The health care industry is one of the main consumers of Spanish translation produced in Argentina, and the demand is expected to increase as of the second half of 2008. </font> </p> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"><br /> </p> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"><font face="Tahoma, sans-serif">Even though translation for the health care area is generally well known, Hispano Language Advisory believes that more training on this specific area will help meet the tight deadlines imposed by regulations for this industry, while preserving the quality that differentiates our translations.</font></p> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"> </p> <br /> <br /> <h2 class="western">Purpose</h2> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"><font face="Tahoma, sans-serif">Through this seminar, Hispano Language Advisory seeks to have access to numerous resources specifically trained in the health care field for translation and editing. </font> </p> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"><br /> </p> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"><font face="Tahoma, sans-serif">After the seminar, students and recently graduated translators will have insight and valued practice in this area. Experienced translators and editors will also benefit from this continuing education opportunity. </font> </p> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"><br /> </p> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"><font face="Tahoma, sans-serif"><br /> </font></p> <br /> <h2 class="western">Attendees</h2> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"><font face="Tahoma, sans-serif">This seminar is for graduate free-lance translators and editors, and university students in their senior year in Translation. Staff translators and editors from translation companies are also welcome. </font> </p> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"><br /> </p> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"><br /> </p> <br /> <h2 class="western">Learning Objectives</h2> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"><font face="Tahoma, sans-serif">Attendees will learn about the health care system in the United States, understand the legislations involved, the populations affected, and the roles and objectives of health care companies. They will also have intensive workshop practice in common errors in translation, specific client preferences, and regional differences among the Hispanic populations. Finally, attendees will have a unique opportunity to ask questions and learn from a health care consultant joining us via video conference from the United States, who will answer questions regarding the identity and objectives of the translation buyers -the health care companies/state plans- and the needs of the translation users -the Hispanic populations.</font></p> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"><br /> </p> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"><font face="Tahoma, sans-serif">Free-lance translators completing this seminar will have a unique opportunity to gain skills in translation for the health care field and to update their profile. The demand for these skills is expected to increase as of the second half of 2008. Don’t miss this opportunity!!</font></p> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"> </p> <br /> <br /> <h1 style="page-break-before: always;" class="western">PROGRAM</h1> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"><br /> </p> <h3 class="western">Health Care 101</h3> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"><br /> </p> <ul> <li> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"><font face="Tahoma, sans-serif">Kinds of health insurance</font></p> </li> <li> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"><font face="Tahoma, sans-serif">Federal and state plans: Medicare, Medicaid, Medi-Cal</font></p> </li> <li> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"><font face="Tahoma, sans-serif">Health care companies: HMO, PPO</font></p> </li> <li> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"><font face="Tahoma, sans-serif">Health plans: kinds of benefits (medical, prescriptions, dental, vision, mental, long-term care, etc.)</font></p> </li> <li> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"><font face="Tahoma, sans-serif">Coverage/gaps in coverage for: </font> </p> <ul> <li> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"><font face="Tahoma, sans-serif">Employees (group and individual plans)</font></p> </li> <li> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"><font face="Tahoma, sans-serif">The unemployed</font></p> </li> <li> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"><font face="Tahoma, sans-serif">Senior/special needs citizens </font> </p> </li> </ul> </li> <li> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"><font face="Tahoma, sans-serif">Interaction between private plans and state plans: Medicare supplement, Medicare Advantage, the “donut hole,” etc.</font></p> </li> <li> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"><font face="Tahoma, sans-serif">Health care costs: HMO, PPO, prescriptions, claims, reimbursements, etc.</font></p> </li> <li> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"><font face="Tahoma, sans-serif">Language Assistance</font></p> </li> </ul> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"><br /> </p> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"><br /> </p> <h3 class="western">Translation Workshop</h3> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"><br /> </p> <ul> <li> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"><font face="Tahoma, sans-serif">Kinds of documents: With “enrollee specific” information/Standard</font></p> <ul> <li> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"><font face="Tahoma, sans-serif">Applications</font></p> </li> <li> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"><font face="Tahoma, sans-serif">Consent forms</font></p> </li> <li> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"><font face="Tahoma, sans-serif">Letters containing important information regarding eligibility and participation criteria</font></p> </li> <li> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"><font face="Tahoma, sans-serif">Notices pertaining the denial, reduction, modification or termination of services and benefits, right to file a grievance or appeal</font></p> </li> <li> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"><font face="Tahoma, sans-serif">Notices advising of free language assistance or interpreting services</font></p> </li> <li> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"><font face="Tahoma, sans-serif">Marketing materials</font></p> </li> <li> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"><font face="Tahoma, sans-serif">Evidence of coverage</font></p> </li> <li> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"><font face="Tahoma, sans-serif">Explanation of benefits</font></p> </li> <li> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"><font face="Tahoma, sans-serif">Claim forms (into English)</font></p> </li> <li> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"><font face="Tahoma, sans-serif">Grievances and appeals (into English)</font></p> </li> </ul> </li> </ul> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"><br /> </p> <ul> <li> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"><font face="Tahoma, sans-serif">Back translation</font></p> </li> <li> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"><font face="Tahoma, sans-serif">Attestation</font></p> </li> <li> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"><font face="Tahoma, sans-serif">Transcreation</font></p> </li> <li> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"><font face="Tahoma, sans-serif">Client preferences: Glossaries and style guides</font></p> </li> </ul> <br /> <h3 class="western">Q&A session</h3> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"> </p> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"><font face="Tahoma, sans-serif">These are some examples of the kinds of questions that may probably be asked during this 1-hour session.
