How critical are medical translators and interpreters? Imagine having a medical emergency and not being able to understand or communicate with the doctors. What would you do? When a patient and a medical provider have limited ability to communicate in the same language, delivering effective health care services can be very difficult. Medical translators and interpreters play an essential role, facilitating communication between patients and health care providers who write and speak different languages.
