Medical translation

Medicine fructosior ars nulla.
Pliny the Elder

Medical translation is an art.  It is one of the asked-for and one of the most complicated types of translations that require from the translator a good command of specialized terminology.  Here the translator has nothing to do with fantasy or rephrasing, here it is important to render the accuracy and the specific character of the original text.

Among the difficulties of medical texts translation one could state the following: abundance in specific terms, large number of abbreviations and acronyms, doctor’s indecipherable writing, and sometimes utilization of a dead language such as the Latin language.  The right orthography of the terms plays a significant role in performing the qualitative translation.  Moreover, medical texts sometimes bear far not a pleasant information that is even unacceptable for many people and that evoke negative emotions – the fact that can also negatively affect the translation.
