Translations in Medicine
Health is not to be trifled with. You can make a mistake in the translation of a video game with no repercussions. But mistranslating a medical dosage can cost a patient his or her life. The third leading cause of death in the U.S. is medical errors. With that in mind, in the case of medicine, it is fully justified to seek out the most qualified translators in the industry.
Scientific Articles and Fake News
Since the pandemic began, all records for medical searches on the Internet have been broken. In this polarization of pro- and anti-vaccine articles, finding the most reliable sources has become a real challenge. We can find such a variety of opinions that discerning the truth becomes a challenge. And if we add the complication of an article that is in a foreign language or has been poorly translated, the result is obvious: Increased radicalization and extreme movements of violence. It is our duty to inform ourselves well and consult several sources to corroborate data before communicating our own ideas. A good translation from a reliable source of scientific news contributes to the progress of humanity.
Reliable Scientific Sources
If you have ever wondered who to trust when consulting medical or scientific matters, here are the most requested sources in English on the Internet:
- Medline Plus
- PubMed Central
- Center for Disease Control
- Mayo Clinic Health Information
- CAPHIS: Consumer & Patient Health Information Section
Keep in mind that these sources come from governmental and official bodies. Your judgment and your own research are sometimes necessary to find a source that you consider valuable and accurate.
Translations of scientific and medical books should be done by people with extensive experience and knowledge in those topics and should be reviewed by a another translator who is an expert in the subject. This is a crucial step to reach your target market with the certainty that the text they are reading corresponds to the original message you wanted to communicate.
