    Exclamation "Bad" medical translation?


    I am new member of the forum who studies translation and interpreting. At the moment, I'm doing a contrastive work between the English and Spanish medical language and I was wondering if any of you know about a text or a place in the web in which I can find a source medical text in English and its corresponding "bad" translation into Spanish. I really need an example of a really bad medical translation. I would be grateful if anyone could help me...

    Thanks a lot!
