Professional practices Paulo César Mendes MD, CT endorses's Professional Guidelines.

The accuracy and quality of medical communications have direct and potentially dramatic effects on healthcare. Poor communication can tarnish a company's image, delay regulatory applications, derail a clinical trial, create liability, compromise patient care, or worse.

In choosing a medical translator, you need someone who masters the subject, knows the translation's target audience—the people: their backgrounds, expectations, and how they think—and is capable of writing clear, flowing prose in the target language.

I am medically qualified and trained as a gastroenterologist. For the last seven years, I have worked full time as an English>Portuguese>English translator. Besides my medical background, I have also taken translation courses and earned accreditation in two language pairs by the Brazilian Translators Association and by the American Translators Association. I can bring to bear years of study and experience, both medical and linguistic, to your translation needs.
