In a world of “good practices”, creating a code of best practices for medical translation is an as yet unmet need. But, in 2013, there are still many other things to be done in the field of medical translation. This course reflects on is the views of a medical translator on these two issues, with a proposed action plan for the short term: 1) given the reliability/usefulness of the tools already available, translators need to accept the authority of these tools and include an authority statement in their webs and CVs; 2) a pan-Hispanic EN>ES medical dictionary; 3) a definition of medical translation and the creation of a “paramedical translation”discipline; 4) a generalized awareness that medical translators must read, learn and translate every day of their lives; and 5) the need to acquire the part of background that is lacking (i.e., linguists need acquire medical knowledge and vice versa).
