    Anyone know a good website that translates English to Cantonese (with pronounciation)? Or Chinese to Cantonese?
    I did a google translate of sores and I get 疮 but I wasn't sure if this word is the Cantonese word "shuen"
    Taking grandpa to the doctor and need to tell the doctor 'shuen' in his legs. Is that sores?

    Thanks

    Joint stiffness causing aches and pain are common old age problems. Doctor should pick up the problem fairly easily even if there is a bit of language issue.

    瘡 is pronounced as chong in Cantonese. I believe your grandpa's leg pain is 坐骨神經痛. I google translated it and it turns out to be Sciatica. That seems right to me.
    Good luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I bet the doctor knows how to speak English.
    Ask the doctor if it's okay for your grandpa to use a leg massager. Those devices really help!

    thank you all for the help translating.

    I'm sure the doc does, but, my grandpa doesn't. He tells me in Cantonese, I don't know what's "shuen" (shuen tong) in English. I know "tong" = pain.

    lol .. I'm zero to none medical terminology; just got to translate types of pain to doc.

    I think he's saying 酸痛 (shuen tong). It just means pain.

    He might be trying to say 肌肉酸痛 which means muscle pain (gay yok shuen tong).

    lol, I said gay.

    Thanks. I can understand some Cantonese, but totally cannot read or write Chinese. Thank you for verifying that.

    Good resource. Thank you.
