If there’s a crucial science for the human being and everything that surrounds him, that’s medicine. Studying how our body works and how it’s influenced by external factors such as the environment allows for the investigation of new illnesses and their treatments as society evolves. As a translator, I’m proud to be able to contribute to improve our health and quality of life through my job.

Whether you represent a pharmaceutical lab, a medical equipment manufacturer, a research team or a publishing house, the documents you need to deal with for distributing your products or spreading your findings will most probably be filled with highly specialized concepts and terminology. In some cases, such as when developing and marketing medicines or medical devices, there are regulations and legal differences between countries that need to be taken into consideration.

Because we’re dealing with life and safety, translating these types of texts is to me a delicate task that requires a complete understanding of the text, thorough documentation and knowledge about the regulatory context in both the country of origin and the target country.

Similarly to the cardiologists’ motto “Time is muscle”—outlining the importance of a fast and efficient medical assistance in case of heart attack, which influences the amount of muscle that can be recovered and, in turn, the quality of life afterwards—, an accurate and flawless translation is just as vital when it comes to medical texts and ultimately, our lives.
