Inadequate Medical Translation Services Translate to Medical Malpractice

Medical Translation and Medical Malpractice from German Translation and Korean Transltion mistakes.

Medical Translation Negligence

With the amount of publicity that medical error has received in the news, it is easy to see why the public now views it as something very serious in terms of avoidable patient injury, achieving effective treatment, and controlling health care costs. The prevention of medical errors may seem to be a relatively simple task, and with heightened awareness, some improvements have been reported. While some of these methods are already in place, healthcare administrators are continuously working on new practical, reasonable, and effective approaches.  Unfortunately, most new cases of medical negligence could have easily been avoided.  For instance, research shows that the majority of healthcare slip-ups are due to subpar communiqué often from inexperienced medical translation workers.  Through this editorial, we will shine light on an important oversight so that safer, better and less expensive medical treatment can be offered.

Problems in medical translation and interpretation occur throughout the world.   No country is safe. There are still treatment centers throughout the world that are unqualified to accommodate people needing Japanese, Portuguese or even Korean Translation services.  To help explain the scale of this predicament, our medical translation team has documented a case that will give you a general idea of the issues we face today.

Textbooks on workplace communication detail the encoding, transmission and decoding that takes place in all forms of workplace.  Each message is designed to produce some sort of stimuli when interpreted by the intended party. There are a wide range of methods that allow messages to transmitted and received in an organization that consist of vocal, printed and other non-verbal processes.  For illustration, communication can be facilitated frankly or through an intermediary by means of a vocal message, cell phone, text message, letter, etc.. In addition, the message can take on a wide range of tones that may seem offensive, peaceful, hurried, panicked, advisory, vendictive.  It might also be in a foreign language, special code or another means of expression. Communication might have a hidden agenda too.  In other words, it can full of ambiguity, shun responsibility, and be misleading.

With the previous background information, we now feel comfortable sharing the findings from a medical care study that examined the results of inadequate medical translation..  A worldwide report written by a major medical association found large instances of medical translation error in the medical systems of the U.S., Canada and several European Union nations.  In nearly one in five cases that required the involvement of a medical translator, a serious error was reported. The primary cause was contributed to insufficient experience of the medical translator that contributed to a breakdown in overall communication. The problem implicated the German Translation workers who were shown to lack the medical and interpretation skills needed to adequately communicate the doctor’s orders.    This resulted in patients who were too confused about the instructions provided by the interpreter or patients who didn’t agree with something that the interpreter said. According to available intelligence sources, the health of patients was often in jeopardy because the translator was unqualified to accurately communicate knowledge, beliefs, concerns, questions and answers to the medical staff. Often, doctors were unable not make clear the specific goals for treatment. Translators also overlooked other information that pertained to side-effects of medication and emotional burdons. As a result, many patients grew tired of the side effects and completely stopped taking their prescriptions.  The researchers also found countless examples of poor translations that led to duplicate appointments, incorrect appointment times and large errors in the translation of patient medical records.

Evaluating Translation Services

With the market full of translation companies, selecting an accurate and reliable translation company can be extremely challenging.  Here is a list of several factors to evaluate when selecting a translation service.

History and Experience

Consider the number of years that the translation has been in business.  Generally, companies with greater tenure are most likely to provide quality work and have high quality, knowledgeable translation specialists in your field.  THE MARKETING ANALYSTS has 20-years of experience in the translation service industry.  During this time, we have successfully serviced the needs of individuals, corporations and government agencies that have required medical, legal, financial, technical and other fields that require translators with specialized training, education and expertise.

Qualifications

How does a translation company screen potential translators?  Does the translation service company have a formal recruitment and selection process in place in order to guarantee the highest quality service?     THE MARKETING ANALYSTS requires that each candidate for a translation position have a minimum of ten years of verifiable professional translation experience.  We also perform thorough reference checks that relate to past translation projects.  Our educational requirements insist on native level language proficiency combined with an advanced degree or certification in their specialized subject field.

On-Time Service and Project Management

Your project has deadlines and you need peace of mind that your project will be completed on time.  On average, our translators complete 2,000 words per day.  However, we also offer rush service in case your project has very short deadlines.  While we do charge extra for rush service, we might be able to meet your tight deadline.  Please call us and we will tell you for sure.

Price

Different translation companies have different pricing structures.  Most companies will charge per word.  However, rates may differ based on the specific language and localization, education and expertise of the translator, and additional services like desktop publishing and express services.    It is important to realize that if a price seems too low, then it probably is.

THE MARKETING ANALYSTS is a U.S. based company that serves clients throughout the world.  With two decades of success, THE MARKETING ANALYSTS remains true to the values that fuel its success today: accurate, fast, friendly, and honest service.   Our clients can still count on receiving this exceptional service.  As a leading translation services company, we are committed to helping you achieve your communication goals.
