» The right search leads to accurate results
By Ligia Maria Ribeiro | Published 01/15/2019 | Medical Translation | Recommendation:
This article is meant for professionals who want to be medical translators. The approach is about the importance of researching terminologies used in this specific segment and which can be used incorrectly or have different options for different clients.
» Translating medical eponyms
By Valerie Scaletta | Published 09/21/2015 | Medical Translation | Recommendation:
Issues in translating medical eponyms across English and Italian
» How About Some Medical Translation?
By Verlow Woglo Junior | Published 10/4/2014 | Medical Translation | Recommendation:
Translators are, by the nature of their work and experience, linguists, technicians, researchers, scientists, writers, consultants and scholars - with or without formal training. So, if clients want a super qualified translator, they should also know that it does not come cheap. College and continuing education are expensive, and translators, by experience alone, are sometimes as qualified as any diploma bearing technician, college graduate or expert of any given field of knowledge or trade.
» Anglicismos léxicos y sintácticos en la traducción médica
By Marina Menendez | Published 05/20/2013 | Medical Translation | Recommendation:
En las traducciones médicas del inglés al español pululan los calcos (léxicos y gramaticales), los falsos amigos y las interpretaciones y traducciones erróneas. Clampear, condición, infante, patencia, severo, etc. son algunos ejemplos.
» Prospectos de Medicamentos. Responsabilidad del traductor: “... ante la menor duda consulte a su medico.... y/o traductor...”
By Mariana Toscano | Published 03/6/2006 | Medical Translation | Recommendation:
Considerando la importancia de encaminarse hacia un campo específico dentro de la traducción y en este caso, la traducción médica, puntualmente de prospectos de medicamentos; es fundamental valerse de las herramientas apropiadas para lograrlo. Tenemos gran responsabilidad en la elección de cada palabra y de los recursos de los que vamos a valernos. Para ello sugiero una especial atención a los pasos a seguir al enfrentar una traducción médica, los cuales generalmente se dan naturalmente, pero puede resultar interesante detenerse a estudiar con más hincapié.
