Abstract

This book is based on the very popular international publication (Crezee, 2013) and has been supplemented with Chinese glossaries. Just like the 2013 textbook, this practical resource will allow interpreters and translators to quickly read up on healthcare settings, familiarizing themselves with anatomy, physiology, medical terminology and frequently encountered conditions, diagnostic tests and treatment options.

It is an exceptionally useful and easily accessible handbook, in particular for English-speaking patients, Chinese-speaking doctors, and first language Chinese-speaking students in healthcare related programs.

This book includes special comments on the medical system in some English- and Chinese-speaking countries and gives concrete examples of patient expectations for hospital stays or physician visits. Also included is information regarding the establishment of some health interpreting services, the nature of Chinese medical terminology and specific culture-related concepts to be aware of.

Subjects: Interpreting; Translation studies; Sino-Tibetan languages
