Frequently asked questions about medical translations
Yes, among the specialized translators we use there are also doctors with a mother tongue other than German. However, most of our specialized translators are medical or medical technology translators who have studied medicine or attended advanced training in medical fields. Some have specialized in medical topics out of self-interest and have several years of practical experience as translators in their fields.
Most medical translations we offer cost about the same as in other specialties such as law, electrical engineering or finance. The prices depend on the language combination and the volume of the texts to be translated. Existing translations or repetitions within the text are taken into account when calculating the volume of the text. Any additional tasks such as the translation of graphics or the subtitling of videos are included in the cost calculation.
Yes. This standard is entitled Medical devices – Quality management systems – Requirements for regulatory purposes.

Translators with expertise for the medical industry
For translations in the field of medicine and medical technology, existing expertise in the industry is extremely important. Therefore, the translators of D.O.G. GmbH have not only linguistic qualifications, but also a high level of expertise in the respective fields.
Of course, our translators, with some exceptions, are not practicing physicians. Nevertheless, they have a sound general medical education, covering topics such as human anatomy, physiology and pharmacology. They then specialize in individual topics and text types.
In doing so, they know the relevant terminology, abbreviations and acronyms. They are able to recognize that AC means acromioclavicular joint, or rather stands for shoulder corner joint. They know which databases and nomenclatures are relevant to their subjects.
Our translators are regularly checked for their professional qualifications. As a service company that has been audited several times, D.O.G. GmbH can prove that the specialist qualifications of the translators and internal staff are available in accordance with the ISO 17100 standard.
Only translators who translate into their native language are used.
Your texts in different formats
You can give us your content in a variety of formats. We can take data from content management systems or editorial systems such as Schema ST4 or TIM-RS and return it to you in such a way that it can be imported directly into your respective system. This eliminates the additional step of preparing the data on your side.
If necessary, our DTP department adapts the layout of the translated files to the specifics of the target language: different text lengths, encodings, right-to-left languages such as Hebrew or Arabic and much more.
We can process special formats and encodings. From machine texts, software messages to PO or TEX files. Of course, if required, we make sure that display texts do not exceed the specified length – whether in characters or pixels.
Given the sensitivity of much of the information (including patient-related information) involved in medical translation, the highest possible level of confidentiality is required. We guarantee this contractually both for our company and for all employees involved in the translation process.
