Medical interpreting service

Qualified NAATI certified interpreters with experience in healthcare and medical interpretation.

Healthcare and medical interpreting

We provide professional interpreter services to hospitals, clinics, medical practitioners in the public & private sectors. Language barriers in the healthcare sector can result in care shortcomings such as incorrect prescriptions or misunderstandings about post-operative care or unnecessary additional appointments.

Our medical interpreters are NAATI certified and knowledgable in medical terminology & settings. Our flexible service delivery options allow us to cater for onsite appointments or remote meetings:

  • Onsite interpreting
  • Telephone interpreting
  • Video remote interpreting (telehealth)

Languages

We cover Australia's migrant & refugee communities languages as well as rare & emergent languages such as Pacific Island languages or African dialects. Our team of Indigenous interpreters can assist you with Aboriginal  & Torres Strait Islands languages.

When required, we assign interpreters fluent in regional language variations i.e Arabic Juba for South Sudan or Latin American Spanish for South America.

Onsite interpreting

While telephone and video interpreting offers short response times in an emergency or when faced with unexpected language barriers, onsite interpreting can be a more appropriate solution for longer appointments that are planned in advance.

This service must be booked in advance, travel charges may apply.

Improving healthcare service delivery for Queensland’s First Nation People

  • Languages: Yumplatok (Torres Strait Islands Creole), Meriam Mir, Kala Laga Ya, Kala Kawaw Ya, Wik Mungkan, Alyawarr
  • Method of interpreting: Onsite, video and telephone

Since 2018, we are the preferred provider of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders languages to Queensland Health Hospitals. It is crucial to provide access to health services in the patient’s own language when there is a communication barrier. This help to improve the service, the customer experience and reduce stay length and the number of appointments needed.

Providing the service for those languages is a challenge because or remote areas and distance but thanks to our 2M lingo platform, the nurses and doctors can access our medical interpreters remotely via video or telephone interpreting when onsite is not an option.
