Our method for medical translations

Translavic applies the following process for guaranteeing the quality of its medical translations. All the translators in this process have experience performing medical translations, ensuring the correct medical terms are used. The experience of translators in specific areas of medical expertise is stored in a central database, allowing Translavic’s project managers to easily find the right translator depending on the subject of the text.


1. The translator translates the original source document into his or her mother tongue.

2. A second translator proofreads the medical translation.

3. The Translavic project manager performs a quality check of your project. This ensures that the translation is in line with your objectives, wishes and instructions.

4. If you have any comments or additions after the translated text has been delivered, our linguists will incorporate these into the translation.


We can also take care of the following additional steps for you:

  • Additional review of the target document by a medical specialist whose native language is the target language.
  • Back translation as an additional means for verifying whether the medical translation is correct.
  • Maintaining glossaries with the terminology that you approved.
