How Does Medical Translation Services Work?

The translation is difficult. 

In many cases, words have no one-to-one equivalents across languages, but medical translation simply must be painstakingly accurate as imprecision can endanger lives. 

Patients put their health in the hands of not only caregivers but also medical translators, all of whom must complete their jobs accurately and competently.
