It may sound easy to get medical translation services in the fields of science such as pharmaceuticals, medical devices, and animal health. The direct translation of the language of medical translation from the source language into the target language, the use of the spelling format (e.g. diyare -> diarrhoea) which we often refer as “transcription”, and the fact that it is considered to be a relatively less costly service, does not mean that there are no aspects to be cautious when purchasing this service.
This is about the health of living beings
In medical translation, the health of living beings is the main point. A comma placed in the wrong place or a number localized incorrectly may endanger the health of living beings and even lead to their death. Therefore, it is critical to work only with translation companies specialized in the field of medical translation. In addition, the company needs to provide detailed review at every stage of the translation process, just like Pharmaling does.
Mastery of the terminology is important
The terminological aspect of medical translation may seem straightforward and undisputed. It’s actually not the case. For example, translating the term “subject” in clinical trial texts in a wrong way and translating it as “denek” or “süje” instead of “gönüllü” may have consequences for the meaning of the text. In addition, it is necessary to know the terms that have a place in the Turkish language of medicine and to use the correct equivalents of some established abbreviations.
All problems can be solved with a smart translation process
The correct translation of terms, the correct transfer of numbers to the translation text, and the consistency within/between texts can be easily achieved with smart translation solutions. Pharmaling offers a comprehensive translation process with artificial intelligence technology that works with and learns from the translator and the touch of humans who are specialized in the field. All malignancies in the translation process are eliminated.
The elements mentioned above may have sounded daunting. However, when you get the medical translation service from the right provider, you don’t have to worry about these aspects of translation. As a company specialized in medical translation, Pharmaling is already aware of what needs to be considered.
