The pharmaceutical industry is related to people's life and health, and willing to a wide range of fields. Therefore, professional medical translators should have a deep understanding of the pharmaceutical industry. One of the basic is the translation of medical instructions. Next, I share some notes on translation of medical instructions.
Medical instructions generally include the name, properties, main effects, indications, dosage, precautions, side effects and warning lights of the drug. When translating the medical instructions, it is necessary to understand and master the basic language structure of the drug instructions, understand the characteristics of the translated language, and correctly understand and translate the drug instructions. Pay attention to several points when translating medical instructions.
1. Drug instructions must be accurate, master the knowledge of medicine related fields, flexibly and accurately express another language in one language, rather than simply complete the conversion from one language to another.
2. After mastering the basic knowledge of language and deeply understanding the pharmaceutical industry, the translation of medical instructions should also include the original idea and the language form of the translation, especially faithful to the original text, and the content that can not be translated is not clearly expressed or even wrong, otherwise it will bring people wrong information It is the economic loss, but also related to people's life safety, so the translation of medical instructions must be professional, accurate and rigorous.
3. The translation language of medical instructions should be easy to understand, conform to the standard, scientific and professional, and there should be no illogical and structural confusion. Even small differences in language vocabulary should be expressed in appropriate, accurate and concise words.
The above is the author's summary of the translation of some medical instructions. For more translation information, please pay attention to our website.
