Journal Articles

Authors need to translate their original research articles into English to submit them for publication in international medical journals.

Method

For every project, I create a corpus based on the keywords and references from the manuscript, to ensure correct and current terminology and language usage.

I contact the author during the translation process to clarify any doubts and suggest changes to improve readability.

A second specialised translator revises my translation.

When the journal returns the article with comments from the peer-review process, I translate the author’s response to these comments.

Instructions for Authors

Medical journals have strict standards to ensure the scientific rigor of published articles, their format and structure. I check the Instructions for Authors to comply with style, abbreviations, word count, figures, declarations of conflicts of interest and references.

Specialty

I am particularly experienced in translating cardiology articles.

Fees

A standard-length original article will cost about €600 to €900. That includes revision by another specialised translator and one round of responses to peer-review comments.

Testimonials

Like the reviews on the back of a novel, testimonials on translators’ websites are always glowing. But in this case it’s true: my clients are satisfied or actually delighted with my work 99.9% of the time. Read some of their comments in my testimonials’ section.
Spoiler: All testimonials are highly flattering.

SAMPLE

Fibrilación auricular no valvular

[...]El objetivo del trabajo es conocer las características generales de manejo y tratamiento antiarrítmico de una población general de pacientes con fibrilación auricular no valvular (FANV) actualmente en España.

El manejo de los pacientes con FANV tiene como objetivo reducir los síntomas y prevenir las complicaciones graves asociadas a ella. Se debe buscar ambos objetivos simultáneamente. La prevención de las complicaciones relacionadas con la FA se basa en el tratamiento antitrombótico, el control de la frecuencia cardiaca ventricular y el tratamiento adecuado de las enfermedades cardiacas concomitantes. Estas medidas pueden controlar los síntomas por sí solas, pero el alivio sintomático puede precisar también un tratamiento adicional de control del ritmo mediante cardioversión eléctrica o farmacológica o por ablación.

Nonvalvular atrial fibrillation

[...]The aim of this study was to identify the overall management and antiarrhythmic therapy used in the current general population of patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF) in Spain.

The goal of NVAF management is twofold: to reduce patients’ symptoms and prevent the serious complications of this condition. These two goals should be achieved simultaneously. The prevention of AV-related complications is based on antithrombotic treatment, ventricular heart rate control and appropriate treatment of concomitant heart diseases. These measures alone may be sufficient to control symptoms, but symptomatic relief may also require additional rhythm control treatment by means of electrical or pharmacological cardioversion, or ablation.
