The Emergency Medical Spanish Guide (EMSG) is a tool designed for non-Spanish speaking health Care professionals to quickly ascertain vital medical information from their Spanish speaking patients.

Feature 1: Yes/No Answer Format

The guide contains questions, instructions and explanations logically divided among easy-to-find chapters. The questions are phrased in a YES/NO or optional answer format so that non-Spanish speaking health care providers may understand the patient’s answers.

Feature 2: Audio Capability

Our Audio Capability is clear and deliberately pronounces Spanish, which allows the Healthcare provider to repeat the question or phrase to the patient, or simply be audible enough for the patient to hear them directly.

Feature 3: Bookmarking

Depending on the patients' condition, this simple tool could be the difference between your patient being treated within the ‘golden window’ of their care, or not. That's why we created the BOOKMARK feature. Allowing the healthcare provider to build his/her own topic.

The Medical Spanish Application will direct the early phases - the most critical phases - of care.

BAD SPANISH - poor translations and spelling mistakes

Both the free version and the paid version of this app are full of bad translations and spelling errors. The Spanish text was obviously prepared by a computer translation program and was not checked properly by a human being who actually speaks Spanish. Furthermore, the program's developers appear to have created an immense number of sock puppet accounts with phony rave reviews of their product.

If you are in doubt, show the free version of this app to any bilingual English-Spanish speaker. Here are some examples of how bad the Spanish translations are:


"Is your vision blurred?"

MAVRO translation:

"Tiene la vista borrosa o nublada?"

What the MAVRO translation says:

"Is your view blurry or cloudy?"

The mistake that MAVRO makes, probably because they used a machine translation program, is that vista means view, not vision.

Here is how you would say it properly in Spanish:

¿Tiene usted visión borrosa o nublada?


"Shrug your shoulders."

MAVRO translation:

"Encoja sus hombros."

What MAVRO's translation says:

"Cripple your shoulders."

The mistake that MAVRO makes, and this is critical for medical professionals to understand, is that when you refer to parts of the body, you often use reflexive verb forms. Possessive forms are not used.

Here is how you would say it properly in Spanish:

"Encójase los hombros."


"When was your last bowel movement?"

MAVRO translation:

Cuando fue la ultima vez que defeco?

What the MAVRO translation says:

When was the last time that I defecate?

Here is how to say it properly in Spanish.

¿Cuándo fue la última vez que defecó?

What's missing in MAVRO's Spanish is the accent marks, and in Spanish they completely change the meaning of what has been said. In Spanish, the word defeco would normally be pronounced with stress on the second to last syllable. This means "I defecate." (By Spanish spelling rules it is actually spelled defequo.) However, the accent mark causes the stress to be moved to the last syllable, change the tense to the past tense so that it means "you defecated" (formal you) or "he/she defecated."

Perhaps MAVRO omitted accent marks because it was originally written using some kind of app development system that does not allow accents and diacritical marks. The result is bad Spanish, because accents often change the meaning of words.

The problem with MAVRO's translations is not just a few words. I'm not being pedantic. Whoever built the MAVRO app really doesn't know any Spanish, and probably has never studied any foreign language beyond the beginner level.

MAVRO's developer obviously doesn't understand the idea of idiom. An idiom is a combination of words that has a particular meaning when used together. In English, we are accustomed to the idea that pain comes and goes, or that it moves or travels. Spanish has no such idioms.

Here are some more examples of MAVRO's bad Spanish.


"Does the pain come and go?"

MAVRO translation:

"El dolor va y viene?"

What MAVRO is actually saying in Spanish is complete nonsense and would only be understood by a Spanish speaker who also understands English, which is not the point of the app. In Spanish, you say that pain diminishes and intensifies, not that it comes and goes. The verbs to use with dolor (Spanish for pain) are disminuir and agudizar.


"Point to where the pain travels."

MAVRO translation:

"Apunte hacia donde se va el dolor."

What the MAVRO translation says:

Aim [your gun] towards where the pain leaves.

Once again, this sounds ridiculous to a Spanish speaker because Spanish has no idiom that conveys the idea that pain travels. Yet MAVRO has translated "travel" literally using the verb irse, which means, "to leave" or "to go away". Furthermore, the verb "apuntar" (for which "apunte" is the command form) means "to point or aim" such as with a weapon or gun. Apuntar is not used in a more general sense to mean, to point. The correct verb to use when asking somebody to point to a source of pain would be "indicar," which is obviously cognate to "indicate" in English, but doesn't sound formal in Spanish the way it does in English.

Not only is the Spanish bad, but MAVRO has obviously manipulated all of the ratings systems by using a vast number of sock puppet accounts to submit phony rave reviews of its applications. Pardon my French, but this company and its Spanish language app is a pile of mierda.

Thank you- Mavro inc.

1- Who is Mavro Inc.?

We were the ★FIRST★ company to bring Medical Spanish to the Apple iTunes store, and the FIRST to offer AUDIO to our users on cross platforms. We have been active since 2004, and went live in 2007. Nearly 100,000 users have downloaded the EMSG. We believe we have the right product for you.


2- Medical Spanish Applications don’t work because we won’t understand our patient’s answers?

That is exactly why we started Mavro Inc.! Back in 2004 the founders of Mavro Inc. had a series of discussions about treating Spanish speaking patients. We agreed that no-matter a person’s language,race, religion or ethnic background all patients deserved our very best efforts in providing healthcare.

Our answer was to construct a series of yes/no/select-the-answer format questions according to emergency-relevant categories! We spent the rest of 2004-2005 assembling the best questions with the assistance of countless doctors, nurses, paramedic-firefighters, physician’s assistants and pharmacists. We then set about translating these questions (See below: How was the translation made?).

3- Aren’t yes/no/select-the-answer format questions ‘leading questions’?

Yes. The EMSG is exactly that: an EMERGENCY Medical Spanish Guide.

We at Mavro Inc. believe that all Health care workers in the United States want to provide the best possible care to their patients. Because the vast majority of hard-working American Health care workers do not have the time/resources to learn Spanish fluently they are in a tough position with their Spanish-only patients. When faced with an option between not communicating at all with a patient in a life-threatening emergency and asking ‘leading questions’ anyone would opt for the latter.

We urge the Health care workers to use our product to maximize the care of their patients. In most instances the ‘maximum care’ you can provide is to have the means to understand any and all of your patient’s questions and to be able to respond to them. For this ‘maximum care’ no translation guide will suffice. ‘Maximum care’ can only be provided as such with a fluent Spanish speaking Health care professional or the assistance of a legitimate medical-Spanish translator. For the sake of the patient and the license of the Health care provider no one should draw on a ANY translation guide for comprehensive translation! We believe it is the duty of the Health care facility to provide the resources for their Health care workers to be able to converse comprehensively with their patients.

Our main objective is to save lives through the best and most relevant questions in an emergency setting.

The EMSG remains the best★ product on the market.

4- How was the translation made?

The translation was made in a series of meetings from 2005-2006 between the developers and multiple first-language-Spanish translators from Mexico and Venezuela. We painstakingly sought to do the translation this way so as to best reconcile the different Spanish dialects from Central and South America. Therefore the translation provided is designed to be understandable to a broader population of Spanish speaking people from Europe, South and Central America. The hard-copy was tested and went through a series of revisions in both a local Level I & II Trauma-Centers in Dallas, Texas. During this time we further refined our translation by drawing on the expertise of multiple full-time, in-hospital, medical-Spanish translators and Spanish speaking doctors and nurses. We finnaly settled on a translation that was understandable to the broadest possible greater Spanish community; while at the same time, fully and clearly expressing the question or statement intended. The majority of our Spanish speaking patients in the United States hail from Mexico. The difference in tenses, accents and even vocabulary varies a lot from Mexico, Venezuela, Argentina, Peru and Spain. The Spanish we have used is designed to be maximally understandable between all of these regions but does not adhere to the specific rules of Spanish of any ONE particular region.

Spanish is a beautiful and complicated language. From one local region to the next the sentence structures and primary vocabulary vary greatly. The way in which Spanish is pronounced varies tremendously! We have deliberately excluded such devices as accent marks from our product to keep it effective to the Health care provider. The Emergency Medical Spanish Guide is not a didactic tool. It is through our vast experience that we found that non-Spanish speaking Health care providers have an easier time finding, reading, and pronouncing the questions/statements that they need in the format provided. Besides: Who needs accent marks when the App. will speak the question out loud?

5- Why choose Mavro Inc.?
Being the oldest, most established and best-selling App. are good reasons. BUT we would do not feel that they are compelling enough in themselves. Our top three priorities are: 1) Patient care, 2) Patient care, 3) Successful business through having the best product at the best price.

Standard posted response:

From the people at Mavro Inc. to our valued customers,

We have noted that an iTunes user has re-posted the same negative comments about our App. daily for Some time.

In order to reassure you of the excellence of our products and the services of our company we
have addressed these comments and points in our FAQ numbers, specifically in numbers: 4&5 ★

It has come to our attention that comments are being posted by or on behalf of one of our competitors who are seeking to undermine our business. Our only response to that is to say that we wish our competitors the best. We will not respond in-kind by attempting to subvert anyone else’s App. or sales.

We believe in clean business and seek to set that example by not resorting to malicious mud-flinging. Our product speaks for itself.

We thank you for your business!

★God Bless America★
