Translations for a Highly Regulated Industry
All 50 states in the U.S. have laws that address the issue of language access in healthcare settings. Several states have language access laws addressing translation for insurance providers and/or managed care organizations. Meeting the language translation and interpreting needs of the highly regulated healthcare industry is Global Language Solutions specialty. We have over 20 years of healthcare industry expertise.
Medical translation requires precision and up-to-date technical knowledge by every member of the translation team. It also requires multiple levels of quality control and a full understanding of stringent regulatory laws. Whether translating patient education materials or patient questionnaires, there can be no compromise of language accuracy or quality.
