Medical translation for FIGS: French, Italian, Spanish, German

By Camille Bouvet, Lingolet Intern

Medical translation for FIGS: French, Italian, Spanish, German

It can be tough to find an excellent medical translator; medical language is precise and technical, so the translator must be certified in this sector.

But, the translator may not necessarily master all of the FIGS.   

What are the FIGS ?   

FIGS means French, Italian, German, and Spanish. 

These are the four main languages to master for an English interpreter. 

In U.S. hospitals, these foreign languages are the most significant demand, especially Spanish. It can be a very handful for hospitals to find a certified medical interpreter who masters FIGS.  

 But, employing a full-time interpreter is expensive for the hospital, and some emergencies may occur in the middle of the night. With Lingolet, no more issues !
