Translation Might Save Your Life

This title could as easily create a book, but the fact is that translation might have saved your life, save you life in the future or improve your quality of life.


Translation improves communication and this allows medical knowledge to be transferred. This knowledge has helped the unborn child through to the terminally ill. Medical translation is often a part of the medical development process.

Translation improves health and safety. The translation of manuals, training material and good practice may allow equipment to be used more safely.

Translation allows new technology to be adopted. This might be the translation of news articles informing people of the new technology, the translation of sales documents or simply the installation and users manuals. This new technology might improve safety in ways you are unaware of.

Translation helps with technology and technology improves our quality of life. As example, the Wright Brothers might not have been the first to achieve powered flight if they had been unable to follow the accounts of German gliding pioneer, Otto Lilienthal. Our holiday’s might be different if flight had been delayed another 50 years.

This is a short introduction to this subject, but the fact is that translation is a key part knowledge sharing. Knowledge helps improve our survival and the quality of the time that we have. Translation should be recognised for the part it plays.
