MEDICAL AND MEDICO-TECHNICAL TEXTS
Medical translations: There are two groups
There are basically two different main groups of publications where medical translations are concerned. On the one hand, we have medical informational materialand, on the other, we havetexts of purelymedico-technical nature.
For both groups the key point is to convey the content of the source text as close as possible. Where medical translations are involved, there is no room for a translator’s interpretation of what is written.
