IMIA Publishes Guide for Medical Translation

The International Medical Interpreters Association (IMIA) was founded in 1986 and is the largest medical interpreting organization in the United States.

The objective of the IMIA Guide on Medical Translation is to provide an easy to use set of translation guidelines for those in the medical field. The guide was written by 18 year veteran medical translator, Rocio Txabarriaga, as an “FAQ” type of document for quick consultation by people who wish to learn the best practices for procuring medical translation services.
