Due to the success of the Polish interpretation of the standard medical terms we have now decided to get the Urdu translation. scratch

Please find below a list of standard medical terms. As per the email sent to you, please provide your own translation for these terms as we are hoping to come up with a standard document in several languages.

The Medical terms we require to be translated are listed in bold on the left hand side of the page and there is a definition next to some in brackets should you need further clarification on what it actually means in English.

Please feel free to post a comment on the forum if you need any help as that is what it is here for!! As you will see from the Polish translation discussion, there are a discussions and debates going on at the moment. bom

Unfortunately there is no option of uploading a file on to the forum as yet so you can either post your translations on here or you can email a copy back to us at the office (for the attention of Jenny ) Please bear in mind that if you post your translations onto the forum, it gives others the opportunity to comment and correct any errors which is the whole point of this exercise!
