Pairing the Best Translator for the Job:
Every language is formed by the people, environment and culture where it was developed. Each language is unique and has it’s own set of nuances, ambiguities and distinctions. Language never seamlessly translates from one into another, there are too many individual aspects to factor in. In order for a person to have the skilled ability to accurately translate information precisely from one language into another, they have to thoroughly know the ends and outs of both languages, cultural influences as well as the subject which they’re translating for. Grasping the nuances of language is hard when having general conversations and even harder when dealing with difficult terminology and concepts found in medical or legal fields. Many healthcare facilities and legal organizations are in need of professional document translation services on a regular basis and they need to make sure they are turning to the correct resources in order to get the job done accurately.
Every word counts when an important document is being translated and utilizing an unqualified translator can bring disastrous results, damage to your reputation or even cause lawsuits. An inexperienced translator may lack the experience needed in order to translate material for legal or medical subject matter. Translating these types of documents is an immense amount of responsibility, it takes a translator who is fluent in both languages and who is also extremely well versed and highly knowledgeable in the industry they are translating for. Negative outcomes due to poor translation can be avoided by hiring a professional language service provider to gain access to translators who have experience translating for legal or medical subject matter.
Legal Document Translation:
Translating legal documents is considered very difficult due to the fact that each country and corresponding language has it’s own legal terminology as well as legal system. The legal information provided in the source text is structured to follow the legal system of the language it was written in, however the target text will be read by a person who understands another language and is familiar with a different legal system. Here is where the immense difficulty resides, the translator has to ensure the message is conveyed clearly and concisely despite the fact that there are normally never direct equivalents in translation. The translator has the responsibility of finding a sound and suitable way to ensure that the message is understood through good sentence structure, syntax and proper word selection. Often times translated legal documents endure rigorous proofing, re-checking and perfecting in order to hold value in a court of law. Precision in legal document translation is crucial, professional legal translators spend years working in the legal field and familiarizing themselves with the languages they translate for. Mistranslated legal documents can be thrown out of court or potentially misconstrue an argument or water down an important point that needed to be made. Taking legal document translation lightly can truly backfire, this type of translation should always be left in the capable hands of professionals.

Mistakes in medical translations can result in loss of life or additional injury; accuracy, clarity and attention-to-detail are a must when translating medical documents. Mistranslations regarding medication dosages or patient allergies, for example, can lead to serious consequences and result in dangerous situations. Professional medical translation is not only important but it’s vital in providing the best possible care for patients. This is why it’s best to trust medical document translation to professional translators who are experienced in the medical field. Like legal translators, medical translators have full command of both languages and they also have experience with and understanding of medical concepts, terminology and industry jargon needed to produce accurate medical transitions.
