When you’re a doctor, it’s important to be able to communicate with your patients. But even if someone doesn’t speak English as their first language, there are ways you can help them communicate better and make sure they understand what you’re saying. One way is using Google Translate on the computer or mobile device in conjunction with an EMR (electronic medical record). This article will explain how Google Translate works and how it can help make communication easier between healthcare providers—and among themselves!
How can you understand your patients who don’t speak English?
If you’re a doctor, the words of your patients can be difficult to understand. After all, they may not have been able to attend medical school and practice medicine in English as a second language (ESL).
If you want to help your ESL patients understand what’s happening during an appointment with you, there are a few ways that Google Translate can help:
- You can use Google Translate as a tool for translating text or speech into another language. This is especially helpful if one person needs help understanding what the other person is saying while they’re speaking at an appointment or clinic visit.
- It’s also possible for two people with different native languages—or even just one person who speaks both—to speak through speakers connected via Bluetooth so that everyone understands each other clearly despite any translation issues related with one another’s accents or dialects! However, this method tends not work very well due mostly because it requires two devices instead than just one…so don’t expect miracles here 🙂 But still fun nonetheless 🙂
Remember that the purpose of Google Translate is to give you a general idea of what the other person is trying to communicate.
Google Translate is not a perfect system. It’s not meant to replace human translators, and it will never be able to translate every word or phrase in the world into another language.
But with the right context, Google Translate can be helpful in some situations: if you’re looking for an idea of what someone else might have said (like if they didn’t say everything they wanted), or if you need something translated quickly so that you can get back on track with your work.
Using a screen translator in an electronic medical record (EMR)
The benefits of using Google Translate to translate patient information in an EMR are many. First and foremost, it helps you understand your patients better. If a patient has trouble understanding what you have written down in their chart, they can click on the link that allows them to use Google Translate instead of having to read through every word on their own.
Another benefit is that this feature makes it easier for both parties involved: the doctor who wrote up the chart and those who need help understanding it!
If possible, have another person in the room help with translation.
If possible, have another person in the room help with translation. This can be helpful if you don’t want to speak in English yourself and don’t know how well your current language skills are. They will speak to the patient in their own language, then translate for you.
Example: A Swedish patient visits a doctor’s office where the receptionist speaks only Spanish (her native language). The doctor needs some information from this patient but doesn’t know enough Swedish to ask it himself—so he asks his assistant instead!
How Google Translate works for voice translation
If you’re looking for a way to make communication with friends and family easier, Google Translate is one of the best tools on the market. It’s available on mobile devices as well as computers, so if you have an iPhone or iPad, or even an Android smartphone (like my own), you can use it right away.
Google Translate allows users to translate text in any language into their native tongue—or vice versa—and then download it for offline use in situations when there isn’t internet access available at all times. For example: let’s say I want my friend in Australia who speaks English fluently but doesn’t speak Spanish very well yet because he just started studying abroad there last month! Using Google Translate would allow me not only translate what he says from English into Spanish but also help him understand what I’m saying back before we start speaking again in person later today at lunchtime.”
You can use devices like Google Translate to help you understand your patients and get a general idea of what they’re trying to say. Although the translated text or conversation might contain mistakes, it can be helpful when you’re dealing with patients who don’t speak English.

Even if they don’t speak English as their native language, it’s still useful to know what words mean in order for them to communicate better with you and other medical professionals. Some people may not even realize how much of an advantage this tool is until they try using Google Translate on their own!
Hopefully, this article has helped you understand the importance of communicating with patients who don’t speak English well. As you can see, there are many ways in which technology like Google Translate can help you get through your day more easily and quickly. Now that you know what to look for when using a screen translator, hopefully it’ll make your workday go more smoothly.
