Experience in Spanish Medical Translation

Rather than use empty marketing language we would like to tell you who we are, how we started providing medical translations in 1989 in Spain and how we can now help you.

Two of our founding members were teaching English on a private one to one basis to Spanish doctors.

Additionally, some of our team were giving English language classes to post graduate research students in the sciences at the university of Murcia.

Because of this we knew that we were developing a professional friendship with people working in medicine and who better to turn to for advice and support.

Our First British Clients

There were many thriving British owned businesses along the Costa Calida, especially at La Manga and other beach locations.

Sometimes British people felt they needed to book an appointment with their G.P. or in some cases had to go into hospital.

Often, they had not yet developed their Spanish language skills and they naturally found the situation rather daunting.

This is where we came in. Perhaps their doctor was one of our students or maybe knew one of our students.

As a result of this we built up trust between ourselves, the medics and the English- speaking patient.

Given that we were known in the region, people could ask about us.
Hopefully recommendations would be positive.
They would then contact us privately.
Alternatively, we could be found in the corridors of the university.

At that time, of course we were young, studying post graduate degrees and we were excited to have the opportunity to help.

It became very clear to us that this was something that we wanted to do and it developed into a passion.
