order to make recommendations and prescribe medication. Without access to the English translations of international patients’ medical records, U.S. hospitals would probably face difficulty providing medical advice and diagnosis to international patients. Many professionals in the medical field ask patients from foreign countries to submit the certified translation of their medical documents. Our medical translators who have extensive experience in the industry truly understand the importance of clear translations in medical settings. They strive to deliver top-quality translations for medical teams.

Certified translations and medical tourism

Many patients around the world consider medical tourism because they are trying to reduce expenses or they are seeking a procedure that is not available in their home country. Others may just be looking for a second opinion from a medical professional overseas. International patients who are seeking medical treatments and consultations in the United States usually need to present the certified translation of their medical documents to English speaking doctors. They should get in touch with experienced translators who understand medical language and can translate and certify the content from the source language to English accurately. Translation companies that translate and certify medical documents according to the requirements of medical facilities in the United States help international patients submit their paperwork more efficiently.

Translation of Medical Device User’s Manuals

Why Get a Medical Device User’s Manual Translated?

Medical device distributors in Los Angeles and many other parts of the country that provide products to hospitals all over the world often rely on translation companies to get various types of documents translated into foreign languages. They do not usually specialize in document translation or have bilingual professionals in-house and therefore required the assistance of a third party that can translate their documents for international buyers.

They typically need to remove language barriers and communicate their concepts in local languages in their attempts to penetrate into non-English speaking markets. They usually have to get their medical device user’s manuals translated for customers abroad because the buyers are unfamiliar with the product this distributor is providing. They might have used similar products, but if the manufacturer produced a unique device then they might struggle a bit with the technology.

Companies that introduce a new technology to international markets cannot simply assume that the users know how to operate the device. They should try to create a user-friendly experience for the buyers. Even if they have already distributed a similar medical device to the same market, they have to make sure that the users can properly use the new device.

Who Can Translate Medical Device User’s Manuals?

Translators who possess excellent skills in medical translations often can perform the translation of medical device user’s manuals. They have the expertise required to carry out a professional translation of your medical documents. Such documents are particularly important when it comes to introducing new technology to a market. The buyers are unfamiliar with the item you are trying to sell and might misuse, mishandle, or use it for the wrong purpose. Consequently, they might return the product or seek compensation for the damages it caused. To avoid confusion medical device distributors might seek the assistance of professional translators who have extensive experience in the area of medical translation.
