What Makes Translating a Medical Document More Difficult Than Translating Any Other Document?

Can you paraphrase the following sentence?

"If resistance is felt during mechanical distraction, the interlaminar bony bridges must be resected to avoid fracture of the base of the spinous processes. In cases of overlapping and hypertrophic laminae (kissing laminae), preliminary resection is recommended. Similarly, in cases of a kissing spine involving the spinous processes, resection of the lateral hypertrophic aspects of the spinous processes is necessary. At this stage, the interlaminar distractor can be inserted as far anteriorly as possible at the junction between the base of the spinous process and the laminae."

If you didn't have a background in medicine, you probably couldn't. Well, translation is, fundamentally, paraphrasing.

In this example the instructions are for a surgeon, the language specialist must understand medical terminology to communicate at a professional level of understanding. It is our precise matching of subject matter with target matching that makes us unique. We match our language specialists from our ASKnetwork at the same level of expertise. Would you want your surgical instructions to be translated by a translator without an MD?

At EPMG, we hold to the principle:

If You Don't Understand It, You Cannot Translate It!

That is why EPMG requires that all Medical Translators and Translation Editors to have education, training and work experience in the areas of medicine matching the subject matter they translate. Our meticulous Quality Control system is the most thorough in the industry, with a system of checks and balances in place throughout the entire processfrom the selection of project managers to the final proofreading of the translated document.
