While Kościałkowska-Okońska (2008), Muñoz-Miquel (2018), Badziński (2018) and Badziński (2019) indicated major issues in medical translation such as specialized terminology and inequivalences, in Vietnamese context, until the end of 2020, there was no research relating to specialized translation (Hoang, 2020). The aim of the study is thus to analyze problems in English-Vietnamese medical translation by medical translators and medical professionals. A survey questionnaire with further comments is used to understand key problems in medical translation. The paper discusses key position of some other problematic issues besides collocations that differs from Badziński (2019) results. A comparison with existing literature is fully incorporated as well.
