Specialized Medical Conference Interpreters from ELIT Language Services
Medical conference interpreting is a very demanding process. It requires substantial knowledge of medical topics, not merely familiarity with medical terminology. Health professionals need to use the medical sector’s ‘dialect’ in order to be able to participate effectively in a conference or seminar. Knowledge of statistics is often vital. The speakers are well prepared and often speak very fast.
For these reasons, the teams of interpreters are reinforced with an additional interpreter, and even greater importance is attached to the management of conference documents, in order for these to be made promptly available to the interpreters so that they can study them.
ELIT Language Services features the only team of medical interpreters in Greece, with over three decades of experience in medical conference interpretation.
