Translating and Reviewing Medical Texts Based on Specialized Terminology

February 13 / 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm EST

Embark on a journey into the intricacies of specializing in life sciences!

Specializing in life sciences demands an in-depth grasp of crucial medical terminology, enabling the creation of content with the right precision and technical nuances for the scientific community, yet maintaining simplicity and relevance for the general audience. Linguistic intricacies, such as polysemy, animal metaphors, eponymic terms, and the use of Greek/Latin roots, prefixes, and suffixes, entail not only linguistic but also cultural considerations, presenting an inevitable terminological challenge for linguists. Correctly addressing this challenge is vital to ensuring efficient communication. In this webinar, the presenter will guide you through a systematic analysis of terminology, empowering you to activate and deliver correct, culturally relevant renderings.

In this webinar, you will learn to:

  1. Navigate specialized terminology using etymology as a translation resource.
  2. Identify and apply the appropriate rendering for polysemic terms.
  3. Prevent common translation errors associated with specialized terminology.
  4. Profile audiences based on health literacy levels and make precise terminology choices to enhance your skills in translation.
