Translation of medical documents

Russian translators experienced in medical translations, including practising physicians

Not only do our translators have broad medical knowledge – many or them are still practising physicians. We translate as small medical documents, such as medical certificates, as sets of medical documents intended to be used by overseas medical institutions.

medical Translation Rates

We quote medical texts based on the number of words in the source file. We offer a fixed rate for short and simple documents, as well as templates. You can use the rates in the table for approximate quotations. However, some documents may cost more if they have been filled in by hand and are hard to read, or if they contain extremely specialized terms.

Common languages
Into Russian
$0,06 per word
From Russian
$0,10 per word
Common languages are the most popular ones (like English, French, German, Spanish etc.). There are lots of Russian translators of these languages, that is why we can offer lower rates.
Rare languages
Into Russian
$0,10 per word
From Russian
$0,15 per word
There are languages that only few translators work with, such as Icelandic, Japanese, or Pashto. We call them rare languages and charge more to translate from or into them.

Responsible approach to translating medical texts

Our goal is to not only deliver high-quality translations, but to maintain original text layout so that the readers would find the translation easy to read and compare with the original document. We assign translators familiar with the subject and able to fact check carefully. Moreover, we take into account any special requests you may have regarding the text.

Self Learning Translator Search Algorythm

Even professionals cannot translate texts of all ranges of topics and genres equally well. We know how to find out who can handle your medical records best.

We collect statistics and select translators by several parameters:

  1. Education in a medical field. Among our translators, there are both medical doctors with extra education in philology and linguists with vocational degree in medicine.
  2. Translation history. We keep stats on number of translated documents, editor's comments and whether the deadlines are met.
  3. Feedback provided by other physicians and customers. Maybe the most important sign of whether the translator knows enough to handle the topic.

All the data are stored in our translation management system. Project managers don't have to guess, they choose from the best matching translators.

Let us know if you need to translate just a part of the document

Sets of medical documents usually contain repetitions like hospital details, advertising information, or any other unrelated text in the file. We can exclude it from translated files at your request.

If you require a certified translation (you may need it for your insurance company to reimburse medical expenses), all the text has to be translated, including addresses, signatures, stamps, and other data. Please mind that we can certify translations in Moscow and Saint-Petersburg only.
Medical documents are often drawn up on letterheads with company details. This is mostly true for German documents; there are names of departments, names of doctors, their contact details and fields of expertise listed along with the exact address and bank details. All that is not likely to be relevant to your physician who is familiar with your document. At your request, we can exclude it from the translation and thereby reduce the costs. In addition, if you are familiar with the contents and interested in translating some paragraphs but not the entire text, you can specify the necessary parts (underline, circle, highlight, explain to us in person, etc.) when you make a request.

Translation will look similar to the original document

We mainly work with the text, but we look after the formatting as well. To be more exact we recreate the original document in another language, even if it has been sent to us as an image.

Such a "recreation" means that the target text layout will be as close as possible to the source file:

  • we will rebuild tables and lists;
  • we will copy the images, photos, and other graphics (not applicable for some file types);
  • if your doctor has underlined or highlighted a particular parameter or recommendation, we will mark such text in the translation too.
