Healthcare From medical documents to patient communications, we translate with clarity and unrivalled rigour.

Translation agency for the medical sector

The medical field is one of the most complex to deal with, both locally and internationally. It encompasses a wide range of professions, specificities and extremely precise terms that need to be understood to convey information accurately. Swisstranslate is a language agency specialising in the medical sector: for almost 10 years, we have been translating your projects into over 100 languages, with accuracy and excellence as our watchwords.

The challenges of medical translation

The health sector is demanding, and for good reason. Certain medical specialities are constantly on the lookout for professionals, because their training is sometimes long and, above all, difficult to access: general medicine, surgery and pharmacy are the main areas concerned. Medical advances are ongoing and require adaptation to new technologies, in-depth knowledge of the sector and the terminology (names, tools, etc.), total familiarity with standards in different countries, and so on. It is therefore essential that a translation retains the same meaning in all languages.

At Swisstranslate, we make a point of ensuring that our translation services are carried out by true professionals. As well as being native speakers of your target language (English, Spanish, Italian, German, etc.), they have extensive experience in the medical sector and know how to adapt your message to suit your audience, your specialism, and content. Your message remains coherent and precise from A to Z.

Our team works to ensure that your documents are secure throughout the project, processing them exclusively using our secure management tool, hosted in Switzerland. Your data will of course be deleted at the end of the translation, and we will sign a confidentiality agreement.
