Medical interpreters are needed to provide translation services between patients and doctors. Medical interpreters are usually present in the exam rooms with the patient. They must be comfortable discussing sensitive or personal issues, as well as to be able to understand and present information of a scientific or technical nature. The interpreter will help the physician understand the history and physical information from the patient, as well as the symptoms and reason for the patient's visit.
Additionally, an interpreter translates the physician's questions and answers for the patient to understand and respond when necessary. The interpreter may also assist the physician or nurse as a medical assistant would, taking vital signs, updating the patients' medical record, and other minor clinical or administrative duties, but the main focus is the communication.
