Spanish to English medical translation by Dr M Jane Marshall MBChB
Medical advances shouldn’t be limited by language. That’s why Marshall Medical Translation offers translation of medical texts from Spanish to English. All translations are done by Jane Marshall, a British-trained doctor, turned translator.
I studied medicine at Glasgow University, in Scotland. Following graduation, I completed foundation years 1 and 2 (basic British postgraduate medical training) in Devon, England. I worked in haematology/oncology, emergency admissions, general surgery, medical assessment, neurosurgery/neurology, and trauma & orthopaedics.
I subsequently worked in New Zealand, in various surgical specialties, including plastic surgery, orthopaedics, and general surgery. However, I decided to leave clinical medicine in 2012, to pursue my love of languages, and began teaching English to medical and science students in Barcelona. Soon after that I began translating medical texts, and I haven’t looked back!
When I started university, we were told that the terminology we would learn over the coming years would be equivalent to learning a second language, and working in hospitals, I used that terminology on a daily basis. It is that academic and practical experience that helps me understand the medical texts I translate in greater depth. That means that you can be confident you´ll be getting an accurate, appopriate translation, written by a native British doctor.
I take my work seriously, and work with care, reading around those medical specialties I have not had the opportunity to work in, and aim to deliver the high professional standard I would expect in clinical medicine, applied to languages.
