Medical translations

Medical translations are done by physicians with fluent or very good command of a foreign language. Their linguistic competencies are documented by international certificates (CPE, IELTS, TOEFL, DALF, ZDaF, etc. depending on a particular language) or foreign professional internships. They are usually practitioners for whom translations are a secondary occupation. However, there are also those who used to work as medical doctors. At present, they are pursuing a linguistic career in the scope of translations, or teaching students medical language because they possess dual education, e.g. they completed medical studies and are holders of bachelor’s or master’s degrees in a foreign philology.


medical doctor as a medical translator into Polish 

If required, written medical translations are consulted upon with expert clinicians. As for oral translations, we provide simultaneous interpreters for medical conferences in a  variety of locations – both within the borders of Poland and abroad. Moreover, we organize translation services for scientific congresses or training for medical doctors or nurses, when a consecutive interpreter with medical knowledge on a particular topic is needed.

Texts requiring a very detailed medical knowledge from a translator can be handed for translation directly to a physician with a specialty or during specialization, e.g. in paediatrics, oncology, cardiology, orthopaedics, surgery, gynaecology, nephrology or psychiatry, or to a scientific staff member holding an MD, PhD degree. On the other hand, translations of dentistry-oriented texts are done by a dentist, or in consultation with such a person. Content related proofreading of reprints of English journals is performed by a dental surgeon, MD, PhD and translation of manuscripts into English by another person holding a doctorate title in dentistry, a resident in the United Kingdom.

The vast majority of translation orders into the main European languages that we receive from patients looking for modern therapeutic methods abroad are their medical records or correspondence with medical doctors. The most common orders from the above area are as follows: patient’s hospitalization records, including discharge summary, MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imagining) examination or CT (Computed Tomography) examination. Victims of overseas accidents applying for compensation from an insurance company due to health impairment, or applying for a disability pension from a Social Insurance Institution due to a permanent incapacity for work, order from us  sworn translations of their medical records.

In turn, from companies, including corporations, we receive orders for translations of product information (patient information leaflets and summaries of product characteristics) or clinical trial records. Such documents are translated by clinical study monitors or medical doctors who have completed ICH-GCP or “Introduction to Clinical Trial Monitoring” training. We also translate texts from the scope of aesthetic and alternative medicine, since these areas are currently experiencing very dynamic growth. Upon request, a client is allowed to obtain a translation of a medical text done by a physician, and followed by the imprinting of a sworn translator’s seal.

We specialize in medical translations. Example types of medical and pharmaceutical documents we have translated to date:

  • Clinical study protocol;
  • Investigator’s brochure;
  • Patient’s diary;
  • Informed consent form (refers to a patient’s participation in a clinical trial);
  • Application to CEBK (Central Register of Clinical Studies) for approval on the conduct of a clinical trial;
  • Product information: Patient Information Leaflet (PIL), Summary of Product characteristics (SPC) (for a physician), (drug) package labelling;
  • Medical device instruction manual: patient monitor, foetal monitor, hospital early warning system, etc.;

  • A handbook designated for medical students or for internal purposes of pharmaceutical concerns, issued in the form of a monograph (cystic fibrosis, COPD, multiple sclerosis (MS), diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, etc.);
