On-demand training MT 102: Medical Translation – Healthcare and Health Insurance

Sep 18 MT 103: The social aspect of healthcare – language difficulties related to disease prevention and education

Description
The healthcare corpus of terms exceeds the medical field when it comes to insurance, medical plans and coverage. Administrative procedures and legal riders come in place, and the translator should be able to deal with each aspect of the source material appropriately. Origins of the source materials, biding regulations and standards and target populations will drive his/her translation decisions in terms of choice of words.

During this presentation, we will briefly cover:

* Concepts related to health care and health insurance
* A quick review of the U.S. Healthcare system
* Some illustrative examples with appropriate Translations (in Spanish)
