What Are the FIGS ?

By Camille Bouvet, Lingolet team

What Are the FIGS ?

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.
