Who I am and what I do
My name is Emma Goldsmith. I'm a Spanish to English medical translator and current Chair of Mediterranean Editors and Translators.

My background
I originally trained and worked as a registered general nurse at St. Thomas' Hospital, London. I then moved to Madrid, Spain, and used my medical knowledge and bilingual skill to become a freelance translator.

My qualifications
In addition to my nursing qualification, I also hold the Diploma in Translation, issued by the Chartered Institute of Linguists, UK. This is an EQF Level 7 post-graduate certificate. In 2013, I became an exam-certified member of the Institute of Translation and Interpreting (MITI).

Fields of work
I have more than 25 years' experience translating clinical trial documentation, articles for publication in medical journals, marketing authorisation applications, Summaries of Product Characteristics, Labelling and Package Leaflets, and Clinical Practice Guidelines.
In 2020 I translated about 275,000 words.

Related skills
