Regardless of the recommendations on always consulting the original sources, translations are, on many occasions, the only vehicle for transmitting the content of a work. Not everyone has the ability to understand complete works and medical concepts without the intervention of a translation process that puts in their language all the terms. This process requires specialized training and years of experience, which ensure correct reinterpretation and link the technical, linguistic and cultural variables.

In this way, interested parties, both authors and editors, are always advised to hire professional translators who are experts in medical literature; otherwise, they are exposed to serious structural and conceptual failures.

At Editorial Distribuna we specialize in translations of medical content into different languages like

Editorial correction

It is the process by which a corrector is responsible for validating that a written text conforms to the grammatical, orthographic and syntactic norms of the language in which it is being written. In other words, it consists of revising the text to conform to its intention and to its receiver; that the message transmitted is clear, does not lend itself to confusion and fulfills its function, either to educate or to inform.

Según la According to the Universidad Autónoma de Nuevo León, “Style correction is a process carried out by language experts who ensure that a text, regardless of its author, is intelligible by the readers of a community.”

Any type of writing that is to be shared or published should go through a process of correction: an academic thesis, a journalistic note, a literary work, an academic text, a business blog, among other contents.

In Editorial Distribuna we perform:

  • Spelling, syntactic and grammatical correction;
  • adjustment of medical terminology and bibliographical references, and
  • plagiarism detection.

Design and diagramming

CAlso known as layout. It is the process used for the development of graphic pieces, magazines, newspapers, books, booklets, brochures (brochure), etc., for both printed and digital format, through which a composition with the desired objectives is achieved.

The design must fulfil the function of communicating and transmitting a desired message or information; it must be flashy, effective, aesthetically and commercially encouraging the publication.

Diagramting fulfils the function of strategically organizing texts and images in a space according to their category, relevance and hierarchy, and, in turn, giving them a visual balance; it is important that the piece be pleasant and invite to read or be seen.

Finally, both design and diagramming have the purpose of visually expressing the communicative intention of the author of a book, that is, the visual must support and reinforce the writing; hence the importance of this process since it not only shapes the content, but also contributes so that readers can get a more precise idea of what the authors want to express.


It is a continuous and open process; the concept of editorialization focuses on the production, dissemination and validation of specific knowledge in physical and digital environments.

The editorialization that we develop in Editorial Distribuna allows us to develop medical content in any format to disseminate them through different media. The processes of research, writing and design make up this service, which is ideal for building socialization campaigns, articles of interest, publications, among others. In addition, the sources validated as support of the contents, that allow to provide the reader with scientific support and bibliographic support, are also an essential part of this process.


The illustration includes images capable of transmitting a message and usually accompanies texts, stories or concepts. Unlike sculpture or other arts, the illustration makes use of two-dimensional images that communicate and transmit an idea.

In Editorial Distribuna we produce drawings that represent medical contents (such as organs of the body according to the specialty that is required) or simply that accompany a scientific, educational or both text.


Printing is the process and result of reproducing texts and images on paper; it is an essential part in the editing of books and all kinds of publications. Although today the consumption of digital content, whether informative, educational, scientific or advertising, has increased considerably, printed books continue to hold the first place in the universal consumption of literature, and the power they have and their ability to reach the minds of this generation is undeniable.

At Editorial Distribuna we offer the printing process of all types of material, such as booklets, magazines, books of all formats and advertising pieces, including printing by demand.
