Healthcare translations are written translations prepared for numerous healthcare fields. Healthcare translation services play a crucial role in helping healthcare professionals communicate effectively with limited English proficient (LEP) patients. Patients who are limited in their use of the English language also must be able to fully understand their health condition, treatment, and follow-up instructions.
Mistakes in medical translation can have serious clinical consequences for patients, and negatively impact a brand’s reputations. Failure to translate vital documents, such as notices of language assistance, discharge instructions, and complaint forms can violate nondiscrimination laws like Section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
When one mistake can cause serious problems, you need a translation services company you can trust…
Since 1991, Telelanguage has helped thousands of healthcare organizations to improve language access programs through high-quality healthcare language interpretation and healthcare translation services. Over 70% of our clients are health care entities.
