Translator from French to English. Editor of English texts. Coach.

I trained and worked in the UK as a doctor, working for 12 years as a general practitioner in inner city practices in London, after 11 years of medical studies and hospital training. I combined medical practice with journalism, most notably as an editor at the British Medical Journal for a period of 7 years.

In 2010 I founded Cabinet Beezer, a translation and editing bureau serving both local academics and international agencies. I enjoy the interest and variety of general translation work. My experience as a doctor makes me the translator of choice for many francophone authors who seek publication in journals of international repute. My new home town of Nantes finds itself at the epicentre of the French energy transition, and I have relished my acquisition of experience in the expanding field of the renewable energies, as well many engineering and robotics articles. I am a partisan for open access to the scholarly literature, and have closely followed developments in scientific publishing since the inception of the web.

My work has included:


* numerous translations of medical and psychological case records for translation agencies;

* translating and/or editing numerous articles for international publication;

* translating the Pays de la Loire Region's marine renewable energies press releases;

In addition to paid work, I do volunteer translations of significant local publications in aid of various local movements and associations.
