Medical Translation – Butterflies in your stomach

The translator uses his brain to find the most appropriate terminology to be used in his translation projects. In addition, he needs to deal with several problems on a daily basis, some of them related to a titanic amount of work, short time and tight deadlines.

That is when his stomach barely clinging to life either by pain for overeating or for the emptiness due to the anxiety to perform the translation and meet the required deadline. That is when he feels butterflies flying and making a completely mess inside his belly.

Therefore, bringing the issue up, shall we know a little bit more about the medical terminologies related to the stomach/abdomen?
