Medical translation is one of the most complicated and demanding areas of translation. Due to the great responsibility that lies with the translator, medical translation requires the utmost precision and attention to detail.
Specialists in medical translation are often practicing doctors with certified language skills, double graduates or highly experienced translators who specialize in this field.
In addition to specialized terminology and linguistic complexity, one of the greatest difficulties in this area of translation lies in the interdisciplinary nature of the translated material. Medical translators must have a thorough understanding of fields such as biology, chemistry, biotechnology or bioengineering. This is why they often pick one specific area of specialization such as, for instance, cardiology, infectious diseases, general medicine or pharmaceutical manufacturing.
