Medical Terminology for Interpreters

One-day Workshop

February 6, 2019


Understand medical terminology and develop strategies to interpret correctly!

If you ask a medical interpreter about his or her biggest challenge, perhaps the most common answer you’ll hear is “medical terminology.” Medical terminology is essential for general, community and medical interpreters. The precision of an interpreter’s work in medical matters relies heavily on terminology.

Medical Terminology for Interpreters is a one-day, seven-hour workshop open to interpreters of any language. (There will be a special focus on Spanish).
