English to Arabic translations [PRO] Medical
English term or phrase:Les sensations muqueuses
This document is about having new braces fitted and the pain that one might experience afterwards. Thanks for any advice.
Les sensations muqueuses : Les premiers jours des irritations des muqueuses plus ou moins importantes sont normales.
Explanation: Sorry, I don't know Arabic. However, I do know French and the text you request help with is in French, not English. To insure that you get proper help with it, please resubmit your query with FRENCH as the source language. The meaning of your text in English would be:
From Termium, muqueurses :
English:Anatomy of the Digestive Tract
Anatomy of the Respiratory System
mucosal s CORRECT,ADJ
DEF - Pertaining to the mucous membrane. s
It literally means, “irritation of the mucous lining of the mouth.” I chose this non-literal approach because the context you posted reads like a user-friendly text, possibly directed to the patient, the parents (if the user is a child, which is often the case), or to the general public. It is not heavily technical in style. For that reason I would advise avoiding such monstrous expressions as AL-IHSASAT AL-GHASHAWIYYA
or, God forbid, AL-IHSASAT AL-MUKHATIYYA
...although such expressions might be deemed more "accurate." This is the approach we use at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center when we translate patient teaching/patient education material. I think your client will appreciate your stylistic sensitivity.
