Lost in translation – Chris

While Spanish is Spanish all over the world, I am thankful for the presence of our interpreters – from the local population, the Church of Latter-day Saints, and whoever else I forgot! – that bring context to the words and phrases used by our patients in clinic. Aspiring Spanish speakers that were predominately trained analyzing literature and poems had to learn on our feet what the patients were trying to tell us. When something got lost in translation, it was a relief to find out that someone could quickly clear up any misunderstanding. Thank you to all of our interpreters!
