Specialized medical documents (medical transcripts, reports, tests, protocols, etc.) are translated and edited by specialists with a background in medicine or the life sciences who have mastery of medical terminology and are native speakers of the target language.

Medical documents for non-specialists are translated and edited by translators who are familiar with such material and are capable of producing an accurate translation that is adapted for the target audience.
