Medical & Pharmaceutical
Medical translations and interpretation require 100% precision and accuracy since lives literally might rely upon the exact meaning of a word.
Between 2006-2007, 47 patients had to undergo a second knee replacement, a complicated and painful medical procedure, because of incorrect translation. The translator made a mistake and wrote “non-cemented” or “without cement”, instead of “non-modular cemented”. Only one single word caused a very long time of painful inconvenience for these 47 individuals, also untold monetary ramifications for the organization concerned.
Readability is almost as crucial as accuracy in pharmaceutical translations. Directions should be clear, simple, and easy to ensure that patients grasp the information. If a patient does not understand the instructions for their medicine, they may not be able to obtain adequate treatment. They may even stop taking their prescription because they are too embarrassed to seek further information from their doctor. This is also true for medical devices and machines. Due to a lack of clear instructions, considerable time delays may occur, putting both the equipment and the personnel at risk.
As Asian countries continue to develop, their pharmaceutical needs become greater and greater. In China, due to the increasingly aging population, there is a rise in medical needs that present plenty of prospects for the country’s pharmaceutical sector. In 2018, the Asian giant accounted for 11% of the global pharmaceutical market. The same year, the United States was the largest medical market in the world, accounting for 40.4 percent of total revenues. As a result, China’s pharmaceutical business will need to consolidate significantly. Many companies and businesses will be able to discover the new market possibilities and niches throughout the Chinese pharmaceutical industry.
