How medical translation can help during COVID-19
Covid-19 (Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2) is a virus that first appeared in China in 2019. The virus belongs to the family of coronaviruses which mainly affect certain mammals or birds and normally only cause mild colds in humans. However, viruses can change (mutate) and adapt to new circumstances. Experts try to predict mutations in the normal flu viruses and begin to develop vaccines before the new flu season that protect against the most likely changes. So how can medical translation help during this pandemic?

back translations
Why are back translations used in medicine?
You might not know what ‘back translation’ is and how it is used in medicine, but at some point you will undoubtedly have worked with a document that has undergone a back translation, for example in areas such as clinical trials, pharma documents and research study protocols. In short, a back translation allows you to compare the translation with the original text to check for quality and accuracy, helping you to assess whether the meaning is the same in both the source and target texts. Back translations are used in many sectors but their main use is in medicine, typically being used by medical device companies and also pharmaceutical companies. If the content is of high value, it is often necessary to have a back translation.
