What Are FIGS in Interpretation and Translation?

By Camille Bouvet, Lingolet team

What Are FIGS in Interpretation and Translation?

The FIGS means, in the translation industry, French, Italian, German, and Spanish.

Those are the main languages required for a good English translator or interpreter.

The American hospitals may need certified translators, mastering all these languages. Employing a full-time translator can cost a lot of money, and using a free translator is risky and does not respect the professional secrecy that hospitals must guarantee.
