Interpreter Services provides trained, professional Medical Interpreters to all Michigan Medicine hospitals and clinics.
25 Million Americans have Limited English Proficiency
Professional interpreters can mean the difference between life and death. We must provide meaningful access to services by making reasonable accommodations which will minimize risks and result in positive outcomes.
The service, available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, is free of charge to both patients and providers within our health system.
The Intpreter Services department strives to provide in-person interpreters for at least 80% of our appointment requests in our top 8 languages. They receive over 2,000 in-person Interpreter requests per month and have over 75 interpreters speaking more than 15 languages.

What is the difference between Interpreting and Translating?
Interpreting involves oral and manual communication from one language to another. Translation is the process of transferring written text from one language to another.
After watching the video of Miley Cyrus using google translate, we hope you understand why utilizing tools like google translate is not an acceptable way to communicate with a patient or translate important health information. Why?
In general, machine translation is not accurate.
Among several synonyms, the software will choose the commonest.
While interpreting/translating, we are transferring meaning, not words. Context is crucial.
We need to think of patient safety. Handing a patient a document that you do not know what it says can result in a serious medical error.
The use of any type of translation software IS NOT acceptable.
