German Medical Translations

German Medical Translations

German medical translations must be executed by highly-skilled and experienced translators with a thorough understanding of specific medical fields. German medical translations must provide an accurate rendering of the source content into the German language, and must be adapted to the target German reader, whether he/she is a doctor, patient, employee, student, or consumer.

German medical translations are required by a wide variety of medical fields, including:

Pharmaceuticals

Biomedicine

Diagnostics

Anesthesiology

Dentistry

Medical Equipment

Public Health

Environmental Health

Each field makes unique demands on medical translators: not only must they have a facility for the appropriate terminology, they must also understand the basic science behind the terms. Effective German medical translators should be highly-credentialed individuals with certifications, accreditations, or advanced degrees as appropriate to the field for which they are translating. They should have solid experience in the chosen medical subject area(s) and be equipped with the latest English-to-German dictionaries.

Increasingly, medical translators are responsible for providing accurate documentation in German and other languages in order to comply with international regulations for selling and distributing medical products. Legal requirements governing labeling, product sheets, and health and medical advice mandate that translation teams adhere to strict quality control processes when completing their translations.

Should you require a German medical translation, look for a translation company that recruits highly-qualified, proven medical translators. Additionally, they should be equipped to supply notarization and consent of translations as needed, and should have in place appropriate non-disclosure policies and practices.
