Abstract: China is the second world's strongest economy and the largest manufacturing economy and exporter of goods. Furthermore, it is also the world's fastest-growing consumer market. Veterinary Sciences are underdeveloped in China Universities due to a complete lack of veterinary specialists in the country. This paper describes the experience of a Board Certified Veterinary Pathologists during one week of teaching in the South China Agricultural University (SCAU), Guangzhou, China. A course (40 h) entitled “Fundamental and Practical Pathology for Veterinary Clinicians and Researchers” was provided to 100 attendees including; veterinary students, researchers and veterinary graduates. The teaching was given in English by a native Spanish with a C1 English level. The lectures were translated into Chinese using two modalities; simultaneous and consecutive. Significance differences regarding the adequacy of each method were noted after analysing a survey conducted at the end of the teaching. Simultaneous interpreting was preferred over consecutive by 82% of the attendees. The present work emphasizes the need of specialist veterinary medical training in China and highlights how simultaneous interpreting is a useful tool to provide veterinary pathology teaching in the context of a highly-specialised discipline.
