Commentary
Doctor's Patients Are Interpreter's Patients, Too

Listen Now [3 min 50 sec]

All Things Considered, November 22, 2008 · In towns and cities across the United States there are patients who do not speak English. Whether they're sick, in labor or going in for an annual check-up, they rely on people like commentator Nataly Kelly.

For years, Kelly worked as a telephone interpreter. She shares highlights of what it's like to be the voice of the patient and the doctor, or the dispatcher, the social worker or the benefits coordinator.

Her essay appeared originally in the journal Health Affairs.

All Things Considered, November 22, 2008 · Living in America, it's easy to forget that most of the world does not speak English; and that much of the world's literature is not written in English. In order for us to read the best of what the rest of the world writes — and in order for the rest of the world to experience our best literature — skilled writers must work in the art of translation.
