Medical Terminology for Interpreters and Translators - Chinese (Mandarin)

Mandarin Specific Medical Terminology Workshop offers an opportunity for interpreters/translators to learn how to navigate medical terminology in an easy and smart way.

Description

Learning Medical Terminology can seem like a daunting task at first. It could, in fact, be like learning a whole other language. In reality, memorising all of the words in a medical dictionary may prove to be impossible.

Do not fear! There is a simple way to learn and understand Medical Terminology. Most words are simply a combination of different parts or elements. In this workshop, you will learn the common roots, prefixes, and suffixes of medical terminology and how to use this knowledge to help you navigate complicated medical language for your interpreting and translating assignments.

This workshop is designed for new interpreters and translators and experienced interpreters and translators looking to refresh their knowledge of medical terminology.

The workshop includes a Medical Terminology workbook, including a glossary that you can take home.

This workshop will be conducted in Mandarin.
