All about the Medical Diagnosis Interpreter

When in need of medical assistance, receiving treatment or in the event of an emergency, getting help is crucial. Communicating your current state of health, allergies or pre-existing medical conditions quickly to a medical professional can be a matter of life and death. This situation can worsen when travelling and speaking to non-native English speakers. Medically trained individuals can provide you with the urgent care you need but who might be struggling to understand what is being explained to them. To help you in this situation, we created the Medical Diagnosis Interpreter (MDI).

The MDI is an innovative way in which you only need to point or mark how you think and feel, using the many illustrations and translated terms. The tool enables the medical professional to use what is being shown to them to help them diagnose any underlining problems. The MDI is grouped in logical sections. Some can be completed before seeking medical attention (sections A, B, C, D and H). The remaining sections can be used during an emergency (sections E, F and G).

All vital information is needed to help the medical professional make an informed diagnosis. A diagnosis will ultimately help treat the condition, virus or illness.

A successful diagnosis typically requires three elements of crucial information:

  • Details of any pains, conditions or symptoms you have been experiencing, what hurts, where and for how long
  • Any medications you have already taken and how long ago
  • Any allergies, pre-existing conditions and important information about you to help with the diagnosis and treatment
Knowing the local emergency telephone numbers is crucial, whether at home or abroad. The Gayther guide not only provides the various telephone numbers for the emergency services worldwide but also common phrases in the native language
When travelling, as a non-native speaker of a language or when you cannot speak, communicating how you think and feel to a medical practitioner can be challenging. The medical diagnosis interpreter, also known as the MDI, is a free click and point solution where you can use literal translations for up to 89 different languages
