Health care interpreters are bilingual individuals trained in interpretation skills and medical terminology who facilitate communication between people speaking different languages in health care settings. The occupation involves listening and understanding meaning in one language and attempting to reproduce the most equivalent meaning possible in another language.

Health care interpreting is an emerging discipline as health care settings seek to more accurately comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act and Title VI of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. Health care interpreters are trained to understand their professional role and adhere to a code of ethics while transmitting messages accurately and completely.
