Accurate Nordic-Baltic Medical Translation

Over past 27 years we have gathered experience in the field of life sciences and worked for such leading healthcare and pharmaceutical companies, contract research organizations, and medical device manufacturers worldwide as Karolinska UniversitetssjukhusetKoite Health OyPfizer, Recipharm, GE Healthcare, Sirowa, Braun, Novartis, Grindex and many others.

For life science and medical text translation only the most qualified translators and interpreters as well as field experts are assigned. They all have in-depth medical knowledge, experience in the medical field and/or have worked in hospital/healthcare sector since inaccuracy is critical in medical translations. Its consequences can range from infringing on strict international laws to potential health risks.

All our providers work for the ISO 9001:2015 certified company and to minimize any risks the translations are also insured.

Medical translation presents a number of unique challenges. For example, translation expertise alone is often not enough to deliver an accurate translation. Medical documents practically always make use of specialized terminology and newly developed concepts that may need to be redeveloped in the target language. Due to the broad spectre of medical translations, the translators specialized in medical topics cannot limit their knowledge to one topic, skills in sub-categories and related topics are needed as well. Then we come to another related point - readability. The text needs to be tailored to the audience, which requires an in-depth understanding of cultural specifics and language use.

Human Translation  

All our translations are done and edited by human beings. The term human translation is used as opposed to machine translation. Human translation is executed by a human translator, whereas machine-translation is executed by a translation machine and edited by a post-editor.

Our human translators do translations ONLY into their native language and reside in the country where this language is either the official language or the language prevalent in social life. We have our own translator testing system. Criteria: linguistic education, at least 5 years of experience in translation, references from other clients, test translation. Learn more here.
