Through this project, I have reaffirmed the importance of medical translation/interpretation. It is an increasing tendency that not only doctors and medical staffs but patients gather medical information on Internet, in journals and any other materials to determine their own therapies. I could say that the influence of medical translation/interpretation on society is getting bigger than before. What is desirable would be having concrete pictures of readers in each translator's mind to feel a closer relationship with our society and to be more interactive. (M. O.)
