Types of medical translation services

The expert medical translators at Foreign Translations effectively translate a variety of highly technical medical topics, including:

Patient surveys

Patient surveys are becoming commonplace in most hospitals. Considering that there are a great many foreigners who visit the hospitals in America, patient surveys need to be extended to them as well. Foreign Translations can effectively translate both the surveys and the responses into all languages of the world.

FDA documents

International drug manufacturers need to submit accurate documentation to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) if they wish to market their products in the United States.  Foreign Translations can accurately and effectively translate your required FDA documents.

Clinical trials

Today, many clinical trials are being conducted in foreign countries.  These trials then need to be translated into multiple languages in order to ensure thoroughness and accuracy. Foreign Translations can translate clinical trial documents, and for regulatory submissions we provide certifications of translation accuracy.

Medical financial translation accuracy

With medical translations, accuracy is vital, as medicine labels, treatment procedures, and other medical data must be perfectly translated to save people's lives. To ensure that each medical translation is accurate and accessible, we interview each of our clients to find out the specific topic, intent, and audience of a particular translation.

As such, we match each project with a professional translator who is a:

  • Native speaker of the language into which you are translating your documents.This guarantees that your medical translation incorporates the most appropriate word choices so that precise meaning is conveyed
  • Medical expert in the specific medical topic relevant to the translation. Whether you need a surgeon, a biochemist, or another medical expert, we will pair your project with the exact type of experienced professional you need to accurately translate your documents

Confidentiality guaranteed

Paramount with accuracy is confidentiality. At Foreign Translations, we greatly respect our clients' privacy and guarantee that we will provide you with complete confidentiality throughout our medical translation process. None of your information will ever be shared with anyone except your medical translator, and all of our translators are bound by comprehensive confidentiality agreements.
