What is a medical translator?

By Melia Yanat, Lingolet Team

What is a medical translator?

The translator is a language professional. 

His/her mission is to transcribe texts from a foreign language (source language) into his/her mother tongue (target language). 

His objectives are clear: accuracy and fluidity in his work. The translator translates a written text, respecting the original text's content and form. 

The translator translates the essence of a speech with the same intensity. Thanks to new technologies, this profession has evolved. It is no longer just a question of texts on paper but also digital media (e-documents, websites).           

In 2020, technological solutions have emerged to ensure remote access to interpreting and translating. Lingolet is the first to offer an on-demand solution with more than 4,000 interpreters and a complete management platform for administrators.
