More translator relevance Aug 12

I enjoyed Carmen's lecture and the details of the drugs and their mechanisms were very interesting. However, I would have liked Carmen to relate the subject matter much more to a translator's POV. I felt it was more suited to an audience of budding pharmacists. She could have included links to some resources she habitually uses, some of the translation problems she typically encounters, perhaps some mistakes she has made, etc.

Resources I use Aug 20

Thank you for your comment. One of the resources I find extremely helpful is PubMed (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/). I especially use it for terminology research and to make sure I am using the correct terms for the scientific concepts presented. Another resource I use quite frequently is a a clinical trials registry (e.g. www.clinicaltrials.gov), which contains the official information for a clinical trial. The sections I most often look at are the official title and the inclusion and exclusion criteria (to maintain consistency). Finally, I always try to find a Summary of Product Characteristics for the particular medicine I am translating about, especially when the text involves the pharmacological properties of the medicine. I use the search terms [Summary of Product Characteristics for the language you want] and [Name of medicine].
