Interpreting In Orthopedics & The Fundamentals Of Vocabulary

Interpreting is not something that should be taken lightly. With medical interpreting your clientele is paying for a high . When customers pay someone to handle things for them, it's because the other person is an expert in that field. Just because bilingual adults are fluent in 2 languages, doesn't make them an expert interpreter. Sure, knowing both languages is a definite start in the career, it doesn't make you a medical interpreter.

Imagine you are a 19 year old college student in your third year of medical school. You are walking one day and you witness a car accident. You can clearly see a passenger has glass in their face. Other witnesses are talking about pulling the shards out themselves... but you know better. You don't have any surgical knowledge, no sterile tools with you, and your medical studies taught you that pulling it out could cause more damage. Like infection, blood clotting or excess and unnecessary blood loss or nerve damage.

Your knowledge of medicine helps you calm the victims down until paramedics arrive. You were able to check vital signs and keep onlookers away. Because you knew you weren't expert the situation called for, you were able to help in other ways. It is the same expertise that separates bilingual adults from medical interpreters. Medical interpreters have dedicated time, and effort into highly specialized areas of language for professional services. Bilingual adults have learned both languages, but haven't spent the time and energy to understand medical language.
