What is a translation certificate of accuracy?

A certificate of accuracy is a signed statement that attests to the accuracy of the translation. The translation certificate of accuracy will typically be printed on a company letterhead and will be signed by the Quality manager of the translation company.

Why is a certificate of translation accuracy required?

When a translation is required for official purposes, like in a clinical trial study or for submission to a federal agency, proof must be made that the translation was done professionally and accurately. The translation accuracy certificate represents that proof. Typically, the translation certificate of accuracy will be attached to the translation, together with the translation company’s quality certificate (e.g., ISO 17100:2015 certificate).

Maintenance of Medical Documents

Some medical documents are updated frequently, several times a year in some cases. This is especially true of medical device manuals, IFUs and clinical trial documents like Informed Consents and clinical protocols. In order to provide fast turnaround and cost-effective translation of updates, we maintain translation memories for all translated documents. Using translation memories allows us to determine exactly what has changed since the last version was published, and only translate the new material and the changes.

Can you use Google Translate for medical translation?

Google Translate, along with other machine translation programs such as DeepL and Microsoft, have become considerably better in recent years. However, it is not recommended that you use such tools for medical translation. Any more than you would use Google to replace your medical doctor. When dealing with life-and-death matter, even a slight error can have dire consequences. Additionally, many organizations which you are submitting the medical translation to, like hospitals and IRBs, will require a signed translation certificate. This cannot be provided by Google.
