Research in the pharmaceutical/medical field has the potential to have an immense influence on our everyday lives and our society as a whole.

Tongue Tied specialises in the translation of medical and pharmaceutical documentation from and into any language.  We regularly supply translations of medical documentation, such as studies, clinical trials, instruction manuals and information leaflets into most languages for a number of medical organisations.

Microbiology, immunology and biomedicine are just some of the divisions of this interdisciplinary field of science, in which fundamental research is capable of achieving ground-breaking results – whether it is in combating incurable illnesses, studying the nature of viral and bacterial diseases or within the food industry.

Most research companies are already operating globally, hence, the transfer of knowledge in practice and teaching is becoming increasingly more significant – and this presents particular challenges. Different specialist terminology, formed from Latin and Greek, has been developed and the use of this technical language is only generally understood by the participants of the individual disciplines. Not only can language barriers hinder international projects and therefore progress, above all, as with other specialist translation fields there is no scope for error in the medical and pharmaceutical industries.

Someone with no medical background will find it impossible to understand some of the more specific, scientific texts, even if it was written in their mother tongue and without a complete understanding it would be unfeasible to translate such a text into a different language.

This is why Tongue Tied require that all of our medical and pharmaceutical translators have the highest qualifications, have many years of experience and are well informed on the current development in the relevant areas matching the subject matter they translate.

Our medical translators are:

  • All professionally qualified to degree level, Masters or local equivalent
  • Mother-tongue speakers only
  • Based in the country where the translated material will be used
  • Members of local professional bodies
