Dear colleagues,

Together with Laura Collada Ali, as study analysis of an article that is presently in preparation, I am currently conducting a survey to gather the views of medical translators on the eternal dilemma - what is it that makes a translator truly “qualified” to succeed in the medical field?
Who do you consider better qualified to translate medical texts - a doctor who has studied languages or a linguist who specialised in medical translation?

We hope that with your help, we can gain a little more insight into this fascinating issue.

If you work in medical translation, we would very much appreciate if you could take a few minutes to complete the following short questionnaire, designed to gather information on your experience and background, and what you consider to be the particular difficulties associated with this type of translation.

The results will be published in a future article in the EMWA journal “Medical Writing”.
All information is anonymous and confidential.

Thank you very much in advance!

Laura C Collada Ali & Fiona Grace Peterson
