Communicate your medical history and needs clearly, wherever you go, with HTH's Medical Translation Guides.

Patients who require medical attention in foreign countries may have trouble communicating their past medical history, understanding proposed diagnostic tests or treatments, and even requesting basic care such as a bath or a medication for pain. Standard translation books and software may overlook medical terms such as "CT Scan" and "Adnexitis" and can be difficult to use when you're sick.

The Medical Phrase database contains more than 100 phrases in English, Arabic, Chinese (simplified), French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish. Each phrase is of use to a patient seeking medical care, or a hospitalized patient, such as "I have pain here" and "When can I travel?". The database can be printed and, because of its focus on health related phrases, used easily by a patient who doesn't feel well enough to consult a more complex translation guide.

The Medical Term database contains more than 600 medical terms and their common equivalents (such as pharyngitis and it's equivalent -- sore throat). These terms can be translated into English, Arabic, Chinese (simplified), French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish.

Translation can be performed in a multi-directional fashion -- from English to French, Portuguese to English, French to Portuguese, etc. Anyone who speaks one of the included languages can use the Translation Guides.
