Simultaneous interpretation in Almaty. Conference interpreters and spoken translators in Almaty

Medical interpreter by the Bridging the Gaps Translation Center in at a large-scale medical conference in Almaty.

 

The month of September was marked with another significant event in the life of the medical community in Kazakhstan. The regular V International Congress Central Asian Gastroenterological Week-2017 was held in Almaty.

For four years back-to-back, our conference interpreter named Yerlan gets invited to render spoken translation services at this event. This is because Yerlan has unique set of skills both in conference interpreting and medical sciences.

 

 

 

Three intense days of medical translation. The most exciting moments of the translation, and extremely difficult, when a spoken translator has to overextend himself to understand what is it that is being conveyed to the audience, when the sound from the microphone is full of interfering noises, the acoustics is not there, the speaker’s English is not quiet good.

 

And sometimes two speakers deliver speech back-to-back, and the client wants one interpreter to do the translation for whatever reason.

 

So our interpreter sometimes had to interpret for an hour and a half without a pause. And it is no secret simultaneous translators routinely alternate every 20 minutes.

 

But the BG translation agency’s interpeters are so experienced that the medical interpreter was ready for the challenge and brilliantly coped with the task in specialized medical translation English to Russian and Russian to English.

 

The BG translation agency has translators with medical background. When there are medical conferences, our interpreters are there to do the job. And this greatly contributes to the success of such events.

 

 

If you are planning an event and you need highly qualified medical translators, we will be happy to help you!

Spoken interpretation during the re-accreditation of the National Cardiac Surgery Research Center in Astana

BG medical interpreters rendered spoken interpretation services during the JCI accreditation (Joint Commission International) of the National Cardiac Surgery Research Center in Astana.

The accreditation was carried out September the 18th through September  the 22nd , 2017 in Astana.

Medical interpreters Mariya, Dina and Yerlan translated consecutively English to Russian and Russian to English during the accreditation.

The client was very pleased with the spoken interpreters. The client pointed out that during the first accreditation back in 2014 they were presented with no-so-good interpreting. It was difficult for staff to understand what the surveyors really meant during their interviews. This time around there was clear understanding of what the surveyors had in mind, explaining some of the requirements of the JCI standards. And this all thanks to the quality and experience of our medical translators we have in Astana.

For example, the medical interpreter Mariya translated at accreditations of healthcare organizations by JCI standards eight times in a row.

Medical interpreter Yerlan translated during the accreditation of healthcare organizations by JCI standards for the eleventh time.

Medical interpreter Dina once worked on developing and implementing healthcare accreditation standards.

Such a makeup of spoken medical translators was the very success formula for the event to go smoothly with translation.

The topic of this event was medical and administrative.

Areas covered during the accreditation included:

Section I. Standards related to patients:

  • International Patient Safety Objectives
  • Access to Care and Continuity of Care
  • PFR – Patient and Family Rights
  • AOP – Assessment of Patients
  • COP – Care of Patients
  • ASC – Anestesia and Surgical Care
  • MMU – Medication Management and Use
  • PFE – Patient and Family Education

Section II. Standards management of medical organization:

  • QPS – Quality and Patient Safety
  • PCI – Prevention and Control of Infection
  • GLD – Governance, Leadership and Direction
  • FMS – Facility Management and Safety
  • SQE – Staff Qualifications and Education
  • MCI – Management and Communication of Information

 

Incidentally, the Cardiosurgical Center passed the accreditation with flying colors and deservedly received the gold standard of quality and patient safety. Way to go!
