Healthcare Translation Services

Healthcare translation includes the translation of documents for healthcare practitioners, pharmaceutical companies, insurance companies, employers, and governments. It includes medical reports related to consultations, surgery, therapy and treatment; pharmaceutical products; medical devices, patient instructions; and more.

Healthcare translations are unique because healthcare documents have the potential to involve life and death decisions. They may impact the quality of life for patients and their families. It is critical that healthcare-related documents are translated accurately so that any medical decisions based on them are made on a fully-informed basis.

Healthcare translations may impart technical information for healthcare professionals or provide information to patients and their families in more simple terms. Medical device operating manuals, drug information sheets and usage instructions are other examples of commonly-translated healthcare

Each healthcare translation project is localized to the region and the intended audience, conforming linguistically, culturally and accurately. Localization is the key to a high-quality translation and is essential for its success in “bridging the language divide around the world”.

Our healthcare translation services are further enhanced by our use of specialized translation software that incorporates a “translation memory”. Unique to each client, this memory is continually updated according to the client’s needs, and the unique characteristics of each project. Each project is therefore customized, comprehensive and complete. Consistency of style, lexicon, sentence structure and details are maintained from project to project, reducing costs and increasing the quality of each translation project.

Good orthography and grammar are elements that cannot be overlooked or considered lightly when a company’s reputation is at stake. At AZ World, we understand this and make it our mission to provide the most effective and efficient translation services possible.

With every translation service we make your goals our goals, and we do everything possible to ensure that your project goes above and beyond.
