The Academic Medical Centre in Amsterdam
Provision of medical interpreting and translation services from Dutch into English for the purposes of reaccreditation of the AMC based on the JCI’s Continual Improvement programme.
Three specialist interpreters were needed for a period of five days to enable communication between the American accreditation team and the AMC employees involved. In addition, dozens of documents of procedural descriptions of a medical nature had to be translated from Dutch into English.
The AVB project manager assigned to the project scoured our database for experienced interpreters with an extremely good command of both English and Dutch as well as in-depth medical knowledge. These interpreters accompanied the JCI accreditors for five days in Amsterdam and ensured flawless communication with the AMC employees involved. In addition, a total of 500 pages of mainly procedural descriptions was translated from Dutch into English by a specialist medical translator. This major assignment was delivered within the client’s specified time frame and the quality met the high standards required.
