I am preparing a new course titled, Written Translation for Healthcare Interpreters, and am in need of some suggestions for possible textbooks. This college course focuses on Spanish>English and English>Spanish translation of documents found in the healthcare setting, such as medical forms, patient questionnaires, letters, discharge instructions, etc. Ideally, texts related to English grammar, Spanish grammar, and translation theory are appropriate. If you have any resources to share, including online or print materials, I welcome your response!

Thank you,

Jennifer

'informed consents, patient education brochures, pre- and post-operative instructions, information sheets on drug interactions and side effects, and physical therapy instructions.'

Hello Jennifer
Perhaps you could come to an arrangement with this education provider to use their materials ...
