Spanish Medical Translation vs. Spanish Medical Interpretation: What’s The Difference?

Interpretation and translation are two distinct terms that are often used interchangeably.

Interpreters facilitate communication between people who don’t speak the same language while translators convert written content from one language to another.

self-care for interpreters

Spanish interpreters allow patients and healthcare professionals to communicate with each other naturally during consultations or emergencies.

Spanish translators ensure that patient information forms, consent waivers, and certain business and legal documents can be read and understood.

Why Spanish Medical Translation and Interpretation Matters

The Hispanic Community accounts for 19% of the United States population.

In the United States, it’s estimated that there are over 57 million Spanish speakers.

In the United States, about 41.7 million people have Spanish as their primary language.

Frequently asked questions

Spanish medical translators focus on converting written documents such as medical reports, patient information forms, and consent waivers. They are trained to construct accurate Spanish translations of medical documents in English and vice versa. On the other hand, Spanish medical interpreters facilitate spoken communication between patients and healthcare providers so that both parties can understand each other fully.  

Both occupations have the same goal of overcoming language barriers but are distinct professions with different training, certifications, and specializations. Translators may be qualified to analyze and reformulate documents but are only fit to interpret real-time discussions if they have received training.

Likewise, interpreters are trained to facilitate communication and navigate cultural differences between parties but may only be qualified to translate sensitive documents with the necessary certifications.  

Moreover, it’s important to understand each interpretation setting has its own complexities. A professional translator that specializes in the medical field may not be qualified to produce legal translations if he or she has not received training in that setting. Since the legal field is filled with complex terms and jargon, translating documents without proper training can lead to miscommunication.

The cost of a Spanish medical interpreters can greatly depend on the provider but in most cases, it is usually calculated by the minutes of interpretation provided. In Boostlingo’s case, we believe that language barriers should never deter patient care and so we’re proud to share that our rates are 20% lower than the industry standard!

Spanish medical interpreters facilitate discussions between patients (and their accompanying persons) and hospital staff. They ensure that individuals from Latin America, Spain, and other regions that have Spanish as one of their native languages can express themselves fully and naturally. 

In the healthcare setting, miscommunication can lead to grave outcomes, and it’s the primary duty of Spanish medical interpreters to ensure that native speakers of Spanish patients can fully understand and exchange medical information.

Failure to overcome language barriers in healthcare can greatly deter treatment and compromise a patient’s well-being. If your hospital is in an area with a large Spanish-speaking population, having a Spanish medical interpreter (either onsite or through an on-demand language access plan) will ensure that your staff can effectively communicate with them. Additionally, acquiring a Spanish translation service will also help you provide language support at every step of the patient’s journey.

As your patients review important medical forms, Spanish document translation will enable your patients to fully understand a medical document’s contents.

For hospitals in the United States, Laws such as Title VI of the Civil Rights Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act have been passed to ensure that anyone can access healthcare services regardless of their English proficiency. All healthcare centers, especially those that regularly cater to Latin Americans and other members of the Hispanic community, must always have Spanish translation and interpretation services within reach.
