Collaboration of translators with medical authors: A qualitative enquiry into writing articles in English
Sabzevar University of Medical Sciences, Sabzevar, Iran
Keywords: translation; medical; limited English; translator; Iran
The interaction between non-English authors of medical articles and translators can be considered as a key component in perfect rendering of the content. In the era of rapid spread of research findings throughout the world, some researchers with little knowledge of English look for translation and editing services in order to share their findings in the global dialogue of science production. This paper will closely investigate the protocol analysis of an interview with a medical researcher and an intimate translator who has helped him for almost 10 years in translating his articles and research reports into English. The analysis will be classified in two major areas: language and publishing. Further details will be presented in the conference session.
