Dear All,

I have been a translator and interpreter for now 20 years, and do do quite a bit of medical work, amongst other work.

A colleague advised I should join 'MEDNET' (the Medical group/network) on Proz, to get translation and interpreting work in the medical field (especially interpreting, as there is apparently a lot of demand in interpreting).

I have asked a Proz agent, but she was unable to advise as to where to find 'MEDNET', unfortunately, and I

Dear All,

A colleague advised I should join 'MEDNET' (the Medical group/network) on Proz, to get translation and interpreting work in the medical field (especially interpreting, as there is apparently a lot of demand in interpreting).

I have asked a Proz agent, but she was unable to advise as to where to find 'MEDNET', unfortunately, and I was wondering whether any of you could help.

Thanks in advance and

Best wishes,

No, there is no such forum or translation group on ProZ.com that I know of. It may be a private subforum (only members of a private subforum can see the private subforum), but generally a subforum won't help connect you to clients. There are a few "medical" translator groups (a little-known feature of ProZ.com, with dismally poor UI design), but none of them bigger than 2 or 3 translators. The best thing would be to ask you colleague to send you a link to the group.

ITIMedNet? Jul 4, 2019

Hi Fabienne,
are you sure it is in Proz? They probably meant https://www.itimedical.co.uk/ (MedNet). You don't need to be an ITI member to join the group. The annual fee is very low (£15/year). I am a medical translator too and I have been a member for three years now. I find it very useful, both for terminological help and for information about potential customers. They also organise very interestin

Hi Fabienne,
are you sure it is in Proz? They probably meant https://www.itimedical.co.uk/ (MedNet). You don't need to be an ITI member to join the group. The annual fee is very low (£15/year). I am a medical translator too and I have been a member for three years now. I find it very useful, both for terminological help and for information about potential customers. They also organise very interesting seminars, mainly in UK, so I would recommend it, if you are based in UK. See you there?

Hope it helps,
Maria Luisa

Linkedin? Jul 4, 2019

Maybe it is a Linkedin group. Proz has a platform there too.

On the other hand, you can find Mednet on the internet, see https://www.mednet.nl/

I wonder if your colleague was referring to the so-called Proz.com pools and more specifically to the Pharmaceutical pool?
