Translating words in their literal sense takes a lot of time and effort, yet translating passages with a specific culture in mind is a different story. Those training to become translators and even experienced translators face the challenge of translating words and phrases that are heavily grounded in one culture, verbal or otherwise. Much has been said about the best workaround methods for this challenge, be it through paraphrasing, using the nearest local equivalent, or coining a new word altogether through a literal translation. Even today, translating cultural-bound words, phrases, and references continue to fascinate and challenge translators and translation companies everywhere.

With the nation growing more diverse every year, the need for translation services continues to grow as well, particularly in the medical field. Hospitals and health care providers are now being required to provide foreign language interpreters, since a growing amount of research shows that communication has a direct effect on patient safety. The same holds true for manufacturers of medical products or medical devices. With the complexity of these devices, including robotics and prostheses, manufacturers are in need of multi-language translation services capable of incorporating industry-specific and technically accurate terminology into their documentation, websites, and computer software. Why It Matters Manufacturers selling their products in other countries must have a thorough understanding of the domestic requirements of a particular targeted country.
