Medical Interpreting Services

Medical interpreters are key members of modern care teams, delivering a crucial service that can make a huge difference to people involved in medical situations, reducing stress, facilitating understanding, encouraging compassion and improving outcomes. Our specialist medical interpreters work across the medical sector, supporting people during medical appointments, on hospital visits, for professional medical conferences and in medi-legal situations. There are few times where accurate translation is as important as in a medical scenario, where the health and well-being of a patient could depend on clear communication. But patients with limited English in medical situations often rely on family and friends to interpret for them, leading to a risk of misunderstandings or important information not being communicated. A qualified medical interpreter is experienced specifically in medical situations, with a grasp of specialist medical terminology in both languages, plus an appreciation of the need for precision. Our medical interpreters also have a full understanding of medical ethics and standards of practice, such as patient confidentiality and role boundaries for interpreters.

Medical Legal Interpretation

Absolute Translations has extensive experience in the medi-legal field, providing experienced interpreters for all kinds of medical legal situations, such as giving medical evidence in court, expert witness testimony, medical insurance claims, medical negligence cases and meetings with lawyers and medical mediations. Our medical interpreters are experienced in working in these very specialised situations and have an extensive knowledge of medical and legal terminology in their languages as well as a deep grasp of legal issues and concepts. In a medi-legal situation, accurate, fast interpretation can be the determining factor in the successful resolution of a case. Both the medical and legal professions are increasingly recognising the importance of quality interpretation, even in situations where patients may speak some English. Taking away the stress of communicating in a second language allows people to concentrate on the detail of their case, improving communication, quality of experience and results.

Professional medical interpretation, whatever the situation

Having an authoritative, experienced interpreter present in a medical situation builds confidence, ensures culturally appropriate treatment for patients, relieves stress for medical practitioners and saves money by reducing readmissions and follow-up appointments. Over 20 years Absolute Translations has built up a network of interpreters with experience in the medical field, and can connect you with the right interpreter for your specific situation. As a member of the Association of Translation Companies, we are committed to upholding a strict code of ethics and professional conduct, particularly important in medical interpretation. We are dedicated to a high level of customer service, and can advise you on the best interpreter for your situation, or on a team of interpreters if you are organising a large event.
