Medical translations

An additional difficulty is the enormous responsibility taken by translators. Inaccurate translation of an instruction may cause incorrect handling of equipment, which may in turn expose patients to health risks and even lead to loss of life. In the case of medical translations, therefore, we pay the greatest attention to the creation of specialized terminology databases and highly scrupulous proofreading.

The medical texts that CM translates most often include user manuals of medical devices (computed tomography systems, ultrasound systems, X-ray equipment, defibrillators, surgical generators, hematology analyzers, endoscopy, laparoscopy and phacoemulsification equipment), software interfaces and manuals (for hematology analyzers, ECG devices, diagnostic imaging systems), leaflets for disposable accessories (catheters, guidewires, stents, endoprostheses and implants), patent applications, as well as descriptions of biochemical assays and clinical trials.

The medicine-related areas in which we have the most experience are:

  • Anesthesiology,
  • Biotechnology,
  • Surgery,
  • Gynecology,
  • Hematology,
  • Cardiac surgery,
  • Cardiology,
  • Emergency medicine,
  • Neurosurgery,
  • Neurology,
  • Ophthalmology,
  • Oncology,
  • Orthopedics,
  • Otolaryngology,
  • Pulmonology,
  • Radiology,
  • Stomatology,
  • Urology.
