It can be said that the most important skill in interpreting is to know what you are talking about. Interpreting, rendering a term from one language to another, by itself is simple. It’s easy to learn the terms and how to say them in another language, however, understanding what they mean is important. Dermatology is one of the most intriguing specialties with variations of a single term as well as terms that mean the simplest things. This presentation will help clarify some of the most common terms and their definitions to help the interpreter when in a dermatology session. Understanding some of the disease processes will help prepare the medical interpreter for the encounter.
