Medical record translations

To provide the best care, we request that all medical records be provided in English. To have your medical records translated, we recommend LanguageLine Solutions. They translate documents for many companies and are available to assist with this process. Simply submit your records to LanguageLine, and a translation representative will help you within 24 hours. Here at Tufts Medical Center, we are always looking for ways to improve the patient experience and we are happy to make this option available so that our world-class care can be accessible to all.
