In the United States, research estimates that 25.7 million people have limited English proficiency.

Effective communication in medical settings is vital. Research shows that people who are at higher risk of miscommunication are also more likely to experience medical errors.

As a multi-lingual country, the demand for interpreters in the United States is constantly on the rise. In 2022, over 52,000 interpreters were employed to bridge linguistic barriers.

Frequently asked questions

Medical interpreters are specialized language professionals who facilitate communication between healthcare providers and patients who do not speak the same language. Their primary role is to ensure the accurate exchange of medical information (i.e. medical history, treatment options, and more) between both parties.  

Just like other interpreters, they display excellent proficiency in the languages they speak and demonstrate the ability to interpret between them effectively. For medical interpreters, what sets them apart from other interpreters is that they have a thorough understanding of complex medical processes and terminologies in the medical field, allowing them to navigate through healthcare settings effectively.  

In multilingual nations such as the United States, medical interpreting is increasingly important given that hospitals are dealing with an increased number of limited English speaking patients.  

As an example, there are currently over 57 million Spanish speakers in the United States and this figure is constantly on the rise. Healthcare centers need to be prepared with an effective language access plan since some of their patients may speak Spanish as their primary language.  Failure to communicate effectively may lead to grave medical errors, poor health outcomes, and even legal liability. Medical interpretation is a key element in providing equal access to healthcare for all patients, regardless of the languages they speak. 

In the United States, there is limited certification of medical interpreters. Since interpretation services may come in different language pairs, formal certification isn’t always available for all variations. However, just because a medical interpreter isn’t certified doesn’t mean that they aren’t qualified to do the job. In Boostlingo’s case, our medical interpreters meet the same, rigorous professional requirements, whether certified or not. 

Medical translators focus on written medical documents to accurately translate text from one language to another. On the other hand, medical interpreters work in spoken or sign languages, serving as a conduit between the healthcare provider and the patient as they communicate in real-time.  A medical translator may also become a medical interpreter given that the required skills for both occupations are closely related. However, they are separate professions.  Each has its training requirements and certifications. Just because someone is qualified to translate medical texts does not automatically mean that he or she is qualified to medically interpret a medical consultation or emergency. 

In certain countries, healthcare providers are legally obligated to offer language access services to patients. For the United States, laws such as the Americans with Disabilities Act are in place to ensure that healthcare is accessible to every person regardless of their language proficiency. But whether or not healthcare providers are legally bound to have interpreters, the positive impact of healthcare interpretation services on patient care outcomes should not be overlooked.
