Medical Report Translation

Medical reports are key documents concerning a patient’s medical history, condition and/or treatment. They are commonly issued by doctors, surgeons, labs, hospitals and clinics for patients or other interested parties.

Medical reports are often required to advance patient care, but they are also employed for other reasons, such as promoting the public good, including documenting adverse drug reactions or infectious diseases, and providing health assessments for insurance providers, government agencies or other entities.

Why Translate a Medical Report?

As medical reports attest to a patient’s medical history, condition and/or treatment, there are many reasons to translate them, especially when crossing borders. These reasons include clinical trial research, transferring patients from one medical facility to another, continuing treatment at home for medical care received abroad, planning to undergo medical procedures abroad, insurance claims, government benefit claims, lawsuits and working in regulated occupations.

Some common types of medical reports include: history and physical examination reports, operative reports, discharge summaries, consultation reports, pathology reports, radiology reports, psychiatric reports and adverse event reports.

No matter the type of report or the reason it needs to be translated, it is crucial that your medical report is translated right.
