Emma Goldsmith originally trained as a registered general nurse at St Thomas’ Hospital in London. She moved to Spain in 1987 and for the following 10 years she worked as a staff nurse through the BNA (British Nursing Agency) during visits to England. This gave her broad experience in a wide range of hospital settings.
Meanwhile, in Madrid, Emma set up as a freelance Spanish-to-English translator, first working for local translation agencies and later — in the internet age — specialising in medicine for global companies and individuals. She now has more than 20 years’ experience in translating clinical-trial documentation, articles for publication in medical journals and product information for EMA submissions. Emma is a member of Mediterranean Editors and Translators (MET) and currently serves as Webmaster on MET’s Council.
Emma is giving a Friday pre-conference workshop entitled EU regulatory medical writing and EMA templates: Compliance and consistency. Emma will also participate in a panel discussion with Anne Murray, Marije de Jager and Valerie Matarese entitled Invasive species: Language versus subject specialists in biomedical editing and translation.
