Wikipedia Entry - Translation Project

Have you ever wondered who translates all those Wikipedia entries? Although most entries are written by experts or individuals who are passionate about the subject in their own languages, some entries require a more professional translation from the original. This is especially true for businesses, charity organizations, or private individuals (such as celebrities). Luccia was recently tasked with translating the Wikipedia entry for a German hospital into English. An excerpt of the translation can be found below:


Am Universitätsklinikum Mannheim werden jährlich rund 230.000 Patienten behandelt. Das Krankenhaus ist besonders bekannt für die Behandlung von Krebs, Gefäßerkrankungen und verfügt über ein überregional angesehenes Kinderzentrum mit hochspezialisierten Einheiten für Fetalchirurgie, Neonatologie, Kindermedizin, Kinderchirurgie sowie Kinder-Urologie.
