There are a number of sub-disciplines even within the broad discipline of medical translation. There is an evident difference of software translation of scientific articles and translations of information leaflets for different drugs and content for purposes of patients. The translator who has special knowledge of ontological for example, if translated document is for new surgical adhesives, would not be the right person for that purpose. USA Translate is aware of this fact and we will always assign professional medical translators to any project, large or small.

The translator who translates a medical file or record is doing so for doctors and other medical practitioners. These individuals are highly trained, and they take the translated content exceptionally seriously, so you need to have it translated in the most accurate manner possible for them to think that they can act on the information that you have provided.
With us, there are always 2 translators appointed to all projects. The first translates and the second proofreads the translation.
