Vietnamese Medical Translations

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

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

PharmaceuticalsBiomedicineDiagnosticsAnesthesiology
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 Vietnamese 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-Vietnamese dictionaries.

Increasingly, medical translators are responsible for providing accurate documentation in Vietnamese 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 Vietnamese 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.
