Who am I ?
A specialist of medical translation (7 years experience).
An interpreter liaising between people (consecutive translation whispered to persons in a meeting).
Why a specialization in the medical field ?
First out of passion, then out of experience, lastly because my father is a dental-surgeon, my brother an endocrinologist, my husband a physiotherapist, ... and my mother is hypocondriac !
" Woe betide the doers of literal translations, who by translating each word distort its meaning ! There you can say that the letter destroys totally, while the spirit gives fresh life ". VOLTAIRE (François-Marie Arouet, called), in Philosophical Letters, XVIII.
