Resumen:   Translating and interpreting in the highly regulated and specialized hospitals and courts of the United States require transferring concepts from L1 to L2 in the most consistent, efficient and effective manner. The English and Spanish translators and interpreters who work in these contexts for Spanish speakers in the United States are challenged by a target audience that includes individuals from every Spanish speaking country in the world, a diverse group of people with a number of linguistic and cultural differences. These challenges are compounded by the specialized language discourse inherent to health and legal systems that are new to the members of the target audience and often very different from the systems of their countries. The lexicon they use when navigating these new systems is generally learned in the context of the host country, and it has an impact on how they communicate in Spanish. Some of the language solutions that US Hispanics adopt in these circumstances include code-switching, lexical borrowing and hybrid creations that are functionally more practical in the new paradigm and that result in unique forms of Spanish. This study examines the challenges that professional medical and legal translators and interpreters face in the intercommunicative process of this environment. It also explores the translation decisions they make and their motivating factors. The results suggest that translators and interpreters, especially the ones with greater professional experience, negotiate between form and function, in order to fulfill the communicative demands of their profession.
