In this half-day hands-on workshop, we will examine the different types of medical documents commonly translated, and the challenges that each type of document poses. Prior to the workshop you will be provided with two documents which you will need to translate. We will then review the translations and discuss in depth the challenges and solutions.

Please note: the documents provided in advance will be medical texts IN ENGLISH to be translated, in advance, into your target/working language.
