English to French Medical Translation Projects and French to English Medical Translation Projects
We assist organizations with Medical documentation that is written in the English or Spanish languages and requires accurate translation into French.
Of course, in addition to English to French and Spanish to French Medical translation assignments, we can also assist you with the translation of the world's most popular languages into French: Chinese to French; Arabic to French; German to French; Japanese to French; Portuguese to French; Russian to French; Korean to French; Italian to French; Hindi to French; and more...
We cover a wide range of medical specialties, sub-specialties and medical terms from anesthesia and dentistry to veterinary medicine and pharmaceuticals. Patient information and history records, clinical study reports, instruction manuals, patent applications, medical charts, hospital discharge summaries, general medical documents, product specifications, medical prescriptions, insurance claims, manuscripts are but a sampling of the wide range medical terminology translation assignments we are prepared to handle.
Medical Language - Cultural Considerations
Our translators, editors and proofreaders render well-written and clearly understandable texts. We place a high value on rendering a finished product that is faithful to the cultural nuances of the target language text, where such may apply.
French to English Medical Translation Projects and French to Spanish Medical Translation Projects
We assist healthcare organizations in finding the best available French to English and French to Spanish Medical language translation resources, including experienced French language translators (native-speaking French if appropriate or required).
In our experience, a French language native-speaker may not necessarily be the right translator for the job. (See: Common myths and misconceptions about translation.) Though a native-speaker may be preferable for certain translation assignments, having French as a native language may not 'translate into' French language expertise (pun intended). An experienced linguist with strong Spanish and French or English and French language translation credentials, in-depth experience and professional credentials, regardless of native language, may often prove to be a better choice.
In a nutshell, we use professional translators who have a solid mastery of the French language (grammar, spelling, cultural nuances) and a solid understanding of the subject matter.
Once we are confident that the appropriate freelance resources have been identified and certain that we can honour the project deadline, we submit a quote for the medical translation assignment.
If we cannot secure the appropriate resources, we will do our best to refer you to French medical translation sources of information that we have confidence in.
