    Default transmittable

    Hi Sandra,
    I work for surgeons and transmittable/transmit is generally used although transmissable would be acceptable.

    Hi Sandra!
    I found "communicable diseases" for "enfermedades transmisibles".
    The definition would be as follows:
    Any disease transmitted from one person or animal to another directly or by vectors. Best wishes!

    I agree Sabrina, communicable is the word I would use to translate transmisible. Suerte!
