Good day, everyone.

We recently had a discussion on the Italian forum, starting from the Certificate of Proficiency in English I will soon re-take after 17 years (just for the sake of *re-assessing* my knowledge of the language).

In the end we all agreed on the fact that - in our profession as in many others probably - continuous education is a must.

I have a question on the subject:
although I specialize in electrical engineering/ electronics tech&legal documents (language pairs EN>IT, FR>IT), in the last couples of years I slowly moved to pharma-med texts, although mainly from a technical point of view (e.g. software for lab devices, surgical devices...).

Can anyone suggest some resources (on line courses, books, etc...) on the subject?
It looks as though there is a big market here and I would like to get some in-depth insights.
I do not want to tread into anybody else's areas, just want to do my job better, if I can.

Thank you in advance for your help.
