Medical interpreters need words, but its not always easy to find them or to predict the ones youll need for an assignment.
Cynthia Maulen, who has trained interpreters who speak more than fifty different languages, created this terminology workbook to help interpreters prepare for a variety of assignments and certification exams.
The workbook identifies terms used in a variety of medical settings and is arranged by topic, including categories rarely seen in other interpreting texts, such as Abbreviations, U.S. Healthcare Terminology, Medications, and Talking About Pain. You can write in your own translations and create your own glossaryno matter what language youre working in.
Maulen also uses her extensive interpreting knowledge and down-to-earth approach to provide proven guidance on dealing with the challenges youll face on the job as an interpreter.
Whether youre an educator seeking to supplement your curriculum, a student determined to pass an exam, or a professional eager to do the best job you can, youll get the tools you need to accomplish your goals with theTerminology Workbook for Medical Interpreters.
