Medical translation is frequently an asked service of medical interpreters. To help our members and the public at large better understand the issues that relate to medical translations for linguistically diverse populations, the IMIA has published an IMIA Guide on Medical Translation.

There are few standards on hospital related medical translations:

1) Please see the MDPH Translation Guidelines, by Jordan Coriza 

2) Please purchase the ASTM Standard Guide for Quality in Translation at http://www.astm.org/Standards/F2575.htm (download cost of $43)

3) IMIA Guide on Medical Translation, by Rocio Txabarriaga, MA
