Medical and pharmaceutical translations

Scientific texts translated and subjected to a linguistic “check-up”

The many years of experience our translation agency has in the scientific field have resulted in the creation of the SMG Medicine service line, dedicated exclusively to the linguistic needs of clients operating in the medical and pharmaceutical sector.

Our scientific translators and interpreters regularly assist pharmaceutical companies, research centres, hospitals, medical associations, public/private health institutions and professionals of the scientific world who require efficient translation, interpreting and language training services.

Medical language uses terminology which is rigorously standardised and that requires accurate and translations demonstrating in-depth knowledge. This is pertinent when we consider the fact that we are talking about our most precious asset: our health.

For this reason, we carry out medical and pharmaceutical translations using only translators specifically trained in scientific fields and we submit the translated texts to rigorous quality checks which conform to the European standard for translation quality (UNI EN 15038 and ISO 17.100), verifying and improving them thanks to control checks carried out by other translators and medical professionals

The medical and pharmaceutical translation service is carried out by our native speaker translators in our foreign offices located in the country where the requested language is the official language.

Here are some examples:

  • In the UK and the USA, we carry out medical translations into British and American English respectively;
  • In Italy, we carry out medical translations into Italian;
  • In France, we carry out medical translations into scientific French;
  • In Germany, we carry out medical translations into German;
  • In Spain, we carry out medical translations into European Spanish;
  • In Latin America, we carry out medical translations into Latin American Spanish and Portuguese.
