Free Dispatch of Medical Interpreters in 2018

May 10, 2018 Posted in Information

To many foreigners, the Japanese spoken in hospitals is very hard to understand.
Trouble can sprout from not just differences in language, but also in customs, culture, religion, and more.

Here at KIA, we have been dispatching medical interpreters, who have both interpretation skills and high knowledge of the medical field, in order to facilitate smoother communication between foreign patients and medical staff.

Requests for interpreters may only be made by medical facilities.
If you require an interpreter, please contact KIA using the following details.

■ Target: Medical facilities in the City of Kitakyushu

■ Free period: April 1st, 2018 to March 31st, 2019

■ Available languages: English, Chinese, Korean
     *For other languages, please contact us.

■ Using the service: The medical facility must register need for an interpreter in advance.

■ Contact: Kitakyushu International Association
