In the healthcare industry, there is no room for errors. Just one simple mistranslation or misinterpretation could entirely change the meaning of a diagnosis or critical research, preventing someone from understanding a health professional’s or researchers instructions, putting an individual’s health at risk. Medical language and instructions can often be complex and require a deeper level of professional understanding.
