Problems in Medical Translation

By Camille Bouvet, Lingolet Intern

Problems in Medical Translation

Medical translations can be a problem when they are poorly executed.

The translation must be accurate and professional. The lexicon of health requires a certified interpreter.

To avoid mistakes. There are many medical certifications for interpreters, such as HIPAA, GDPR, or CCAC.

Medical secrecy can be compromised because of an inadequate translation.

If you use a free online translator, user data is not protected, and therefore medical confidentiality is not respected. That is why medical staff must use professional translators or use a paid online translator to secure all data.
