My wife is a doctor: Can this be translated as 1) " Ma femme est une médecine . OR 2) Ma femme est médecin . Could you please let me know which one (if any) is correct, and an accompanying explanation would be appreciated. Thanks
You would say -
Ma femme est médecin
Ma femme est 'docteure'
( this was changed in 1993 to feminize trades and professions which previously only had male forms)
La médecine is the science and practice of Medicine.
It cannot be used as a profession.
Hope this helps!
