Timely Tips

Determining the most appropriate interpreter for each medical case involves a careful selection process. This may come down to whether the medical interpreter is male or female and not only speaks the same language but also the same dialect. For example, there are many varieties of the Arabic language (dialects or otherwise) in existence within five regional forms. Some varieties of Arabic in North Africa, for example, are incomprehensible to an Arabic speaker from the Levant or the Persian Gulf. Another important factor to check in advance is that the interpreter has had no previous contact with the patient: in certain close-knit Somalian communities, patients will fear disclosing any facts to a medical interpreter, who turns out to be his neighbor, in case they become widely known in their communities.
