Therefore, effective communication has not become a challenge. Translation is crucial for communication and exchange of information between two different languages and cultures. In the healthcare field the need for competent translators crucial since it involves a person’s health and overall well-being. Proper diagnosis and treatment is difficult when doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals are unable to speak the same language as the patient.
