Key Elements of a Medical Interpreter

In any situation, it is always critical to be able to communicate effectively. However, there are situations when language gets in our way; thus the need for an interpreter. Like for example, if there is a need for a doctor to relay the needed medical diagnosis and treatment to a non-English speaking patient.

Take note of these important key elements when getting the services of a medical interpreter:

Language Expertise. The professional interpreter must have a deeper understanding and mastery of both the source and the target language. He needs this in order to be able to accurately interpret the needed information.

Specialization in Medical Interpretation. Any interpreter wouldn’t work in this type of task. The person you should be hiring is someone who has the knowledge on the different medical terminologies. Bear in mind that we are talking about ensuring that the right diagnosis is relayed and that the patient gets the appropriate medical treatment.

Pleasant. Being in a hospital can already cause anyone to feel anxious. More so if you don’t speak the language and you are unable to communicate. The interpreter you hire should be pleasant enough to make the patients feel at ease especially when there is a need for sensitive medical conditions to be relayed.

Available. Your medical interpreter should display a certain level of professionalism by being there when needed.
