Meet our Authors: Goretti Faya Ornia – February 2018

Dr Goretti Faya Ornia is a graduate in Translation and Interpreting (Spanish, English and German) from the University of Valladolid, Spain, and specialised in medical and technical translation from both the University Jaume I and the University of Seville.

Being a professional translator, she performed her doctoral thesis on the translation of medical brochures in the Department of English, German, and French Philology of the University of Oviedo, where she worked for six years. Simultaneously, she collaborated with the online University Isabel I and the online Universitat Oberta de Catalunya. Currently, she is working as a lecturer and researcher in the Department of English Philology at the University of Valladolid.

Goretti has participated in a number of international conferences and research projects, and published several papers and books about medical language, communicative problems in the medical environment, translation and interpreting in healthcare contexts, text typologies, contrastive linguistics, and the use of corpora in translation. Because of her teaching experience, she is also interested in the area of English phonetics and phonology, and is currently conducting research in this field.

Under Cambridge Scholars Publishing, Goretti has authored Medical Brochure as a Textual Genre, which is “a book whose theoretical, methodological and descriptive sections can benefit both academics and practitioners of translation” according to Dr Patricia Rodríguez-Inés of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, and, more recently, A Handout on Medical English for Health Professionals, co-authored with Héctor Hernández Lázaro.

Goretti explains her reasons for publishing with Cambridge Scholars:

“I chose Cambridge Scholars because I wanted to publish the results of my research in an international and well-known publishing company, and at the same time I wanted to work with a clear and easy-to-contact company. I read carefully about Cambridge Scholars’ policies and research interests on their website, and as I liked their approach very much I went forward with publication. So far, I have published a couple of books with Cambridge Scholars, and I can say that they have proved to be a high-standard publishing company. Everything is very clear from the very beginning, and all the stages of the process are well-structured and well-organised. Cambridge Scholars have always complied with every single issue stated in the agreement as well as with the deadlines established in advance. They have always shown an excellent willingness to help (which I do really appreciate) and a great interest in getting a high-quality result (which, I think, has been achieved). Working with Cambridge Scholars has been a real pleasure and I will definitely recommend them to my colleagues!”
