Increase patient safety, meet compliance standards and reduce the risks of medical errors with our interpretation and translation solutions.
For over 20 years, our medically-qualified interpreters have been helping doctors and patients communicate with one another.
Qualified Medical Interpreters
A partnership with us means you never have to worry about languages getting in the way of patient care. All of our medical interpreters have successfully completed a healthcare interpreting assessment that measures language proficiency, interpreting ability and knowledge of medical terminology. Many of them also hold national certifications from either the Certification Commission for Healthcare Interpreters (CCHI) or the National Board of Certification for Medical Interpreters (NBCMI). We’ll connect you to a telephone or video remote interpreter within seconds so that you can focus on what’s truly important – caring for your patients. And if the encounter requires a more personal touch, consider scheduling a face-to-face interpreter in over 200 languages.
Professional Translation Solutions
In order for non-English speaking patients to receive the best possible care, it’s critical they understand every aspect of the medical process. Live interpretation support is important but it’s just one piece of the puzzle. Patients also need to comprehend consent forms, post-op instructions, dosing information and prescription labels. Our medical translation solutions will help you communicate with your diverse patients in the written form. All translations will be performed by native speaking linguists with subject-specific expertise in the healthcare field.
All translators are certified by reputable associations or have the equivalent in experience and education, such as:
- American Translators’ Association (ATA)
- Canadian Translators, Terminologists and Interpreters Council (CTTIC)
- Colegio de Traductores Publicos (CTPBA)
- Monterey Institute Graduate School of Translation & Interpretation (GSTI)
- The Translators and Interpreters Guild (TTIG)
