    Question Online dictionary for common illneses

    Which is the best dictionary you used to translate colloquial or familiar health issues from spanish into english? I mean, those simple things that you explain to the doctor like a "rush" in your arm....

    When you have a "rash" in your arm, you "rush" to the doctor

    I use
    Spa to Eng
    This one is fairly good.
    I have to admit I've seen such terrible translations out there. In one glossary the sentence "You have an infection" was translated as "Tiene diabetes". Obviously this was a typo, but...oh my God!!

    If you need something more specific I recomend
    Eng to Spa

    Omg!

    "You have an infection" = "Tiene diabetes"

    Too funny!
